Elektronite Interview Questions Needed
« on: July 28, 2012, 19:39:12 PM »
[align=center:3r97x1ku][/align:3r97x1ku]

Elektronite was born in Italy in 2005 as a no profit project, thanks to the initiative of Valter Prette at http://www.intellivisionworld.com.

The aim of the new brand was producing development tools and documentation expressly for Mattel Electronics Intellivision platform. Intelliware has been the first attempt to introduce an integrated emulation plus development environment for newbies.

There latest game was D2K arcade "A game that finally gives coin-up fans something they can only dream of before".

Questions needed please.

Q: what drew them into developing solely for the Intellivison , why not colecoVision or Atari Lynx or Atari 5200 etc..is there a steep learning curve in creating games ?

Q:How hard it to concept a game from paper to screen and roughly how long does it take to achieve from a developers point of view?

Q:what is your most favorite game on the IntelliVision and why?

Have they considered programming for the 2600?  Any chance they'll make a better DK version for 2600?

What did it take to bring such a good port of DK to the Intellivision?  What kind of special software/hardware was needed to develop the game?

Are they planning to update any more games?

Are they working on any original titles?

Have they thought about making a better controller for the system?

Would you consider making games for others systems?

For people not familiar with you or your work, tell us a bit about Elektronite?

How many copies of D1K and D2K have sold?  Are you satisfied with the reception the game has had?

What was the first homebrew game you released?  How many homebrew games have you released since you started?  What are they?
