I guess it has to do something with animals. Since oktober 4th is animalday in the netherlands.
Think it's a videopac port of duckhunt  >:D.

No, it is not Spaans!!!
No, it is not an erotic game.

Well I know there won't be cows or blood so you can strike that one.

But he didn't say there won't be some orphan limb removal involved...


Title: Re: There is coming a new Videopac Release at 4-10-2009

But could it be Playtag..? I think thats what the game is called... one dot has to catch another.

I just find it odd that we are going to get three releases in one month.... Spread it out guys...  :P

Post by: manopac on September 30, 2009, 03:26:43 PM
its just good that I don't have too much time to develop my game ... otherwise we would have released it at the Eurocon in Vienna on October 25th, and it would have been 4 games in one month :-)

now its just a demo I will show (and let people play) at the Eurocon and I am aiming for an very early 2010 release ...


Title: Re: There is coming a new Videopac Release at 4-10-2009
Post by: Seob on September 30, 2009, 07:09:25 PM
better a few releases at one time then no release at all  ;).


Title: Re: There is coming a new Videopac Release at 4-10-2009
Post by: Ozyr on October 01, 2009, 04:36:33 PM
yeah, but it is a bit of money for one month... That is my issue...

Post by: steelballs on October 02, 2009, 07:14:12 AM
Another example of good communication between the videopac enthusiasts ???............would have been no problem to co-ordinate the releases a bit further apart (but then that would involve talking to each other now and again), don't think I'll be buying any unfortunately, 3 in one month is a lot and I don't have that much cash over for videopac, Like Seob said though better than nothing  :D

Post by: Rene_G7400 on October 02, 2009, 09:40:31 AM
You don't have to buy the games the day they are released. Most games don't sell out in a month.

Post by: immergruen on October 03, 2009, 11:15:48 AM
So has anyone guessed yet which game that will be?
Homebrew, Crazy Horses, a lost eprom like Pink Panther or He-Man, some Melrep stuff? Maybe even just a regular Videopac with graphic enhancement?

And what about the other two? One is Robo City, right? But I haven't really figured out the other one? Is it that lovely game with the  UFO catching cows or PAP2 or whatever? Or a re-release of Route 66?

Let me know!!!!


Title: Re: There is coming a new Videopac Release at 4-10-2009

My guess is it will be a re-release of Route-66 but that is just a guess...

For the record, not true from the UK, I'd get charged the equivalent of over ?10. I'm guessing that is the same for the rest of the world that doesn't work in euros.

I thought it was bad enough he was smoking, now I see its a joint! Must be the most adult looking cover design so far?

Post by: RickO2 on October 05, 2009, 03:55:03 PM
Thank you Renee and Bas for the new addition to the videopac/odyssey2 library!

The cover art isn't what I would expect.  It is a referance to tagging buildings but the game is about the childrens game of playing tag.  I suppose it is a clever play on the name.


Title: Re: There is coming a new Videopac Release at 4-10-2009
Post by: grgh on October 05, 2009, 04:30:42 PM
Yeah I wondered about that, and I wondered why the bloke at the back was reading a book, but I thought I'd give the game a try first to see if it was relevant.

Post by: steelballs on October 06, 2009, 06:50:20 PM
He could have at least offered discount after using the forum to help promote the release, sure a lot of the collectors outside of Holland/Germany wouldn't have known much about it otherwise ???

At least you got 2 cool looking stickers, I'm assuming you didn't buy much more as sometimes the prices can be absurd at these events ???

I thought those stickers looked pretty cool.  I don't think Magnavox/Philips did as much promoting with swag (free handouts) for the Odyssey2 as they did the Videopac.  I don't ever remember seeing stickers.  I have seen pitcures of a pen for Killer Bee's but those seemed to be released in smaller quantaties and probably targeted the major cities in the US.

Yes the stickers are nice  ;D especially the Munchkin one. I didn't buy anything else, as you say, mostly the prices are insane. I saw a commie SX-64 but I didn't even bother to ask for the price. There was a good working Vectrex for ?55,- which I thought was a fair price, especially at a retrofair.
