Thanks Marc. Now I will get maybe someday a VP and OČ version. But still not enough to release it.

No more people here, who want to have this great release, or more than one version  Huh? Huh? Huh?

But there is also the possibility that the programmer is more reasonable. We have seen, in these years, incredible games being launched by guys like Ted, Soeren, Ivan etc, all done out of love for the console. I'm sure Shark Attack is a great game, but it doesn't seem right to me to have to buy 10 copies of the game for it to be released, it's like becoming hostage. I like, in my games to give options for Odyssey and VIdeopac fans, but each one buys what is in order, if the game sells 10 or 100 copies it will be released in the same way. If the person wants to do something just for money, maybe consoles like Intellivision or Colecovision are the best option. I think it's fair that he wanted to receive something (there is wear and tear on materials, etc.), but why can't the person receive it as the games are sold?

You are absolute right Rafael. But unfortunately, for this programmer, I think, isn`t it love for the system. Only a business. And then, again right Rafael, were Coleco and INTV better for him. There they can sell hundreds of games. Sometimes I feel so minor, that I collect Videopac, when I see, how many games they sell. Team Pixelboy for example, had in the past a special project with the "Budged Series" for the Colecovision. There he had to assemble and sell over 1000 ! cartridges.

But is our fanbase really so small, that there are no more then 16 !  people (with no doubles), who want to have such a great release like we had with Space Cavern? Optical one of the best homebrew releases we had, with the amazing Apollo box.

So, I think, this project is dead and I feel smaller than before.  Sad

Bye SHARK ATTACK !

You are right but I can not do anything, it is a sine qua non condition from the programmer.

Maybe our Odyssey2 fans from the US could help? It seems to me, that there are now more fans than here.
Somebody, who is better in english  Roll Eyes , could make promotion for this game at Atariage.

Maybe, we have luck and there are 21 fans for this game  Huh?

Maybe sharing this in the Odyssey/Videopac group on Facebook might help. Seems a lot of people are following that.

Yeah, that would be a good idea. I am pretty sure that would generate some orders.
