This looks rather good (and sorry that I haven't tested this much - I was offered such, but just haven't found the time to try it much, but did a bit - jumping that flame is not easy - and I keep getting killed by the darn fish). Looking forward to release of game.

Awesome news!!! Screens look great! Please make the boxart complement the game!

I also wanted to suggest H.E.R.O. as the next candidate but Dieter beat me to it :)

My Nicolas Cave project was inspired by hero:
https://videopac.nl/forum/index.php?topic=2073.0
Anyway, my expectations is to create another Ody exclusive (and probably Nick will lost his gun)

The cave and Nicolas looks fantastic. Do you actually work on this game  ???

I think its one of many many many of your projects.

Do you have worked in the past at Philips Brazil,  because all your games look so professional !

Where do you get your knowledge of programming games for Odyssey and do you have made games for other systems, or are you Odyssey exclusiv  ???

Now also on youtube: Tom Beck collect...

Thanks Tom :)
Well, about Nick, I just made one more screen, it gave me an idea how the game should be. Keep on Nick is one of my goals for this year, let´s see.
I never worked on Philips, but I loved to be there to help the Odyssey team :)
About programming, I never programmed before. But since I was kid I ever loved the Ody and dreamed to make a game for it.  Fortunately, with the internet, was could possible to know all these amazing people, like you with and our friends here and your nice words, Soeren by the great work with tutorial, manopac by keeping O2em and this nice tools and specially René :-*, he was my very patiente teacher. Be sure, I´ll never be a good programmer like these guys, make thinks like AI on Roboto robots!, fine scroll like Down!, but I´m happy I realized my dream. Finally, I just programm for Ody, if I had to chose another system it was Intv, to convert some ody classics for that. ;)

Tom Beck

I am glad, that you have the dream to make Odyssey games. One of my dream is to play Videopac games till I am old.  You and other make this dream happen. So, I am very grateful, for all your work  :)

Philips were also be glad to have people like you in the Videopac/Odyssey team in the eighties. But at that time we could only play there games. Now we play your games.

Odyssey games on Intellivision? Good idea. Then they will have finally good games  >:D

I like Intv, it´s my 2nd fav console. I think it had some Ody inspiration on it´s conception. The touch numeric control. They created their own standard opnenig screen (just like our classic Select Game), their own font and ever their own O2man ;)

Wow! I was absent here for too long. This looks very promising! I'm really curious how the final game will be. Count me in when you release it! :)

I need your help!  As you know, we are planning on releasing WILDLIFE! in March 2014. We would like to do a release of 100 serial-numbered cartridges.

Do you have any duplicates or triples or quadruples of loose Odyssey2 or Videopac cartridges that you do not need?

Do you have extra SPEEDWAY!/SPIN-OUT!/CRYPTO-LOGIC! cartridges just lying around?
Extra BOWLING!/BASKETBALL! just gathering dust?  Extra FOOTBALL! and / or BASEBALL! cartridges buried at the bottom of a cardboard box?
Extra ALIEN INVADERS - PLUS! cartridges that have not seen the light of day in years?

If so, I want them!

These cartridges will be used and recycled and made into WILDLIFE! cartridges.... 

if you can help us out, please let me know

thanks

So if we send you a cartridge, we get Wildlife at a discount?   ;)

timdu

I am sorry - I cannot offer discounts on WILDLIFE! at this time. I am hoping to keep the price point at the same price ($25 US Dollars) of our previous 2 releases in 2013 and 2012.

I was kidding.  PM me the information.  I have at least one cartridge that no longer works and I can't sell.  Someone might as well get some use out of it.

I added a short 23-second video of me playing the game in the first post.

Enjoy!

Do we have a release date for this?  Looking very forward to it.
