2600 Connection is proud to release WILDLIFE! ,  the latest Odyssey2/ Videopac game from Rafael Cardoso.

Here is a description of the game:

Somewhere in the middle of the Brazilian jungle, Josué Jorge is lost and nearly at his wit's end,
but the thought of finding the Holy Grail keeps him going.
His quest will not be easy, for many dangers await him -
Wild natives, killer crabs, abandoned bonfires...
and the deadliest of them all - "The Aquarium"  - a secret underwater series of passage ways.
Hold your breath and swim fast, but do not touch the walls of the underwater passage ways.
You can do this! But beware... lethal clown fish protecting something shining there in the depths below.
Could it be the Holy Grail?  
Stay focused! There is time, but you must be quick and you must be careful.
Good luck on your quest for the Holy Grail, Josué Jorge! You'll need it!

It is a limited release of 100 serial-numbered games.  ( 1 of 100, 2 of 100, 3 of 100, etc.)

Pricing is $25 plus shipping    ($6 for shipping in the USA, $15 for everywhere else in the world)

Includes cartridge, manual, and clear plastic storage box.

An 11 x 17" poster of the artwork will be available for sale as well within the next few days.

I unfortunately already sent you the money, but I like to get a poster too. Can you maybe tell me what I have to send you additionally?

Hi everyone

I am trying to ship a few games each day on my way home from work. I got stuck on a project at work and I was not able to get to the post office on Thursday.
Hope to get there today. Real life is interfering with my hobby. Hope to get more games out today and Saturday 3/21 and 3/22.
I am up early this morning at 4am boxing up and games and getting them ready to go. Thank you for your patience and support!

Happy Sunday everyone! Good news. 50 of the 100 WILDLIFE! serial-numbered games are sold!
That is half of the 100 games made!

(Granted , a few of those are comp. games ( Rafael, Rene, Darrin999 - the winner of the contest) but still - I think it is a great accomplishment.

Wow! That is fantastic. I am so glad we decided to make 100, as this game would have been sold out within the first week!

Can you believe it? Is WILDLIFE! the fastest-selling Odyssey2 / Videopac homebrew game ever? Is this a record?

Hats off and congratulations to Rafael for creating such a fine game!  :)

OK -  I need to go to my local office supply store. I honestly did not expect to sell so many WILDLIFE! games
so quickly. I need to buy some more small shipping boxes as I am nearly out from my supply stash!

Thanks by your comments, Tim. To be honest I dont know if it´s a record or not, probably not. What I hope is that people who buy the game, be happy to have it. I'm just a guy who likes Odyssey and loves creating games for it, and I am very grateful the persons who made this possible, especially René. Sometimes I think of stop publishing games, but the joy and encouragement from some people make me go back. Wildlife does not claim to be the best game of our lives, if only because I think nothing can replace the classics (like forgetting aqeles long weekend playing Turtles), all I hope is that they can have fun with it. BTW.: This is all a joke, we won´t find natives like this here in Brazil ;)

Hi Rafael,

I really love what you do. Your graphics work on the platform is especially great.

I hope there will be much more to come.  :)
