Does anyone intend to buy? We could think of bringing Odyssey back.

I ordered the Founders Edition.

Yes I have high hopes, we'll see what the future will bring.

Unfortunately the dollar had a big increase here. It ended up getting pretty expensive. :'(

I will wait and see, what the OMNI console has for us.

For me, of course, are the Ed Averett games the most important games, like KC Munchkin

There will also be a new version of Quest for the Rings.

Here are 2 concepts screenshots. But one look more like Crazy Chase in my opinion  ;:)

You have more info on this OMNI?

The great thing about the Amico is that's it intended to be played with friends "in the same room" just like in the old days and not for online gaming. This really appears to me.
Also the fact that you install an app on your phone which you can use as a controller and that way play with upto eight players at once.

Anyway, their campaign has succeeded in winning me over  :D

I'm interested in the Amico but waiting to see the physical system and games before considering purchasing. It looks promising. I like the family/group focused games but it may not be released until my chicks have flown the nest  :D

The omni is really cool looking (I am also a colecovision fan). I just question if it will every get built. They have already changed the concept since it was first announced. I understand how hard it is because this is a hobby for most of these creators and finding time to concentrate on "fun" stuff can be hard.

I've pre-ordered the Founders Edition. Looking forward to it, and hope it does well.

I put down a deposit almost 2 years ago.  Still waiting.
I guess if it ever ships I'll have one, but I'm not holding my breath.

I cancelled my founders edition.
I hope they will release it but I don't think it will have a very long life. The games they showed didn't really make my heart start racing.
