Great news, Janzl. Can you gave more details about the game, or even a screenshot. :D

The name of the game is Cow-Fever. You are an alien who goes to earth to kidnap cows in his UFO. Because the demand for cowmeat is very high at your planet it is your job to deliver it.
After leaving your mother ship you will have to shoot down other aliens who are attacking you. The competion for cowmeat is at its highest level in the universe.
When you have completed your journey to space you arrive in the earth's atmosphere. Here you try to collect cows by using your tractor-beam. When you are done doing that you have to get back to your mothership but first you have to avoid all those aliens again. Your goal is to collect as many cows as you can before you run out of lives.

Here is another screenshot taken from Ren?'s G7400:


Its the earth screen.

The work on the game progresses slowly and when there is more info I will let everybody know. Of course the plan is to release it, but as I have no experience with that I will see in the future how the release will be handled.

That game sounds awesome!  The idea is totally original also, I can't wait!

Do you blow up when other aliens attack you? I'd love to see a big chunk of cow meat splat and slide down the screen  :D

It was after reading some of the GST stuff where they were saying about not making videopacs too violent for the gentle European market that I started thinking we should have some blood effects! It would still be nothing on games that were coming within 10 years of the ody/vp market.

That would be awesome!  What exactly could you do with the O2 in that respect?  What happens if you push the O2 to do all it can do, what would happen if you continue to push it?

I think it will just freeze.

I see, that makes sense.  Seeing it is basically a basic computer.
