Intellivision Amico
« on: November 18, 2018, 04:40:56 AM »
Anybody have the inside scoop on this new machine.
What SDK does  it use to program the machine.
I know, I know, contact the website to see if I can get a developers sdk kit, which I have already done.
From what I have herd on youtube channels like ReviewTechUSA and Dreamcastguy,  i like the approach that Tommy Terrico is taking regarding the games on the machine.  I do believe to sell the game, they need !! EXCLUSIVES !! and that excites me.  Whereas the PC, XBox, PS4, and Switch are a little overcrowded, this machine seems like a haven for indie developers if you know what you're doing.

Anybody else excited about the machine, and developing for it?

I think it's a way off yet, there are no games shown running and it could just be another Ouya.  Time will tell.

And what happened to that new Atari Console?

Yeah, I was all hyped for that one as well, me being a fan of the Atari flashback systems.  Though I think the name (Atari VCS) is terrible, and the design is awful.

I love the design, a modern twist on the old original...But everybody knows Atari died...Nolan Bushnell would be spinning in his grave - if he were also dead.

I just wish people would stop trying to cash-in on the Atari name - like the 'Amico' people are trying to cash-in on the Amiga name through similarity.

I was with you, but

is a very long bow to draw.
