Beta Testing Time!

Ok, Anguna 2600 is ready for some testing!  I'm looking for testers to try playing the game (either in an emulator, or on an actual Atari with a Harmony cart or similar device), and let me know what bugs and issues you find!

The main features aren't likely to change at this point, but I'm looking to fix any bugs and possibly tweak the game difficulty.

You can download the instruction manual and current build from this post on AtariAge.  Please email me (nathantolbert at gmail) or leave comments if you find any bugs or issues.  If you find any problems that I fix, I'll also credit you in the instruction manual if you'd like, if so, let me know how I should credit you.


Next steps:

  • My friend Tim Lapetino, author of the upcoming Art of Atari book, is designing art for the cartridge label (hopefully to be re-used on the manual as well).
  • I'll be updating the game and manual to fix any issues found during the beta test
  • Hopefully later this fall, if all goes well, everything will be finished, and I'll do a cartridge release through the AtariAge store.
