Coming In 2014! - New Games!

New 2600 games from Thomas Jentzsch, Simon Quernhorst, and Chris Read are in the works for later in 2014. A few of these will be older but new games to the Packrat library of games.

Shooting Gallery/Minefield by Rafael Cardoso for the Odyssey2 and Traffic by Chris Read are planned for Summer 2014. Our first Odyssey2 hack game should be out later in 2014 or early 2015 too, along with a sequel to this game. More news as details get finalized.

New - Vectrex on the Way!

Sometime in the 2nd half of 2014, Packrat Video Games, LLC will hopefully be taking over production of Vectrex games made by John Dondzila. The initial cartridge shell order is in, and the PCB order will be placed soon. More news on this as things progress. Looking forward to keeping John's game alive for Vextrex fans everywhere (plus hopefully Vectrex.com games and others as well)!

As of early July, Packrat has been given permission thanks to Jay Smith, to legally build any original GCE game (with the exception of AnimiAction due to technical reasons)!

Also, all Vectrexcarts.com games will be available later in 2014, per prior agreement with John Dondzila. More as these games near production again.

Mr. Roboto - Back in Stock!

Mr. Roboto for the Odyssey2 / Videopac systems is finally back in production, being the last of the original six games offered by Packrat nearly a decade ago. This outstanding game by Ted Foolery now completes our restocking of older O2/VP games, and paves the way for new games later this year. Stock is limited for now, till we get production ramped up more (we just printed our first few copies).

(On a side note: Odyssey2 game prices have gone up a bit as of July 1st, 2014, due to various production cost increases).

Sales Startup after MGC 2014!

With the Midwest Gaming Classic over (see banner below), online game sales have been restarted as of April 16th. It is taking longer to restock than we hoped for, but it will happen. Expect some delays in orders as we are still getting back up to normal speed. Thanks for your understanding in this matter!

(On a side note, we are working with two possible new PCB designs for current and future Atari 2600 releases. More info on this as testing moves forward).
