New 2600 games from Thomas Jentzsch, Simon Quernhorst, and Chris Read are in the works for later in 2014 and beyond. 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, along with a sequel to this game.
In late 2014 (and into early 2015), Packrat Video Games, LLC will hopefully be taking over production of Vectrex games made by John Dondzila. All materials are in and PCB/EPROM worked well. Now packaging testing begins. More news on this as things progress. Looking forward to keeping John's games alive for Vextrex fans everywhere (plus Vectrexcarts.com games - and Mark de Smet's VeCaves / SpikesSpree too)!
As of July, Packrat has been given permission thanks to Jay Smith, to legally build any original GCE game!
Packrat Video Games, LLC is a proud producer of quality Atari 2600 and Odyssey2 homebrews and hacks. We also specialize in new classic video game merchandise, and are always looking for new projects! We appreciate your patronage!
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).
Our current parts supplier has finally shipped our last order, and we expect to have more 2600 games back in stock during September. Those on any wait lists will be contacted soon.
We are continuing to work on getting deals in place with new parts suppliers, so we can do a better job of keeping 2600 games in stock. Thanks for your understanding in this matter!
(We are working with two potential new PCB designs for current and future Atari 2600 releases. More info on this as testing moves forward).
