The Harmony cartridge came in and I got to play test my game on an actual Atari 2600 System!! On T.V.! I didn’t do any coding today but wanted to write about playing. My girlfriend and I took turns “playing” my prototype. Even though there is not much actual gameplay yet, this was a blast! And a big step into achieving this little dream of mine. Seeing my creation on T.V. although not yet finished has been something I have always wanted to do since I was a kid and first played an Atari system. I remember playing Yar’s Revenge in my neighbours basement. The cover art on the cartridge is what sucked me in and got me to try it out. It was amazing. The fun we had playing that little game, I knew instantly that I wanted to make my own. I didn’t think it could be too hard. I use to draw out my own video game maps at recess on paper as a kid.
Now this many years later and finally being able to see my little project come to life on an actual Atari system on an actual television. I have to say, it felt really really good and has me excited and motivated even more to complete this. The finish line is in sight. 😁
