Destructoid: The Atari 2600 Game

   0
I've recently been taking a bit of time outta my not-too-busy schedule to learn how to create games for the Atari 2600. Since I love Destructoid so much, I've decided this site of awesome deserves it's own (semi) official game. Since I'm new to programming in general, I'll take the time to get it right instead of rushing out shit (which caused the downfall of the 2600 in the first place).

I've got a few ideas floating around, and quite a decent amount of code down already, so this is slightly beyond pre-production phase already. Here's the proposed title screen, running fully coded in a 2600 emulator:



This single (or potentially multiple) copy(ies) will then be available to win through a competition I'll make. It won't be for sale or anything, and I'd pay for shipping etc.

I won't show any actual gameplay yet, since everything is so liable to (and will) change. I'm basically only learning 2600 homebrew for this project, and I'm still quite the novice, so if you have any knowledge at all, and wouldn't mind answering a few questions or even helping out, that'd be much appreciated.

Stay tuned...
