FYI: I received the RETRO two days ago. Thanks@ GHI/OC!
@ iwritecode: I intend to submit an even better game!
But don’t worry, at the moment I’m still working on the basics, such as more productive debugging and dealing with the limited resources of the console. (How to load the 50 MB intro movie in 8kB RAM?
Congratulation to all 51 winners and thanks to GHI for this sweet piece of hardware
How many people did apply for a free Retro Game Console?
I didn’t apply, because I don’t know if I have enough time until the deadline.
So I just buy it. 8)
By the way:
In the shop description and on the wiki page is no comment if this is a black/white, grayscale or RGB display. This information could be interesting for people who think about to buy it.
A few days ago I got a game idea: Tower of Hanoi
This will be a re-implementation of my game which I wrote with Turbo Pascal under DOS at my school time. My IT teacher didn’t want to make me boring with computer beginner stuff. So he offered me to write this game instead.
I’m sad that the GIF animation doesn’t work. So have a look to the linked Wikipedia page.
