timdu Posted May 19, 2008 Share Posted May 19, 2008 If you didn't know, Issue #100 of the 2600 Connection is scheduled to be published on July 1, 2009. We would like to celebrate the milestone of the 100th print issue of the 2600 Connection with an exclusive videogame! So if you are a homebrew programmer and you would be interested in helping us release a special game, please let us know. Or, maybe we will find a prototype that can be released at the same time as issue 100. We still have over a year, so we are still in the planning stages. But - you'd be surprised how fast time flies when you plan things like this! We have not worked out all the details yet..but the idea is: when you receive issue 100, it will also come with an Atari 2600 videogame! How cool would that be? #100 (Jul / Aug 2009) will feature: COLOR pages... (we have never done this before - we have always published black and white pages with greyscale pictures) A large number of pages... a very thick issue (we don't have a total yet but wouldn't something like a 100 page issue be outstanding?) Perhaps we could offer full-page ads to anyone for a minimal fee (such as $5 or $10) A restrospective look back at the past 100 issues.. Letters from Readers News & Notes Classified Ads and MUCH, MUCH more We are not looking to make a boatload of money on this project. If we can break even, I believe that would be a good goal to strive for. We just thought it would be cool to do something special for issue 100. We still have lots of details to work out, but right now if you'd like to help or if you would like to contribute, that would be great. GOT ANY IDEAS?
