GroovyBee Posted November 26, 2013 Share Posted November 26, 2013 I was at eJagFest in Germany at the weekend just gone (23rd/24th November). Leading up to the event I was asked several times if I could bring Hover Bovver along for people to play. I also took along my 7800 and XM too :- <---- Click to enlarge I haven't touched Hover Bovver since August so people could play exactly the same game (v1.39) as shown in this video :- and its also the very same version that Jeff Minter played and tweeted about at Play Expo back in October. I really enjoyed watching people play the game and also seeing their reaction to it. Some players made use of the game's ability to start at any of the 16 levels and they also checked out the game's two player mode too. Interestingly a couple of players had no experience with a real Inty but still managed to get on with the game and the system's quirky controllers fine. Unfortunately, it wasn't possible to run a high score contest all day for the game because some attendees also wanted to see what other projects I'd been working on. Anybody that stopped by for a chat got to see several tech demos and play WIPs and announced/unannounced games on both the Inty and 7800. However, I did manage to take a photo of Hover Bovver's high score chart late on Saturday evening :- <---- Click to enlarge Well done NAT! It was a fun packed two day event. Its always good to catch up with your friends, talk to developers on different platforms, play and see homebrews in all stages of development and chat about the retro hobby. This years eJagFest was extra special because its the 20th anniversary of the jag's release so it was two days instead of one. The jag/Atari themed cakes were awesome . Oh.... and most importantly... pretty damn tasty too . Amongst the new people I met was Der Luchs, who also got to listen to one of his Inty tracker compositions on real PAL hardware for the first time. I also got to check out his unconventional Atari 2600 and Lynx projects. Roll on next year! 12 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
