Rikki & Vikki


Recommended Posts

Wow! is this real? and why have I not heard of it before. Very much ready to reserve one.

Unless the pile of cartridges in my living room isn't actually there, and I don't actually exist - there is a high probability the game is real.

You probably didn't hear about it since it wasn't announced until now!


Wow, this game loot amazing! I can't wait to get this. Are orders going to be handled on the PenguiNet website when the game becomes available for order on January 14, 2019?

Thanks, and yep - usual "click to dispense video game" PayPal button.


That looks really good! Could we get a 7800 trailer also?

All footage of the game in the trailer above was recorded from an Atari 7800, so it already is.

Q : Will a standalone ROM Binary be available for purchase?

A : No, Rikki & Vikki's cartridge uses custom hardware which (along with the Microsoft Windows version) makes this mostly irrelevant. However, we will release a standalone version of the emulator core used for developing and distributing the game - along with specifications of its mapper and expansion audio - on the same day as the Atari 7800 version.


Could you elaborate on this? An area of interest to me. :)

(wish there was a boxless version for a few less shekels tho...nonetheless!)

For even less shekels than that you can go for the Windows version, we're working on bringing it to Humblebundle now in case you're not into Steam.

Sure, it's just a new mapper design. The only "big thing" compared to the existing schemes is the ability to differentiate between Sally and Maria fetches which lets both of them use different banking arrangements.



While we wait for his reply, some reading... he's posted a lot of details here, and the equates give a pretty good overview of his scheme.

Uh oh, that wasn't supposed to be public yet!

But since you caught me - and it's the holidays, I'll make this page more easily accessible and formally release our emulator (BupSystem) in the next few hours.

Phenomenal presentation with a lot of TLC, TailChao. The website linked in the OP is chalk full of goodness for the game include screenshots and character bios.


Additionally, fantastic job on Zaku. It's posted Zaku for the Lynx was developed over a six years period.


There is evidently a considerable amount of software and hardware development towards the 7800 by the team as well. How much time went into the development of Rikki and Vikki?


Thank you for sharing the sound information details, including leveraging the design of the system as intended. Curious about the video portion too, if you feel comfortable sharing, what MARIA graphic mode(s) are utilized?

This game looks amazing. I have never seen such crisp and detailed graphics from an Atari 7800. Also the music and sound effects I am hearing on the Atari 7800 is blowing me away. Tell us more about this BupChip! Does this BupChip mean that we finally have a real viable alternative to the Pokey chip for the 7800?
