+nanochess Posted August 23, 2022 Share Posted August 23, 2022 Hi all. It is a great pleasure for me to announce my upcoming book Programming Games for Atari 2600, composed of 320 pages of self-contained 6507 assembly language programming. Following on the tracks of my previous books Programming Boot Sector Games and Programming Games for Intellivision. The process of creating a book requires help! And three good friends are helping me there. @Thomas Jentzsch and @Andrew Davie are doing the technical revision of the book (you can remember Thomas from amazing games like Thrust, Boulder Dash, and our teamwork on Aardvark along with Nathan Strum; and Andrew from Qb and his amazing tutorials), and Michael Hayes @Zendocon is in charge of proofreading (he has done some amazing feats on Intellivision). Finally, I feel pretty honored that we have a foreword by the legend himself David Crane (creator of the Pitfall!™ games!) Everything is looking great. We are pretty close to completing this project, and order some demo copies of the book for approval. I'll post as things develop. Meanwhile, enjoy this preview of the cover 😉 Edit: Aug/29/2022 And now added the back cover 😀 Edit 2: Sep/21/2022 Andrew Davie is now helping with technical correction. Edit 3: Nov/11/2022 Now available for ordering! Edit 4: Nov/12/2022 I've made a video showing the book, and the same afternoon I was talking about it with my friend Artemio Urbina in Spanish in another video.
