Featured Comment davpa Posted December 5, 2022 Featured Comment Share Posted December 5, 2022 Hey everyone! It has been a hot minute since I was lurking in the forums. Last time I was chatting (6-ish months ago?) I said I was working closely with Atari on a project or two. Well, that got a little closer as I now work for Atari. I am working on the Marketing and Development of the Atari VCS for the last 3 months. What does this mean? Well, I'm actively talking and arranging new Developers to put their games on the VCS, supporting current Developers with their current and new games being developed, and generally answering questions when I can. I lead a team of QA testers for games in the VCS (which I have dubbed Team Gremlin), I just wish I was on that job before Tempest 4000 released. I'm also the head mod at the VCS Discord. So in an effort to be as transparent as possible, these are the places you can find and get a hold of me: AtariAge...duh. I'll be honest, I'm not frequent here so this is not the best place to get a hold of me if you need something urgently. I'll do better in being a presence. Discord. I am the main Moderator over in the Official VCS Discord (https://discord.gg/atarivcs) and I'm @davpa#8687. I occupy this space the most as it is part of my job. Even before that I was in it all the time. Email. Yeah, emails still exist and I still use it. If you want to email me with anything more official, like you have a game you'd be interesting in having on the VCS, email me at email@example.com I ask kindly not to troll me there, please. Facebook. I'm popping in on the Atari VCS Supporters, Backers, Developers, and enthusiasts group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2513120825651652/) to update on news as much as I can. I tend not to use Facebook anymore so I don't visit this section as much as I should, probably, but I'm there. Ok, so there we go. Now you have a face to blame when the VCS doesn't get your morning slippers for you or solves the World Peace problem. I'll also do my best to visit here more regularly from now on with info I get and share it with everyone. Sometimes things are in development so I have to see how something is going to pan out or need more information, so I usually wait to provide facts rather than just knee-jerk speculation or make believe thoughts. I think we had a few years too many of that kind of action on these forms that I don't want to follow that example. Most of all, I'm interesting in your opinions, negative or positive. All I ask is that you be civil with negative opinions. We can learn from our mistakes and what we can do better, but those learning opportunities are missed when it is presented with hostility. I'm not the guy that gave you a wedgey in the 2nd grade or the guy that cut you off in traffic, so don't treat me that way. Allow me the opportunity to find my own unique way to piss you off so you can hate me, that is all I ask! 7 7 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
