The place have been you when the Atari Lynx got here out? I, for one, wasn’t born but. Nonetheless, I’m conscious of the Atari Corporation’s late Twentieth-century dominance. The primary coloration handheld, the Lynx, offered over 3 million copies and rivaled household-name merchandise like the unique Recreation Boy. However when the Atari Jaguar was subsequent in line to take the throne, the Lynx, with its spectacular graphics, was discontinued and ultimately light into relative obscurity. Till now, that’s. Two builders simply launched new video games for the traditional console, every full with its personal cartridge and case. 


In line with Engadget, Atari Lynx followers usually collect on AtariAge to share their experiences with the larger neighborhood, make amends for any excellent information, and even buy video games/merch. Solo programmer Frédéric Descharmes, also called Fadest, has been a longtime member of the location and a widely known creator. His puzzle compilation, Yastuna, was launched again in 2008 and garnered a sizeable following. His two newest initiatives, Raid on TriCity and Asteroid Chasers, are love letters to tile-matching, shoot-em-ups, and technique video games. You will get a greater take a look at the visuals and mechanics within the gallery above.


In an analogous vein, Songbird Productions’ founder, Carl Forhan, chosen two obscure titles – Cyber Virus – Lost Missions and the aptly titled Unnamed (verify these out within the gallery above) – to develop and publish respectively. “In CyberVirus, I had to redo all the missions,” Forhan advised Engadget.  “[I had to] redo the health and powerup system, and add new features to the game which were not in the original prototype.” However, Unnamed was created by Marcin Siwek with Songbird’s backing and is immediately impressed by journey video games and RPGs.

Positive, the Lynx may need been launched greater than 30 years in the past, however Atari stays related even at present. The VCS, a console/PC hybrid, launched over the summer season with over a dozen video games from varied indie builders.
