First things first – Happy 100th post! Woot! I can’t believe that I’ve already done a hundred of these suckers. Pretty rad if I do say so myself.
Alright, now that that is out of the way – here is a cool video of David Crane speaking from GDC 2011 about a little game he made called PITFALL. During Q&A at the end, he mentions an Atari emulator and development tool called Stella. Feel free to take this as a sign that you should go and develop NEW games for the Atari 2600.
(And feel free to take a look at Stella here)
