I've followed Jeremy Parish's work for awhile, he just started a new series of videos focused on Virtual Boy today!

His NES Works series is what pulled me in, all of his videos are great.

I know a lot of you have waited patiently for years, and the day has finally come. I'm re-issuing the Dimension 3 shirt that was previously a limited edition (only 50).

This new shirt is not limited, I will keep it available for sale as long as there's interest. I'm using a print on demand service so I can offer a lot more sizes. Standard shirt: XS - 3XL. Premium shirt: S - 2XL.

https://zeropage.co/shop.html#dimension-3


I'm releasing a new design too! (I've been sitting on this since the original D3 shirt release) Red & Black.
Also available in Standard shirt: XS - 3XL. Premium shirt: S - 2XL.


I've ordered multiple of these myself to check quality and color, and they are really nice! Note, the reds can appear pink-ish under certain light because of the printing tech used, but overall I like the way they turned out.


My online shop is powered by Shopify, one of the largest and safest platforms for ecommerce. Accepts modern payments like Apple Pay, Google Pay, Amazon, PayPal etc.

Thanks for all the nice feedback/comments!

Now that Rotostellar has been out for a few weeks the price is back to normal. If you got the game while it was free and want to support me, check out the shop.
https://rotostellar.com/shop.html
There's a $2 digital pack (no shipping), stickers, shirts and phone cases.

I'm also currently researching other platforms to release the game on.

That game would also look great as a port for the Vectrex, "Malban" from Germany converted the game "Release" for that console and it was and still is a huge hit within the community.

A Vectrex port would be awesome.
What forum/website would you consider the "main" Vectrex community?

I know of:
https://vectorgaming.proboards.com/board/20/vectrex
and
http://atariage.com/forums/forum/182-vectrex/


Also... I've watched quite a few of your YouTube videos over the years, thanks for those!

I've been working on Rotostellar for 2 years and it finally launched yesterday! (available worldwide except China and Hong Kong)

It's a vector style arcade game inspired by late 70s, early 80s arcade machines and home consoles (Vectrex). The game is 100% free, no ads, no in-app purchases. Available on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rotostellar/id1439042487

Website: https://rotostellar.com/

App Preview on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GW5oQAaGp7s


And here's a secret I haven't posted about anywhere else...
In survival mode, when you achieve a score of 32 you unlock the "VR95" color theme, inspired by my favorite system the Virtual Boy!

I got a PSVR :)

I'm genuinely surprised how immersive it can feel. I've avoided playing the Oculus (or other VR setups) at stores / conventions so that I could experience modern VR for the first time at home. Now that I have, I'd be interested in a serious PC setup but I think it's a little too expensive right now.

Favorite games so far:

- Superhypercube
- Thumper
- VR Worlds


Really interested in trying:

- Robinson: The Journey
- Rogue One: X-wing VR mission

@morintari - Oh nice! I actually don't have a flashboy yet, need to get one. No t-shirt plans for now.


@thunderstruck - Awesome! I've been really blessed to work on such a great project. I'm trying to finish up "mastering" the music for individual album releases for each game.


We had a sweet game convention here in Oklahoma yesterday. I got to meet Mr. Nintendo World Champion himself, Thor Aackerlund!

Just wanted to say "hey I'm still alive and stuff".

It's been awhile. I was super busy with a game development project last year and took a break from playing games or collecting. Hoping to get back into it soon.

I think I literally need 1 cart and 4-5 boxes to complete my full US VB set.
I'll have to look at all my dupes... maybe someone wants to do some trading?

Anyway, what's new? Any big things I've missed in the past few months?

-Matt

Yes I unzipped them. None of the homebrews seem to work. (I haven't tried them all) I did just try 3D Battlesnake and Ballface. Got the same error.

Official games work fine. And even Bound High runs (although it's a little fast).
