BennVenn was able to return to his property with the Australian bush fire risk lowered. From BennVenn - Our GameGear and Lynx LCD kits have been sitting in storage since late last year, we'll get them out and begin testing and adding to the store. We still need to finish up the 3d frame for the GameGear before we can list them.
If you haven't heard, Australia has a serious bush fire situation right now and this is directly impacting BennVenn. This is what BV had to say... Apologies if we don't get to your messages. We expect to be away for some time, until the fire has moved through. We're just hoping the farm, house and office is still here after it passes through!. With luck BV will be back in business and without any damage to their property. Lets hope for some much needed rain.
If you've been following the Atari Lynx homebrew scene, you'd be aware of the in-development game called Captain Harlynx. It's a space shooter in an iconic anime art style reminiscent of many Japanese games. In time for Christmas, there is a new preview video that shows of some new animations and what appears to be the beginning of in-game cut scenes. It looks quite a lot more playable now, very cool! Watch the video here.
