Trailer #1 (HD 2K)




      - 06/20/2019 - Trailer #1 video was posted to YouTube and Facebook.


      - 06/09/2019 - SlifkerGames was at the "Ongaku Orlando Overdrive IV (2019)" yesterday.  We showed off "Jungles of Maxtheria" and "Ja-Ja-Jiggy Jigsaw Puzzles: Irata".  This was the worldwide launch showing of "Ja-ja-Jiggy Jigsaw Puzzles: Irata" for the first time so I choose to play the two best Atari 2600 games:  "  "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" and "Pac-Man".  I asked people what they wanted to play and "Ms. Pac-Man" was the most requested game.  This was a day long event with a room that had musicians on-stage with a dance floor full of people and another room of indie video game developers.  I got to meet a number of people who were more than willing to play the games but also give ideas of how to better them.  Good times.

- 06/01/2019 - SlifkerGames has finished developing "Ja-Ja-Jiggy Jigsaw Puzzles: Irata" a while ago.  There are 400 puzzles (200 puzzles at 2 different sizes) with everything Atari.  The games has been beta tested and the bugs fixed.  This uses the Ja-Ja-Jiggy Jigsaw Puzzles game engine that we developed so we knew it'd be good.  We are holding off on the release right now.  We have reached out to Atari.  Although the pictures falls under "Fair Use", we would prefer working with them on this.  I can see releasing this on a stores such as Steam (Windows, Mac, Linux) or Play Store (Android).  It could even be used as a pack-in for the VCS which has a release date of late 2019.  Who knows?  This is such a great marketing opportunity for Atari that I can't imagine them not wanting this released.

      What needs to be done?  1) Work out a partnership with Atari, 2) Decide which systems/games/screenshots/print material will be used, 3) Take new screenshots and 4) Replace the current puzzles with new ones.  The screenshots and puzzles now are meant as placeholders.  When the time comes, we will replace them which is an easy thing to do.  It's really not much.  The big part is loading up the systems, playing the games and taking good screenshots.
