I was bored at work, so I went to a virtual boy site, and someone is trying to do a stereoscopic wolfenstein clone so as lovecraft said: "That is not dead which can eternal lie; over strange eons even death may die ..."craigix posted on Apr 8 2004 at 01:38 AM said:The amiga CD32 is just an amiga 1200, you could even plug in a keyboard and make it run amiga games (and run cd32 games on an amiga for that matter). So it isn't dead as there is plenty of amiga dev going on.
I'd go for the Virtuaboy as being dead Dead DEAD. Oh and some of the more obscure early 80's computers like the Jupiter Ace.
But I can't think of many more, even things like the Vic20 still have a demo scene.
Oh how about that DVD player game system (it was built into a handful of them)? I can't even remember its name, there was a kick ass version of tempest for it, that surely it is the most recent?
Although granted their is not much going on for virtualboy. Micromart in the UK covers new retro releases: like officially endorsed Sonic for the spectrum, and Worms for the C64, it's only a page a week+they have a (small) amiga section.
I'm hoping 'retro' magazine will start covering new developments on older platforms.
As for the CD32, granted unexpanded it can't run most recent stuff, but as Craig said, if you add the SX1 expansion, you could run a lot of new miggy stuff (Napalm RTS, quake etc).
