GTIABlast! is a game in progress and the demo clearly shows that the Atari 800 is a more capable system than some may believe. As I understand it, the name is a tribute the the chip that can still do amazing things in 2013 as it did 33.8 years ago. Created by by Paul Lay and Harvey Kong Tin for the Atari 400/800 series of computers, it looks like the sort of game that will initiate more interest in the old Atari computers.
95% of the code on the C64 is mine. Joe Vierra did the port in about a week. I like the Atari version because of the colors. I found the C64 always had a washed out screen.
I'm incredibly supportive of the the emulator scene. Without it, all of these games would disappear. Its the history of our industry. I believe that abandonware should be treasured and persevered. Imagine, if we lost all of the early science fiction stories.
