New Owner of Packrat Video Games

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

As of today, I am the new owner of Packrat Video Games, a nice small company that produces homebrew games for the Atari 2600 and the Odyssey2. This was in the works for a few months, and finally came through as of today. It’ll be a month or so before ownership is completely transferred. I look forward to the opportunity to continue the tradition of Packrat making quality games for retro systems. This also means there is a good chance I may decide to be a sponsor for the MGC 2013 show in some capacity, as a way to promote Packrat, and the first game to be released under my ownership of the company (plans are already underway to get a game done by the show in March – hopefully).

I feel good about this, I won’t deny. I love the old Odyssey2, and am somewhat excited about producing games for it! 🙂
