News & Updates from Intellivision



This is Phil Adam, CEO of Intellivision. I had deliberate to reply sooner with the corporate standing, however the workforce has been working by some manufacturing pipeline bugs which have delayed this replace. As I’ve said beforehand, updates from myself can be made when materials information can be found and related. That being mentioned, listed below are just a few updates.

1. One of the first targets for the small pilot run was to uncover any points within the manufacturing pipeline earlier than beginning a bigger manufacturing run. Fortunately, we did catch one important downside. Diagnosing this difficulty and implementing an answer was a major effort and brought on a delay. The signs pointed to a bug within the controller firmware, however that was not the case. The downside was an order-of-operations difficulty when provisioning the console on the manufacturing line with its distinctive identifiers and safety keys. The error manifested on the subsequent reboot in a approach that seemed like a controller bug. With that resolved, the trail is obvious to complete the pilot run within the subsequent few weeks.

2. We signed a licensing take care of BBG Entertainment GmbH, the small print of which can be introduced later. Here is a quote from Stephan Berendsen, Managing Director:

“We are very pleased to have licensed four Amico games and the original game versions from Intellivision. For the past three years we have been working with Intellivision on the development of our games DYNABLASTER and BRAINDUEL for Amico. We are excited about Amico and hope that customers will be as well. We are looking forward to offering the four licensed Amico games and original Intellivision versions on other platforms soon.”

3. We have one other partnership deal that may make sure that 2 of our most anticipated IPs can be out there throughout a number of platforms in addition to Amico. The particulars of that relationship can be introduced at a later time. The goal for these IPs is concurrently (or later) with the Amico launch.

Given that we’ll have a restricted variety of Amico items initially, these partnerships will get the video games into extra arms who’ve been ready to play whereas serving to get the phrase out to a bigger viewers. As said above, we’re doing the whole lot we will to guarantee that we now have a secure system earlier than beginning manufacturing. That is a key milestone in shifting ahead.

I wish to thanks once more in your assist, and thanks to our inside workforce and exterior builders that work tirelessly to create a household gaming expertise on Amico that brings folks of various ages and abilities collectively in group play.

Phil Adam, CEO
