This is off-topic, but you may be interested to know that there is a thriving Intellivision a enthusiast community over at AtariAge, where some of us are trying to keep the console alive, playing the old games and making new ones.
P.S. That reminds me that Mr. Keith Robinson, the current owner of the Intellivision Productions, Inc. properties and original Mattel Blue Sky Ranger from the 1980s, passed away this week. May he rest in peace.
I actually wanted to mention this already on the non Lucas Arts Adventure games thread but have always been hesitant because it´s not really an adventure game but Exile has always been near and dear to my heart. From it´s ridiciously realistic physics, to it´s dark atmosphere, the sounds and colorscheme of the C64 and it´s early Metroidvania like gameplay (with a setting undoubtly inspired by that 1986 Nintendo hit set in the depths of a dark planet). Unfortunatly I never got really far and not even anyone on youtube could be bothered to play the C64 version to the end. Very underrated fun but really difficult game.
And I posted it here because I like the cover art that also reminds me a bit of a poster from an italian horror movie.
That’s not a surprise to me.
Believe it or not, I actually thought about this particular Star Wars poster when I was writing my comment above. It’s also one of the best cover arts I’ve ever seen. If it was a game instead of a movie, I had listet this poster as well.
By the way, I love such over-dramatized kitschy portrayals! It’s an element that Steve Purcell seems to have copied, too.
