Intellivision Head Quarters
After two months of hard work, IntellivisionWorld is proud to announce the opening of Intellivision Head Quarters, the first and only web forum totally devoted to the Mattel machine!
IHQ is a free forum, targeting developers, collectors and anyone interested in serious retrogaming.
The born of this forum is due to a critical lack ness in the retro computing underground: several well known places are available for Atarians and generic collectors, but nowhere was a place specifically for Intellivision fans.
Visiting IHQ you’ll find all that you’re looking for and you can propose yourself new arguments and sections.
Let's talk about...
Several topics are already opened where you can:
- Sell and trade games, consoles and peripherals. All this without additional costs that you need to pay using web services like eBay!
- Direct communicate with IntellivisionWorld staff (Valter Prette and Pierluca Bianchi) to actively participate to the making of the web site with your ideas.
- Announce new products you’re working on that you want the community be aware of.
- Organize meetings, conventions, expos.
- Know collectors from over the sea.
- Expose your collection and compare to the other ones.
- Discuss about your preferred games and the good old times.
- Show your best records and register the to TwinGalaxies.
- Meet Intellivision developers.
IntyLab: the Intellivision development roundtable
Inside the forum you find a private section called IntyLab.
This one is the first worldwide roundtable for Intellivision developers!
IntyLab will produce PDF guides (called white papers), a database of programming hints and algorithms, a network of tech online help and most of all new roms and new soft dev kits: in one word, a real professional laboratory!
With much satisfaction, we were able to bring all together many of the protagonists of the software and hardware development for this console, and we let them seat and discuss about new projects! Who know what could come out from those brilliant minds!
