The things that caught our eye dur­ing the pro­duc­tion of E286

CON­SOLE

There can’t be many bolder ways to tempt fate than to style your new con­sole on Atari’s Jaguar. The in­fa­mous flop holds a cer­tain ca­chet, amassed from a brief wave of hype that washed up a Jeff Minter clas­sic and a de­cent ver­sion of Doom, but it’s hardly a poster child for com­mer­cial suc­cess. The team be­hind

the $349 Retro VGS con­sole hasn’t been de­terred by the project’s fail­ure to raise $1.95 mil­lion on Indiegogo, how­ever, and is press­ing ahead with the cre­ation of a work­ing pro­to­type and plans for an­other round of crowd­fund­ing. If you’re in the mar­ket for an ul­tra-spe­cial­ist sys­tem, a nos­tal­gia-driven cart­based con­sole at a PS4 price seems like it was made to or­der.

TWEETS

Noth­ing like find­ing a bunch of quotes at­trib­uted to me with the gen­der “he” on game sites. I must be a dude if I’m a de­signer, right?
