Game Catcher! - PC



I originally thought of the idea for this game after I had just bought a new video game from the mall one day. I thought it would be funny to make a game about trying to collect more games before picky customers nab all of them from you. It's very frusterating when you go out to get a brand new hot-selling game, only to find that they're out of stock, or there's a huge line of people.

This is the very first version of Game Catcher I ever made, way back in 2004 (I was 15). I never expected this game to be any more than a small side thing. But as it turns out, I've ported it to the Atari 2600 and the OUYA!

This version of Game Catcher is actually not very complete, and it's MUCH more difficult than the version I recently made for the OUYA. As you could see, there's actually an option for 80's Mode at the titlescreen, but it doesn't work. That means I had already come up with the 80's Mode concept-- I just never got around to making it until 9 years later with the OUYA version. Isn't that amazing when that happens?
