Box Art Wednesday Extra!

Kolchack the night stalker by RetroPeachy

Now how absolutely awesome would it have been to be able to play a Kolchak: The Night Stalker title on the Atari 2600? Well, thanks to the musical genius of Peachy we can now imagine what it would have been like.

I'm thinking it would have resembled something like the Dracula game by Intellivision but instead of playing the deadly Count you would trade the formal evening wear for a seersucker suit and straw hat to seek out the lair of Janos Skorzeny!

I'll leave you with Carl's own words about my personal dreams of a 2600 homebrew title, "Judge for yourself its believability, and then try to tell yourself, wherever you may be, it couldn't happen here."

If only we knew someone that was good at making homebrew games!

Um, if anyone reading this can do that...I'll give you one of my Radium Chimps. Promise!
