New Video of NAGOYA ATTACKJuly 8, 2013
Some more video of NAGOYA ATTACK, a new vectrex game by Chris Malcolm:
"A beta version of one of a few Vectrex games I'm working on at the moment. Feedback appreicated. It's a little rough around the edges at the mo and could do with optimisation and some balancing of the levels but it should be playable enough. Single life survival game inspired by Taitos Minivader tester board."
The Macintosh 1984 case design rumor has an end!June 18, 2013
Dear Vectrex Friends,
there was this rumor around that the Macintosh 1984 case design was inspired by the 1982 Vectrex case design concept. I contacted the Macintosh 1984 case designer Jerry C. Manock and asked him this simple question, (followed by is his answer):
Was the design of the Macintosh 1984 inspired by the Vectrex 1982 in any way ?
Absolutely and emphatically NO!
I have no knowledge of the 1982 Vectrex and have never seen one.

3D printable Cartridge Cases
How long have we waited for this? Get your hands on a 3D Printer and print out the cartridge case! Posted by Computer Nerd Kev at groups.google.com
"I just put online a project I've been playing with for some time. It's a Vectrex cartridge printable using one of those new fangled 3D printer things everyone's talking about. The details are mostly on that page. With a bit of luck this might help a small few of the people suffering from the lack of new cartridge cases being made.
I'm contemplating selling small quantities as well, so feel free to show your interest. Postage will be from Australia, I'll have to think about the pricing, might post back."
Here's the link to the 3D case:
