2018 was a really great year for vectrex gamers!
What can we look forward to in 2019?
Frontier (by Chris Parsons) Nimbus (by Sascha Luchs) Vectorbalde (by Malban) Bloxorx (by Frank Buss) Wireout (by Ben Razmataz) Canyon Run (by Zack Castille) Maximum Overdrive aka Tranz Alba (by James G Watt) 3D Terror Tube (by James G Watt) 3D Imager Game + eventually 2D version
Pollinator (by James G Watt)
SpideX (by Phoboz) Vecfever Battle Zone emulation (and Vecfever mass release ?!?! by Thomas Sontowski) Hera Primera (by peiselulli) Vec Fu aka Oolong (by Michael Borrmann) The Count (by Peer Johannsen) Ski Sunday (by Chris Binarystar) Buzzard Bait (by Chris Binarystar)
If everything goes according to plan then there will be the next installment of my Vectrex programming course at Pforzheim University. It is scheduled to start by midst of March. I will create a new thread for this as soon as things get under way.
Then there is my still unfinished long term project "The Count" which I hope to finish in the near future. And I have two more very early works in progress, "something I wanted to try - A" and "something I wanted to try – B". Too early to say if those will turn into games or what type of games that could be.

Peselulli said about Hera Primera: "there are still many levels missing, cover picture, new (not stolen) music etc." He responded recent to my post about the progress: "slower than expected, but it keeps going"
Michael Borrmann added a 2 player mode to VecFu and changed the working title to Oolong. "there is really not that much that needs to be done for the game" he wants to finish a game for another system first, so we can hope to see a final version in the near future
edit: got response on the comments page: "The game comes in a (3D printed) full size Vectrex cartridge shell, so no bare PCB. However, there is no surrounding cardboard box as the original games had. So it’s just like a loose cartridge."
