Had a brilliant weekend at the Revival Retro event in Walsall, UK ... loads of vectrex and non-Vectrex highlights and I thought I'd share the Vec stuff here. It's the second time I've shown Big Blue at Revival and I think this event could become the place to see new and obscure Vectrex games.
Set up first thing Saturday... made a topper to attract extra attention and was wearing Big Blue T-shirts both days.
5 vectrexes for people to play on... this was before Chris (Binarystar) and James G Watt turned up with their wares.

Apologies for orientation of photos... it seems arbitrary in imgbox and no rotating at my end seems to make a jot of difference... anyway...
Brilliant to meet games programming legend jim Bagley and get to check out his work in progress on Bomb Jack.
Stramash Zone in action although photo taken when not much was on screen
NOX being played
More Stramash Zone with a Death Chase overlay
Check out that controller! Created by Victor 'Marland, also of the 10 Pence Arcade podcast... not yet available and only 11 being made I believe.

Stramash Zone is coded only by Jim. Had a great time at the show. Lovely to meet you Chris, Richard, Vic and other folks on the scene. I was absolutely exhausted by the end of the day but it was worth the journey
