WELCOME TO HAL'S PIZZA!
Intellivision Productions, Crave Entertainment, and Realtime Associates have teamed up to bring Intellivision to the Sony PlayStation 2 and Microsoft Xbox consoles.
Intellivision Lives! drops the player into Hal's Pizza, a 360 degree 3-D environment. Seven arcade machines of different themes - Space, Sports, Battle, etc. - ring the restaurant. Each machine serves as an interface to the original Intellivision games, plus other exciting features. Over 60 of the classic games can be played, plus a number of games that were never released back in the '80s. The restaurant also features a jukebox that plays Intellivision-themed music.
"This takes what we've been doing with the Intellivision games to a whole new level," says Keith Robinson, president of Intellivision Productions, Inc. "We've always tried to put them in the context of when they were released - it adds that extra nostalgic boost to the experience. In our PC and Mac collections, we've done that with video clips and music and the overall design of the graphics. But now we can actually put you into an animated 3-D world that captures the feeling of 1982. It is 1982! The first time I scrolled around Hal's I started laughing. Pizza and video games. Yeah, I could live here."
Both versions were developed by Realtime Associates, the software firm founded by Blue Sky Ranger David Warhol. Realtime produced all the original Intellivision games published by INTV Corp. in the mid- to late-1980s. Intellivision Productions co-founders Robinson and Stephen Roney have been involved in each stage of development to ensure that the design and the game emulation are faithful to the original system.
Crave Entertainment is releasing the games in the United States and Canada.
