Have you ever wondered what it would be like to plunge into the dark world of LIMBO relying only on your instincts and reliable joystick in your hand? We do… Got shivers already?
Those were the days when finishing a game required both intellectual and physical effort. This inevitably took a toll on your energy reserves which needed to be replenished. Let’s not make the break from your favourite game too long – here’s a quick, filling dish that will make your mouth water: a retro-cutlet!
Joy your meal!
In its continuing journey, the joystick has sailed to Ms Mad Lemon – watch how she tricked the ghosts in Pac-Mania and how UNITHOR fared in Sensible Soccer against arcade sticks.
While rubber pads actually do their job, in response to your questions we’ve modified UNITHOR’s base so that it’s also possible to install classic suction cups. The cups will be an option of the Assembler version (or a separate DIY kit for either version originally equipped with the pads).
So, now it’s what we call immersive gameplay! UNI-joy has joined forces with Machinery Software – the creator of upjumping Amiga game that you might have already heard of. 🙂
Yes, it’s an Amiga 1200 of silicon and copper controlling LEDs and force feedback motor in UNITHOR Assembler version. That’s one small “Kick back” for man, one giant “Flash back” for retrohood 😀
WE BRING THE JOY!
The time has come to show you some action! Hereby we’re starting a gameplay series featuring UNITHOR joystick on our YouTube channel.
Today we kick off with Turrican 2, so 2 independent buttons will fire the first shots. Now we know what we have missed! Please like, subscribe and tell us what gameplay you would like to see next time.
On 28 of December 2021 we had our first interview! We hope that despite some jitters it was interesting to hear about the UNITHOR project. For everyone who missed it – you’re welcome to visit AtariOnline PL YouTube channel and their website. You will be able to learn more details about the progress of our joystick, see it in action and listen to some tasty oldschool stories of UNI-joy team.
Merry Christmas! We wish you better presents than this next year! 🙂
