Today is a very good day, and not only because it´s Friday and soon Halloween. No, I´m also talking about the fact that Jag Corner has dropped a brand-new  homebrew Atari Jaguar game called “Flappy McFur“:

“You may think that this is just another Flappy Bird clone, and well, you may be right. Regardless, the already well-known format has been expanded by BitJag into four different play modes, offering players more replayability. Also, a set of 15 awards are ready to be unlocked. With just a sprinkle of a story added, Flappy McFur is an addicting experience that you will can only find on the Atari Jaguar.” – Jag Corner

So that´s some really great news if you just happen to like Flappy Bird and own an Atari Jaguar console, and in case you wonder why the Flappy McFur Jag cartridge is rather expensive, this is the reason why:

“Retail cost will always be more than base production cost. also, we are trying to follow the current pricing trend with Atari Jaguar homebrew releases. The price range for new Jag cartridge games is somewhere between $40 – $90. One of the reasons for this is because of the actual buying audience for Jag games which is somewhere between 200 – 400. Because of the small audience, even if we were releasing a game every few months, it wouldn’t be enough to make a living for one person, let alone 2 people after production costs even if you were selling at $90 a pop.

The audience size is also why there is a large price difference between Jag homebrew and homebrew for more popular systems like NES SNES Genesis. I guess our goal should be attracting more people to the Jaguar club, get more people making and buying games, which in turn increases competition, which in turn would help to drive the average price down. Having more people playing and making games for the Jaguar is something we hope for, but we understand the reality of current numbers that drive things like pricing.” –  Jag Corner

So, what do you think about Flappy McFur? And will you buy the game? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!

Press release:
Salt Lake City, UT. October 19,2016. BitJag has released their first homebrew title for the Atari Jaguar, Flappy McFur. Flappy McFur is a cartridge game featuring arcade runner gameplay with characters and references to the Jaguar “Universe” that anyone familiar with the console would enjoy. For those who do not have nostalgia for theJaguar, the game was developed with polished art and gameplay in mind, making it attractive for a larger audience as well.

Flappy Mcfur was developed by two brothers who have a deep enthusiasm for retro gaming, particularly the Atari Jaguar. With limited experience programing for the Jaguar console, this was only possible through other dedicated developers providing tools and other resources to make games for the Atari Jaguar. This includes Reboot, Matthias Domin, The Removers, and many others.

The ability to order is now open to the public, and shipping will begin in November and will be done in batches during the following months. BitJag plans on doing 2 ­ 3 batches depending on interest. Individuals can order at http://bitjag.com. The first package includes the game cartridge itself, with box, manual, and business card size art print featuring art used to promote the game. The second package is a collector’s bundle that includes the items of the first package, and also includes three 8.5” x 11” high quality art prints. These three art prints feature art that was used to promote the game, and will also include the artist’s handwritten signature.

BitJag hopes that Flappy McFur will be the first of many games they wish to release for the now 23-year-old console.
