Status of Current Orders and Projects
To all reading this, my regular job and life outside of Packrat is making it harder to get orders done (for now). Packrat is, and most likely will always be a one man company, with these exceptions - the game programmers, the 'box guy', and a few others.
When an order is placed, you will receive a confirmation e-mail, but it may not be right away. I do not have an automated e-mail system in place, so please be patient.
When your order is ready, you wil get a PayPal invoice (these tend to go to the Junk e-mail folder, so watch for them). You will also get a notification email from PayPal when the order ships too.
- Regular Current Orders (not O2/VP multi-cart)
- C7061 and 233-in-1 O2/VP Multi Orders
- Splorf orders
Current Update - September 20, 2020
With a continued influx of Vectrex game orders, and various upcoming projects being worked on, there are delays with most orders. This will depend on what you are ordering. Note that most games are made on-demand, as I really can't afford or have the space for any major inventory.
If you need a rush on a particular order, please make note of such in the comment field when ordering. I will try my best on special orders.
O2/VP Multi-cart Orders

Orders for the 233 Multi-cart and / or the new C7061. Both items are being made at this time. Emails are going out to those on my backlog list, slowly but surely. Check SPAM folders, as I only wait two weeks after sending out an email, then move on to the next group of orders.

- RAM-Pong for 2600 - Status = On Hold- This was going to be released at MGC 2020, but that didn't happen. Possible late 2020 release, or MGC 2021. Not decided yet.

- Larry The Lemon for 2600 - Status = On Hold- Game is almost done (a final tweak needs to be done to the code - no idea when this will happen). Box packaging is done and in stock, manual needs to be created.
- Mail Plane - Status = In Limbo - Was going to get permission from original boxed version to use manual. That cannot happen now - need to find copies of such, and reconstruct manual.

- Vectorblade -Status = In Progress - A future unlimited release. Will include box and overlay. Will happen, given time.
