Enjoy a sport that has been the pass-time of kings, hunters and warriors for 4000 years!

George Plimpton's Video Falconry was brought to our attention by the Judge John Hodgman podcast. Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

Tom, you've done it again :D

Wow! The video advert was circling around various sites with people buying that it was real! I like how you adapted the negrounds logo as well, It makes it really convincing. The fact that you've gone to the effort to create this back story and video on youtube to endorce it is really creative, and a 10 and 5 to the game :P
