Less than a month ago an unfinished version of Jeff Minter's Attack of the Mutant Camels for the unreleased Konix Multisystem was found and preserved. Since then fans of the fabled system have been hard at work to create an emulator for the long lost system - one which has been completed and made available to download for free.
Although the Konix Multisystem was due for release in 1990, it has taken twenty two years before anyone was able to actually sample what the console could do. To think we finally have everything we need to play on an unreleased console is nothing short of mind boggling. All we need now is the fan creation of the various bundled accessories and controllers that were set to be part of the console to play the emulator with.
The new emulator titled Slipstream, a codename for the console whilst in development, is currently compatible with the ROM of Jeff Minter's Attack of the Mutant Camels. Several other ROMs are included within a downloadable pack alongside Attack of the Mutant Camels, however, these are purely technical demos to showcase the power behind the system. All we need now are other developers like Jeff Minter to step forward with their unfinished Konix Multisystem titles to bring more of a selection over to the Slipstream emulator.
So should you feel like you missed out all those years ago, head on over to the Konix Multisystem fan page and get downloading. Full instructions on everything you need to do to get gaming can be found there.
