Jeffrey Johnson is one of many who felt the Jaguar video game console could do much more than the original equipment manufacturer Atari was able to accomplish in the mid-90s. He will discuss this topic and homebrew development in general at the upcoming Carolina Games Summit on Saturday, Feb 2nd. In addition, his company, Wave 1 Games, will also be exhibiting the console, allowing players a hands-on look at the Jaguar and their new releases on the platform.

Like the Dreamcast console for Sega, the Jaguar represents the final console Atari was able to produce before exiting the market entirely. Luckily for fans of both consoles, the homebrew community could not be stronger for these systems. From programming and box art creation to the cartridge production these die-hard fans and their companies go the extra distance to produce high-quality work that in many cases exceed what large companies and large budgets could do during the consoles release cycle.

“Atari Jaguar is one of those consoles that was misunderstood in its day and 25+ years later is just now starting to reach its full potential,” said Michael Everett, Creative Director, Carolina Games Summit. “We are excited to have Jeffrey Johnson discuss how he is pushing the console to new heights long after the intended development cycle has ended.”

“As long as fans still support the Jaguar Wave 1 Games will be on the prowl delivering new and exciting games!” said Jeffrey Johnson, Owner Wave 1 Games, “We are excited to showcase our homebrew titles and the Jaguar console at the Carolina Games Summit”

Tickets are available to the public and may be purchased online or at the door.
