Back To Homebrews


Luc Miron was the former webmaster of Opcode Games' 3rd site.

Luc lives in Rue Mylène, Laval, Québec, Canada.

Luc is fantastic to draw graphics, and he do it for anyone who want to.
Luc's passion is closest to ColecoVision, which has dispaced Atari 2600 a little.

Luc had spent several years of good cooperation with Eduardo Mello who is the founder of Opcode Games.
What Luc mostly learned during in time with Opcode Games was more related to the effort involved in making boxes, manuals and cartridges.

Daniel Bienvenu, another programmer learned Luc some little programming for ColecoVision.
And I think this is Luc's goal that he will one day be able to program his own games.

Luc decided in 2009 that he would cooperate more broadly.
So he created a new publishing label and a website by the same name.
The name was Team Pixelboy and is simply a ColecoVision publishing label.

But Luc are certainly not alone, it is a kind of team with all around him involved:

Daniel Bienvenu, Sohei Kobayashi, James De Carlo, Dale Crum, Oliver Puschatzki, Harvey deKleine, Guy Foster,
Dan Ogrodnick, Omar Cornut, Bruce Tomlin, Daniel Vik, Vincent van Dam, Studio Cutepet, Chris Coles, Scott Huggins, Fred Quimby, Albert Yarusso,
Óscar Toledo Gutiérrez, Jacob Hawk, and Dan Hower.

And there are also several beta testers: Eduardo Mello, Troy Whelan, Stephen Seehorn, Michael Di Salvo, Todd Scheele and Jean-François Dupuis.
But many more people Luc knows, are also Beta testers.

On Team Pixelboy are all wishes and more to. And Luc has always several games ready for release.
You can buy games from him the whole year, but official releases are almost dated to December 25 each year.

Some of his first graphical work was checkers.
But he has also made other graphical game designs.
Checkers was never programmed for our ColecoVision System, nor even Crystal Castle.
But rumors says that Legend Of Zelda also will a part of an upcoming project based on the GameBoy version.
 

Legend Of Zelda...
Chess Crystal Castle Remember The Flag The Legend Of Zelda

The games above was never programmed, they only exist in graphics.

Luc made also overlays for the ColecoVision, and even his bet for a new design for a new joystick and a CV2 case.
 

CV2 Design Overlays Designs Joystick Design


Luc is very good at using Photoshop, here are 5 boxes selected among many, maybe mor3 than 80.
He is quite clever, and he has details with in it, -nice indeed.
Some of the boxes are produced by: Marc Oberhäuser and others by Oliver Puschatzki in Germany.

Many of the games above will have its release late in 2017.

Luc sells not only "normal" ColecoVision games as he always do.
Newest is ColecoVision Super Games.
For the settlement of these super games requires that you have invested in a Super Game Module or the new Super Game System from Opcode Games.

BasicVision.

Luc was starting slowly with his BasicVision for Coleco/ADAM.
BasicVision is a programming language designed specially for the ColecoVision console.
You can read more about BasicVision on his ColecoVision site.

Luc know very well his BasicVision will be a long-term project.
And with so many ColecoVision games that need to see the day of light, is the time for BasicVision to start up delayed to around 2018 or 2019.

Trading Cards.

Luc will also in the beginning of January 2014 try to make and launch Trading cards.
It will be a big project, he will produce trading cards with ColecoVision games and its hardware.
It has been tried before, Phil Boland has made this few years before.

Luc's goal is to produce a trading card for each and every box variant of every ColecoVision product ever released.
This amounts to a total of over 430 trading cards, and more will likely be added to the list as new homebrew games are released.
Luc will create the cards and sell them in 7 sets of 55 cards per time.
Release date is not yet announced, but 2019 could be a good bet.
