With the caveat that no one can say for sure about an unreleased platform, given that it supposedly runs Linux executables it's not outside the realm of possibilities that an Ubuntu exported game would run (Ubuntu is Debian based, and the Atari VCS is supposedly as well so in theory a good fit). But it would be foolish to assume it will work flawlessly and with all required features you may desire.ok, I just receive the newsletter to become a Atari VCS developer, but...will GMS2 support this console?
The problem is going to be about making GMS support Atari VCS(not the other way around). Are the gamepads going to work like generic Linux gamepads? Or are there some specific functions you will have to call to access them? Input isn't the only thing involved, but its a good chunk of it for sure.According to Atari, Atari VCS can support nearly all Linux programs. It should be able to support GameMaker.
Atari VCS’ PC Mode provides users with a completely open and customizable PC experience for the TV or desktop via almost any operating system software. Existing PC game libraries, retro emulation platforms and other capabilities are easily unlocked with the right know-how.
Develop your games using standard game development platforms like Unity and Linux, with additional development platform compatibility coming soon.
