"Working" is too ambitious a term.  I have three back-burner projects,
but none seem likely to get much attention in the next few months.  My
day job keeps me pretty busy, and there are some non-Atari projects I
want to work on too.

#1 is an ad for Jason Brassard at Trade-N-Games; it's basically going to
 be a text cart like FotR, but with some cycling colors and an expanded
 character set.  This one I might actually do, since I sort of promised
 him I'd work on it.  I have a business trip coming up, and this is a
 good sit-in-my-hotel-room-and-code kinda project.
#2 is a socially thoroughly unredeeming idea I had in third grade and
 finally have the coding skills (I think) to execute.  It's called
 "Illegal Alien" and basically features the alien, trying to get across
 the screen and cross the border, and the border guard, who's trying to
 shoot him.  The gimmick is that Game Select will cycle through hues and
 brightnesses for both the alien and the guard, so that pretty much any
 race/ethnicity/nationality can be bigoted against any other.  Even if
 that means Mongolian border guards (sort of medium golden) trying to
 shoot Venusians (pale green).
#3 brings one of the most thrilling sports ever to the VCS for the first
 time: the heart-pounding excitement of Croquet.
