Family Fun Reimagined

The Intellivision Amico is a reimagined version of the classic Intellivision console albeit with modern technology.

The original Intellivision came with analog controllers and came in a box-like shape. The Amico comes in a sleek modern design and the controllers are wireless and use touchscreen technology. The Amico also has RFID, motion controls, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The goal of the Amico is to bring the family together again through fun and simple games that your mom and dad, grandma and grandpa and aunt and uncle can enjoy.

Simple Affordable Family Entertainment

Simple - The Amico has casual games for the casual gamer. These games are simple enough to pick up and play. Even without an instruction manual or a tutorial anyone from your mom and dad, grandma and grandpa and aunt and uncle can participate.

Imagine playing Skiing with your mom, Astrosmash with your dad or Major League Baseball with your brother.

Anyone of all ages and skill levels can play on the Amico.

Affordable - At launch, digital downloadable games will cost no more than $9.99. That costs less than the price of a movie ticket or is just the cost of two cups of coffee at Starbucks. Going to the movies for a family of 4 will cost between $100-$150 if you include the cost of tickets, snacks and drinks. The cost of an
afternoon of fun on the Amico is just $9.99 or less.

The price of a game is just the price of 2-3 McDonald's Happy Meals. While the Happy Meal may make your kid happy for half an hour, the game you buy for your Amico will provide endless hours of enjoyment and can be replayed over and over again.

For the small price of $9.99 or less, you can spend quality time with your family, relatives and friends.

Family - Tommy Tallarico was nothing but a kid playing the Intellivision with his mom and dad and with his siblings Mike and Karen. Everytime he would get interviewed, he would fondly recall those times and would then be sad as he can no longer play anything recent with his parents as new games are so complex and intimidating.

Tommy aims to make gaming great again and make the Amico the centerpiece of your living room where the whole family can bond and have a good time together.

Tommy comes from an Italian lineage and Italians are very family oriented.

Thus all games are free from bad language, graphic violence/blood or sexual content.

Entertainment - The Amico aims to provide endless hours of entertainment by utilizing Intellivisions vast library of games and properties as well as some new properties. Whether you are a sports fan, a racing enthusiast or platformer lover, there is something for everyone.
