Balls I hear you cry – Gameboy was out before Lynx, right? Wrong! Way back in 1986 the original concept for the Lynx, then called Handy Game, was in development by a company called Epyx . This prototype was shown at the Winter CES in January of 1989 by a financially struggling Epyx. Luckily Atari happened to be wandering the show floor with a pocket full of cash and decided to partner up with Epyx to produce the hardware side whilst Epyx concentrated on the software side.
