I woke up this morning to a very welcomed post from BIG EVIL CORPORATION about a Kickstarter Campaign for Tanglewood.
What is Tanglewood?
Tanglewood is a brand new and original game for the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive, to be released on cartridge in winter 2017.
Some time ago the web site for BIG EVIL CORPORATION was originally focused on tutorials, examples and tips on how to write code for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. Despite not knowing how to code myself I still enjoyed following along as best I could. What I got out of it was the fact that there are talented and interested people out in the world who know how to write games for old consoles and they were busy sharing their knowledge. Back then I had hoped that something like this might eventually happen.
Now, years later, Matt Phillips of BIG EVIL CORPORATION has an even larger foundation of skills and tools at his disposal and he’s ready to make Tanglewood a reality.
The Story so far…
“Set in the realm of Tanglewood, the game follows a young creature, Nymn, separated from the pack after the sun sets. Unable to get back to the safety of the family’s underground home, Nymn must find a way to survive the night terrors and get to morning. Tanglewood’s world is a dangerous one after dark; guiding Nymn you must use your skills of evasion, traps and trickery to defeat predators.”
“Tanglewood is a platforming game with puzzle elements, and can be described as a mix of the Mega Drive titles Another World and The Lion King.”
Visit the Kickstarter Campaign for Tanglewood for all the details. Hopefully you’ll be as excited about this release as I am and pledge for your own copy!
OMG! The Kickstarter was over but I pledged myself a copy on Megafunder XD YASSSS!!!!
Hey Heidi! It’s great to see you here again!
I’m really glad you found a way to get Tanglewood. It looks like it will be a good game for the Genesis.
