A very exciting update (and the 2nd one I didn’t on Wednesday!) – TANGLEWOOD has gone GOLD!
as before and to recap to anyone new who hasn’t heard of the game that won this years ‘Indie game of the show’ aware from the Retro Revival event, TANGLEWOOD is a brand new and original game for the SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis, to be released on cartridge following its successful Kickstarter campaign. A true 16-bit, nostalgic platforming experience running on genuine SEGA hardware, that will make fans of SEGA’s golden era feel warm and fuzzy.
Set in a fictional world, the game follows a young creature, Nymn, who is separated from the family pack after the sun sets. Unable to get back to the safety of the 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, and Nymn must use skills of evasion, special abilities, traps and trickery to defeat predators.
TANGLEWOOD is programmed in pure 68000 assembly language, using original SEGA development tools and processes from the 1990s.
If you love your Megadrive it’s still not too late to nab yourself a copy! and I fully recommend you do! After playing at Revival myself and downloading the demo copy current on their site here it’s rapidely become my must have for this year!
A full review will be given once the retail version releases, and I’m hoping the guys have left room to keep a few old secrets and cheats in to give that 90s nostalgia alive.
But most importantly…
