Tanglewood - now on Kickstarter!

Post by BigEvilCorporation » Sun Nov 13, 2016 4:34 pm

Hello lovely homebrew community!

As you may already know, since starting my journey learning 68000 ASM and collecting dev hardware, I've been working on Tanglewood - a dark 2D platformer-with-puzzles - and recently completed a major milestone and released a tech demo.

I'd like to see my game through to a AAA quality release at the end of next year, so I'm trying to set up a small team and take some time off work to give it the proper time and attention it needs to become a full-length SEGA Genesis title.

To fund it, I'm running a Kickstarter campaign, and I would be eternally grateful for some help sharing it around.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/63 ... -genesis-m

If all goes well, I'll be looking for some hires!

Cheers,
Matt

Beautiful game. Will you sell cartridges after crowdfunding?
I have no paypal etc...
And what sprite tool do you use? Looks like nice tool!

Thank you all for the support, it flew past 25% in its third day!

Yes, it will be on sale properly when it's finished.

All tiles, maps, sprites and animations are done using Beehive: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2259

Excellent news, Matt. I am glad that you stuck to it. Only sorry that we did not get you UMDK to use in good time.

Best of luck with it and I hope you reach the Kickstart Goal.

Cheers.

Thank you :)

I'm still interested in a UMDK the second someone starts manufacturing again! And hopefully if this thing goes to plan I'll need quite a few ;)

Excellent - that will help us get a batch sorted out. I think I counted 5 or so people who wanted them but how many do you want?
Let me know by mail please as it is easier for me to organise things.

The main issues we have had have been manufacturers and batch numbers. We had the last one who expected something like 50 units to be made - that was too many as I doubt there are 50 developers who are active within the entire MD dev scene :D

Cheers.

We hit 50%

I'll be doing a Reddit AMA tomorrow (Sunday 3rd) at 7pm GMT to try and drum up some more interest. Please do drop by if you can :)

Also I did an interview with Computerphile:
