This is super nice!
Thanks for sharing!
Here are some hastily done covers and a cartridge sticker :)
Can't remember who made the templates but it either was someone at sega-16, spritesmind or segaage and all props goes to them.

Well, I can say that is done, it has all levels (60), enemies, music, samples ... all like the original Wolf3D of PC :) , but need to correct some things and also want to modify some parts of code to improve it.
The size of the rom is currently 2.15MB (less than I thought). I want to try to compress some things to see if there is a possibility that the game stays in 2MB, but if this is not possible then I could add Spear of Destiny in the same Rom to fill up to 3MB or more. :)

I'm incredibly curious too on the current status of the project. Still play the available demos every now and then, but honestly after the whole mess with some guy trying to sell his demo on ebay, I'd take a 2 or 3 year break from the project too and consider an official or semi-official release before releasing more demos.

Plus didn't gasega68k improve his engine yet again? It takes time to implement and expand all that I guess. :D Especially if he now has less free time.
One way or another I'm sure he'll let us know when he's ready to let us know. This is definitely one of the most technically impressive new homebrew games on the Mega Drive\Genesis, and he knows it too. :)

Can anybody explain the method this game uses for drawing columns?

I'm working on a demo that draws columns but I would like to rotate my buffer in software from row to column order (to allow fast drawing of vertical columns by writing multiple pixels at once), and I had the idea that this demo achieves this same optimization via DMA tricks combined with how the VDP planes are set up.

The rotation would completely negate any advantage, not to mention that the scaling would already prevent you from manipulating multiple pixels at once like that.

If you want a suggestion, arrange the tiles in the same order as for sprites (i.e. first vertical then horizontal). This will guarantee that any two consecutive pixels within a column will be 4 bytes apart. You can definitely find some good optimization for that.
Sik is pronounced as "seek", not as "sick".

Yeah, that's what I meant. Not real-time rotation, but using a column-major (vertical first) array rather than row order.
