The Sega Mega Drive – or Genesis, if you’re of the North American persuasion – may be a vintage system in the eyes of modern players but that doesn’t mean it can’t get new software.
With that in mind, say hello to Tanglewood, a new action-platformer which is currently in development for Sega’s legendary 16-bit console.
Described as a mix between Another World, Flashback, Sonic the Hedgehog, LIMBO, Ori and the Blind Forest, Abe’s Oddysee and Heart of Darkness (phew), Tanglewood is being developed using the original tools Sega supplied to devs back in the day. It will launch on a multi-region cartridge which will be playable on any Mega Drive / Genesis console, and is also coming to PC and Mac.
Developer Big Evil Corporation is seeking £48,000 to create the game, and has raised almost £8,000 at the time of writing. A demo – which can be downloaded to a Mega Drive flash cartridge – is available now.
