Upcoming Sega Mega Drive Platformer 'Tanglewood' Hits Kickstarter

Tanglewood-Mega-Drive-Homebrew-on-KickstarterAfter an incredible debut announcement just over a year ago, one of the hottest homebrew developments in the retro gaming world is now nearing release. Having turned to Kickstarter to help fund the project, the brains behind Tanglewood is aiming to get this upcoming game into Mega Drive consoles around the world come late 2017.

Featuring pixel-rich animation, Disney-like physics, and stunning setting, Tanglewood has already promised an awful lot to fans of Sega’s 16-bit console. Through the recently released playable demo (which is now available to download), homebrew developer Matt Phillips has raised the bar where new releases on classic systems is concerned.

Despite this promise and progress, Phillips has turned to Kickstarter in order to help recruit artists, developers and composers to ensure Tanglewood is finished. The overall plan is to get the game out on physical cartridge in a year's time, with Kickstarter backers able to secure theirs for £40 (with more lucrative options also available).

Over the next month the Tanglewood project is hoping to raise £48,000 - with over a quarter of the target met already.

Ummm...i wish the developer every success but it's a bit too expensive for me. £60 for a boxed version?
