    480 rooms to explore
    Two endings
    Six unique boss battles

    Turbobooster+/TurboCD/ save support
    Sega Genesis cart will have internal battery save


Featuring art by Michirin and music by Brandon and Derek Fietcher

Kickstarter coming in August of 2020!

I've been toiling away at this game for months, but I'm not great at self-promotion, so I don't really release gameplay videos or show off progress very often. Meanwhile, we're very close to being ready for publication.  I'll be releasing a teaser trailer shortly to try and build interest. I'll actually be using this forum to help me select the best trailer.

I figure it's best to start a thread to talk about it, since it's pretty near to release. Since I don't have the trailer ready, here's a video of a couple minutes of one of my favorite sections.

Looks neato, and I dig the creaky leather sound when you swing on the whip.

Looks very nice! Will the Hu Card version have passwords to save progress?

Unfortunately no, only temporary saves (unless you have a CD unit or TurboBooster Plus!). It's about 150ish bytes to save your progress. I did consider it, but I didn't think it'd be feasible for me to write an algorithm to compress the data into password form.

Hey, you.

Super cool!  Maybe this means Michirin will return to the forums too with her PCE covers.
