Hello! This game looks so nice! The graphics is in classic style, like the games for Nintendo Entertainment System. Great!
This looks fun, though will older versions ever be up for download again?
Yes, it was confusing with two demos, but I uploaded the early access demo again as part of the payed content. All those levels are part of the free demo now though.
This looks beautiful! I featured your game in our round-up of recent Retro Indie Games!
Hi, I am very interested in your game but I have a question. If I buy the demo will that give me access to the finished game when it is released? I ask this because it's a little bit unusual to pay for a demo rom, (on itch.io) especially at the price that you have listed here. Thank you for supporting the Sega Genesis/ MD.
Yes you will! Think of it like pre-buying the game. There's going to be a free demo later as well based on the earlier levels of the game. This demo is more to show off the game for supporters; it's frankly maybe a bit hard for players who haven't played Slow Mole or similar games before. If you support the game you'll also get access to the beta version when it drops later this spring.
If you do have a go at the demo, there is already quite a lot of gameplay to be had. And don't feel bad if you die a lot, one of the worlds best retro game players did too. From speedrunner and controller maker extraordinaire Skunky48's twitter account:
its actually insane how dedicated you are to this concept. mad respect!
Thanks! I had several ideas I want to develop further with a 16-bit processor that can handle more advanced physics, while still keeping most of the advantages of a platform like the NES, such as super fast inputs (no lag) and a simplified color palette for clarity. Also, when working on a new platform it really helps to already know the game design and physics engine you want to create. It makes working with SGDK (a fantastic toolset to create Megadrive games in C) for the first time much more manageable.
