Im sure the cat is out of the bag by now about this title so i figured i'd create a thread about it here to inform anyone who has missed
out. Currently Storm Works Interactive is working on a simple title called Blackout!. This is a lights out clone with a few things thrown
in. While this is a simple game it will still be somewhat challenging to complete. The object of the game is to obviously turn off all of
the lights on the grid in the quickest time possible while toggling the lights the least amount of times as possible. Points are
determined based on how fast the level is finished as well as how many moves it took to finish. Below ive included two screenshots
of the game so far. The game is currently still in development as we are waiting on an alpine development setup to show up here. We
are accepting donations if you are wanting to support homebrew development. This money would go straight to covering the costs of
the hardware purchased to create this game and help fund a release as well as future developments. If you would like to donate at
all please just pm myself or Jag_Slave here on the forums. Big thanks to those who continue to support homebrew developers and
the jaguar.


And now time for the pics!

Yep, thats correct. The arkanna demo and others were merely when i was still learning the jag way back when. Just got back into programming here and things are moving along smoothly.

I thought I recognized the stormworks name from somewhere, guess it seemed like a bit of a stretch that the original dev was still around after all this time so I didn't connect the dots right away!

Fantastic job though, love the style of the artwork & it looks very polished. Can't wait for a release :)

Thanks Willard ;) This was a definite first for me, going from graphic design to pixel art. It has been a bit of a learning curve for sure. Glad you like what you see so far! Wish I could show you more right now, because thats just the tip of the iceberg!

Just out of curiosity, Do most owners here own a Jag CD Unit? Looking into release formats early on here and contemplating CD and a separate cart release later possibly. Just looking for input.

Most people here own a jag CD. ok, most of fans who buys Jag games even today own a CD. only problem is the reliability of the CD drive.

Good point sir ;) And noted! Anyone else have any opinions on what should be more available? CD/Cart?

a cd release of this size will most probably be reversable to run from skunkboard from the cd

Yeah Jeff is wanting the Alpine because it has a good working debugger. We already have a dev Jag on the way. We are waiting on skunks, but we are probably going to use a combo of skunk and alpine to continue developing.

Wouldnt matter to me cd or cart would be fine but i think the masses would rather see it come to cd life.As cartridges are just more exspensive and cd's while the cd units arent as reliable as ppl want them to be would be much cheaper.Thats just what i think.
