I am Oscar Kenneth, from Kai Magazine (Developer of Ninja Odyssey).
Here we are again to let you know that we FINISHED the second game for Intellivision (now it is in beta-testing process) and that it will be published by Elektronite on April if the betatesting process checks out.
The game’s name is: TNT Cowboy
An explosive Western Action RPG.
Imagine playing a game such as Zelda or Final Fantasy, in which you defeat your enemies by blowing them up with TNT charges.
Yes, this game is a full blown action RPG with experience points, level ups, money, quests, etc, but also, the combats have Bomberman elements.
Just watch the video and you will understand (NTSC colors):
It can’t be appreciated on the video but the game works completely smooth at 60 fps (50fps on Pal/Secam) but the video conversion and emulator and vsync problems make it impossible for me to record a 1:1 video.
This game also features a real time shadow system which modifies the shadow casted by the solid elements in the game as they change (due to the explosions) and the main character gets affected by the shadows as well.
This game took us thousands of man hours to complete and it is really big.
There is a full screen intro with several images, an ending with the same, several complex BGM, many many areas to play etc.
The game is more than 200Kb big, which if I am not mistaken, it is the biggest finished game for Intellivision ever created (not demo, there are bigger demos).
I usually make Kai Magazine covers myself (such as Ninja Odyssey and many of our other previous games) but for this game I hired a professional cover artist who did a really nice job.
I also hired a music composer and I wrote and adapted the music on Intellivision format.
We all went the extra mile for this game to make it as big as we could. I really hope you like it and that you will support it so we can continue making games for Intellivision.
On that regard, I can tell you that we started the development on the third game already.
“Antropomorphic Force” will be a fast-paced frenetic Sci-Fi Arcade Space Shooter with humanoid shaped robots, weird aliens, multiple scroll layers, multi-colored sprites (player and enemies) and lots and lots of stuff moving on the screen at the same time.
We will show you something as the game advances further, but I can tell you that it already looks better than Ninja Odyssey and TNT Cowboy.
As we learn more about the Intellivision hardware we can do better stuff.
Thank you everyone for your support!
Special thanks to Elektronite, Artrag, Nanochess,Victor Sanchez, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Xavi Sorinas for making this possible!
