Save Gaia: The Cy-Mage: JRPG by Generation 2

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


It's been over a year since my last post about the development of this game, and just thought I'd update you, development is still going strong.

Over Christmas I took the decision to completely overhaul the engine after running out of Sprite ROM, which put the whole project at risk!

Luckily, rewriting the engine after proving the concept of an actual, working, turn-based JRPG on the 2600 has freed up enough space to bring it to completion.


I'm hoping this will be the first of a trilogy about the land of Gaia, dpending on how successful the first one is.

We are being published by AtariAge, who demoed the proof-of-concept build at PRGE, and the new engine should hopefully be unveiled in alpha demo form on ZeroPage this week (or next).

The game should be a decent number of hours long.

You will have multiple dungeons, over-world, shops, itinerary, inns, turn-based battles with a large selection of baddies, a story, text, cut-scenes, environmental music, player leveling, Armour and Weapon leveling, elemental spells, animations and save feature.

All these features have been built and work! The engine works, it's smooth, it's easy to use.... its just a case of filling up with content now. Finally, genuine JRPG is 100% coming to Atari 2600 on a physical release, very soon!!

Please get involved on our Facebook Page, http://facebook.com/generation2games or http://www.generation2games.com 


This will be released AFTER Panic! Rooms (April), I am aiming for PRGE for this one, but we shall see, it's a rather large game! Could take some time.

Very sorry but I don't do WIP releases, I will probably do a demo with the final build, with final code etc. Thanks for the kind words etc :) Keep safe!
