Hell yeah, I would be pumped to play this!  I'm really looking forward to the Lynx version.  I'd buy a Jaguar sequel (or remake, or whatever) for sure.

 Any game, regardless of genre and quality? ;-) 

 

 

 

Sadly ... yes 🙄

I don't think so, if you look at the popularity of Phoboz' RPG game and Metroidvania projects. Certain genres are very underrepresented on Jaguar and I feel fans are really having a strong desire for such games.

Graphical intense shmups is another genre that people might want.

 

On the other hand, interest for the 1000th Tetris or Break Out clone might be modest at best.

I totally agree. I can´t even program the microwave oven, so I have probably no right to judge any project, which is probably made with love, loads of time and heart blood.

Some of the stuff what appears is simply mind-blowing ... Zaku on the Lynx, Wyvern Tales, Alice Moms Rescue on the Jag, also some ports are simply great (Xenon 2 e.g.) and a real enrichment for the Jag/Lynx library. And yes ... a Metriodvania clone ... would love to see something like that. 

Other games on the other hand ... well ... if they are released as free ROMs for Skunkboard or emulators, sure ... doesn´t hurt.

But I would not not spend even one minute to load them into the memory of the Skunk ... really like the Jag, but there are thousands of good games out there, no need to waste time for a crappy clone of whatever just to play on my Atari.

Demand is obviously higher for rarer genres and well-made games, but the Jaguar community also includes a significant number of people who are willing to pay for anything, regardless of the quality or novelty (whether they actually play those cartridges is another matter).

Jaguar would be cool, but (sorry to say in this particular forem), have you considered a 7800 version? Odynexus would seem a good fit since for the 7800 sprite engine, and you'd still be 6502 based. While the original only had TIA sound, many modern games now take advantage of the dual POKEY chip setup, for a total of 10 sound channels.

Thanks for the suggestion. But honestly, I don't think the 7800 would be the right platform for the artstyle of the game and the things we like to improve over the Lynx version.

Maybe there could be some cross-platform interconnectivity between the game versions, like a code you get when beating the lynx version that does something interesting in the jag version or vice versa.  Just a random thought since the game could be coming out on multiple platforms.

I'm not a specialist of the 7800 but it is on par with a NES right? As strange as it might sound, neither the 7800 nor the NES can handle Odynexus art. Maybe a magician could, but I'm not :)

 

Trying would be a cool experience but I'd rather go for the Jag first ;)

The Lynx has MUCH better graphics capabilities than both the NES and 7800. As the game is about intense graphics and lush artwork,  going to a more capable system like the Jaguar makes sense.

I would purchase this for the Jag.   I enjoyed Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy.  Best of luck with your projects!

Oh no! 

 

It's not our intent to make another Trevor McFur, I promise. ;-)

I'm sure we could afford the Trevor McFur IP and rebrand Odynexus into Trevor II. The jag community is waiting for that I'm sure of it :D

Somebody out there is working on a minigame anthology featuring the Trevor McFur cast that looks really nice, I gotta say :D

Yeah it works, because it is not a sequel to a bad shmup! ;-)
