Knight Guy homebrew on the 7800?

Recommended Posts

So I stumbled upon this video: 

 

which mentions "Atari 7800" and "homebrew", but doesn't really give much more info. 


Does anyone know what this is? I saw that there is a 2600 version of the game, but was curious if this game is in development for the 7800? Is this a sort of "Zelda-esque" game?

 

Thanks in advance!

This is a brand new WIP game being developed. Not sure that an official announcement from @vhzc has been posted about it yet. But this is still in pretty early stages I believe. There are two other Knight Guy games being worked on for the 7800 in addition to this one. Knight Guy: Castle Days is essentially feature complete at this point but not yet actually released in physical format.

 

And there is also Knight Guy on Board which is a board game style of play where you roll a die and move Knight the number of spaces you roll. The spaces you land on will either provide a reward or punishment or require you to play mini games to get rewards or fight enemies along the way. Also I believe feature complete but again, not yet released in a physical form.

Thanks! Ok, so they are three totally different games, 1) "Knight Guy: Castle Days", which is a Mega-Man sort of platform adventure game, 2) "Knight Guy: Quest" (shorthand for "Knight Guy in low res world: Quest for something") which looks to be more along the lines of a sort of "Zelda" / "Crusader of Centy" / "Neutopia" / "Golvellius" sort of game, and "Knight Guy on Board" which looks awesome in its own right!

 

All 3 look great. I'd be especially excited about "Knight Guy: Quest", as that sort of overhead action/adventure game (with a fantasy theme) would fill probably the single biggest void in the 7800 library.

 

The ProSystem needs its version of "Golden Axe Warrior" and "The Legend of Zelda"!!!

Yeah, untill now there are 3 Knight Guy based game for the 7800 (and one wip for 2600), one completed and two in development.

Knight Guy Castle Days is finished and I am currently working on its manual.

Knight Guy on board is in a hiatus until I figure out a good final boss.

And Quest for something that is a really early project, but I have already coded almost all the game mechanics (including a mid boss battle, health recover and such) and I plan to release a demo when I reach the 15 or so screens, that would be very soon.
