Jaguar Homebrew News and Exclusive Video

Recommended Posts

jag_apocalypse.jpgWe've obtained exclusive video of two new Jaguar games in development: Project Apocalypse and Seaplane. While we don't know much about these titles at this time, we expect that information will soon be revealed about them. Both games were demonstrated at the recent Retro Gaming Connexion in France. These titles are being developed by Orion and Mk, who previously released the game Diam Jag for free. We've uploaded the videos to our server and you can view (or save them) by following these links:

In other Jaguar news, Matthias Domin has released a new Jaguar CD homebrew game titled Double Feature #1. Included are two games, ConnectTHEM and Reversi, on a fully encrypted Jaguar CD that will run on any stock Jaguar CD player. You can learn more by visiting the Double Feature website.

 

 

 

Lars Hannig of Starcat Developments has released a new Jaguar CD game titled, Lost Treasures. Lost Treasures features 30 work-in-progress versions of various announced and unannounced Starcat Developments projects spanning a seven year period. Sadly these projects were lost in a system crash in 2005, but now you have the opportunity to sample them in their last known state. Also included is a demo of the upcoming graphics adventure Eerievale. Please visit Starcat Developments to learn more about Lost Treasures and other Starcat projects.

 

 

 

And finally, we've been told that the game Another World (also known as "Out of this World"), a popular action-adventure game that originally saw release on the Amiga, Atari ST and PC platforms in 1991, is now being brought to the Atari Jaguar. The Jagware team has obtained permission from the game's original designer, Eric Chahi, to port the game to the Jaguar and we look forward to learning more as development progresses!

Another World should be interesting. I think this is a game that fits the Jag pretty well.

I loved Flashback on the Jag. I'm curious to see how it will turn out.

Thanks, just one thing, the video (Thanks to Seb for them) are not really good, that's don't give a real idea, but the two games (Seaplane and P.A.) run in one Vbl (50 or 60 fps), and for Seaplane the graphics are only the demo one, the game will got another nice graphics ;)

Definitely cool that those games will be available on the CF. I wonder if anyone will possibly get around to porting some of the Reservoir Gods games to it as well? :D

What format are these in as Windows Media Player 10 does not appear to recognise them

I believe it is Divx codec.

Yes, it's DivX. You can either get the codec from DivX.com, or use a video player which supports the format natively, such as VLC media player (by the way, take the time to try it out if you can - it's more lightweight and powerful than WMP).

VLC is what I use in OS X and it works quite well.

Just as a side note, I think someone should update the Wikipedia article, since it doesn't mention (in the "versions" section) the soon-to-be port to Jaguar, while it reports instead a lot of "unofficial ports"

I think someone should update the Wikipedia article
Maybe we should wait until the port is actually completed and available..? ;)

Yes, I think so. The Wikipedia editors would probably delete the info otherwise. Edited by Zerosquare
