Coding an entire game in assembler. Matt Phillips is creating a brand new game for a 25 year old console.
Tanglewood is a brand new and original game for the SEGA Genesis and Mega Drive, to be released on physical cartridge in winter 2017.
Matt Phillips a long-time game developer and big fan of the 68000 CPU found in the SEGA consoles, has launched a KickStarter project to produce a brand-new original SEGA game using all the original development tools and to produce it into an original cartridge also.
To make TangleWood more real he is using only the original tools, no new-age programming tricks, pure simple assembly all the way, true hard-core programming talent here, which will give you a true SEGA gameplay experience just like so many decades ago.

Attached below is the prototype ROM which is compatible with most major emulators, but we recommend playing on a real console using a flash cart like Everdrive, the current prototype contains just the first three acts from the first level, and to find out more about the development process, check out the attached video, and then we recommend hoping over to the KS page to support his work!
