Tanglewood is a brand-new, original game for the SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis. A true 16-bit experience, evocative of classic games of the 1990s, this lovingly realised platformer is released on a cartridge, compatible with all official variants of SEGA’s 30-year-old console, as well as Steam (PC, Mac, Linux). Digital versions include the Mega Drive ROM, for emulation/flashcart use.
Set in a fictional world, Tanglewood follows a young, fox-like creature called Nymn, who awakes lost, separated from his family, in the heart of the dark and menacing forest that gives the game its name. Unable to find his way back to his pack and their underground home, Nymn must survive the night in the Tanglewood, escaping encounters with its more beastly inhabitants. Nymn must use his skills of evasion, special abilities, traps and trickery to defeat his predators. Colour is power in Tanglewood, and Nymn will change his coat to suit the situation at hand.
Tanglewood is developed using original SEGA dev tools from the 1990s, and programmed in pure 68000 assembly language. This is a Mega Drive game made as Mega Drives used to be, with no modern trickery.
Tanglewood has previously been featured on the BBC and many more games and mainstream media outlets.
