It’s been over two years since Big Evil Corporation launched a Kickstarter campaign for their 16-bit puzzle platformer “Tanglewood“. Well, not only did “Tanglewood” manage to reach it’s Kickstarter goal on time (which “Tanglewood” did in December of 2016), but the game raised over 54,000 pounds in total (the original goal was 48,000 pounds).

So, why am I bringing this up now? Because I just spotted the following statement about “Tanglewood” by Big Evil Corporation’s Matt Phillips:

“TANGLEWOOD will be released on 14th August 2018 at 2pm GMT, for SEGA Mega Drive, Genesis, Windows, Mac, and Linux.The TANGLEWOOD Demo will be available within the next few days.Matt <3 “ Matt Phillips, Big Evil Corporation

tanglewood hell awaits

“Tanglewood” is said to be a true 16-bit puzzle/platformer. Well, the game sure looks like a game for the Mega Drive.

Yes, that’s right, “Tanglewood” is coming to PC via Steam (Windows, MAC and Linux) and Mega drive/Genesis on the 14th of August =) And for those who have no idea (whatsoever) what “Tanglewood” is all about, here’s a short description of the game:

“TANGLEWOOD® is a brand new and original puzzle-platforming game originally released for the SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis, coming soon to Windows, Mac, Linux, Everdrive, and your favourite Mega Drive emulators.

A true 16-bit, challenging platforming experience that will make fans of the golden gaming era feel warm and fuzzy.Set in a fictional world, the game follows a young creature, Nymn, who is separated from home after the twin suns set.

Unable to get back to safety, Nymn must find a way to survive the night terrors and make it to morning. TANGLEWOOD’s world is a dangerous one after dark, and Nymn must use skills of evasion, special abilities, traps and trickery to defeat predators.TANGLEWOOD® is programmed in pure 68000 assembly language, using original development tools and processes from the 1990s.”

tanglewood the beast himself

Believe it or not, but you will actually be able to play “Tanglewood” on the Mega Drive. Yes, that’s right, there will be a “Tanglewood” Mega Drive cartridge.

As for features, here are some of the said launch features for “Tanglewood”:

tanglewood be quick or be dead

Tanglewood” is said to offer 28 levels in total (there will also be achievements and secrets for the players to find).

I would also like to point out that there is a playable demo for “Tanglewood” (Windows, MAC and Linux). So if you’re not quite sure if this is your kind of game or not, then you might want to give the demo a try before you buy the game.
