Homebrew games

I added a new category to my links (located in the right column) for homebrew games. For some reason, I had an urge to look into homebrews this weekend, and I found some cool stuff (like new releases for the Sega Genesis).

One of the most promising homebrew games I found is Pier Solar and the Great Architects, an RPG that is in development for the Sega Genesis. Apparently, this game has been delayed for a year or two, but they are in beta testing now, so it may be released in the near future. Unfortunately, even though the game is not yet available, they have enough preorders to cover the entire first run of the game. They may release the game again later, but from what I’ve read, it seems that they may do so as a downloadable game, which detracts from the experience for me (I want to be able to pop a brand new Genesis game in my console).

If you want to try the game out, there is a downloadable demo on the Pier Solar Web site under the Media tab. I have yet to try it, but I have downloaded it and will give it a playthrough later.

Also, they have posted some gameplay video to YouTube, including the video below.

Hopefully, I’ll find a way to get my hands on a copy whenever it is released.
