Big Evil Corporation has released its debut game, the puzzle-platformer Tanglewood. The authentic 16-bit adventure is released for Steam (PC, Mac, Linux) on August 14, for £13.95 / $17.99 USD / €14.95, and is also available for the SEGA Mega Drive, on a physical cartridge priced at £54.00
Unlike older games, the Mega Drive version of Tanglewood is playable on PAL, NTSC and NTSC-J consoles. The Steam version of the game includes the Mega Drive ROM file, allowing flash cartridge owners to play it on original SEGA hardware.
“My aim for Tanglewood was to create it in the same way as my favourite games from my childhood,” says Phillips. “This idea has been brewing since I was nine years old – the kid in me has long wanted to see my very own Mega Drive box on a store shelf!
“Tanglewood is the culmination of 25 years of gaming influences, as well as a love letter to every 1990s gem, and to every 2D platformer that captured my imagination. A great big thank you, too, to SEGA, for inspiring me to enter the world of video games development.”
