    Their PC games are well done, Oniken follows the nes limitations but I don't like the gameplay very much, it's too close to the frist Ninja Gaiden/Castlevania to my taste.
    Odallus is the inverse, better gameplay but don't follow the limitations making the graphics a bit of a mess, like Shovel Knight.
    And now they're creating Blazing Chrome, a shoot'em up inspired by Contra Hardcorps:

    It seems more like a test version, there are no guarantees that the game will be developed for Genesis.

    Oh, I see, it's just a fan of the game putting something together for the hell of it. Well that's a bummer.

    Megadrive Updated Release List

    I've been keeping my own list of new releases for the Genesis/MD, and now that I finally signed up here and can post, I'd like to share it. I would love to supplement the table with box art and links to forum threads in the future, as in the original post. BTW, I've been calling new releases for older systems "new old games," in case that's mentioned elsewhere on the page. Update: I've added links for the past 30 or so pages of forum posts (as of 2/2019, so back to about mid-2016).

    The tables are roughly ordered by release date (announce date for upcoming games), though I wasn't around for pre-2016 games. I have tried to keep hot button issues (such as voltage level shifting and use of donor cartridges in particular) out of the tables.

    If I missed something, or you have a tip, or are a developer and have more up to date info, feel free to PM me if you don't want to reply to the thread. Five most recent tips:
    • (11/1/2019) SFT is closing their publishing arm, and Vixen 357 has been canceled (at least as a SFT release)
    • (10/2019) Updating Mega Cat's Backerkit pre-orders to go with Phantom Gear, adding Demons of Asteborg, adding actual release of 30 Years of Nintendon't, and adding a few other rumored releases.
    • (08/2019) Adding Devwill Too and Columbus Circle's release of Ultracore, cleaning up recent releases, marking a lot of older "Further Out" games that have fallen by the wayside as "Inactive"
    • (06/2019) Adding Arkagis revolution, Foxy Land, and the Strictly Limited Games release of Ultracore. Updated "Project Genesis" to Phantom Gear
    • (05/2019) Freezedream's Today is now the earliest cataloged album-on-cart.
    • (05/2019) Added Mega Cat's silently announced set of Genesis games, and Second Dimension's Curse of Illmoore Bay is now live on Kickstarter.


    Other new release lists:
    • YaroNet Thread - The game list is kept pretty well up to date, but some of the games' current statuses are outdated
    • This Thread - Zebbe updated the OP with my post contents (thanks!) as of early 2019.
    • SegaRetro Wiki - Up to date through about 2017.

    It Came from the Desert (INACTIVE) 2015 Port (Amiga) Cinemaware WaterMelon Games Action Planned to be a completion of the abandoned Genesis port of the game. News stopped coming in 2016, and with WMG's other infamous (in)activity, you can consider this project inactive or abandoned.
    Sydney Hunter and the Caverns of Death (INACTIVE) 2015 Port (PC) CollectorVision CollectorVision Action Forum Thread. Announced in 2015 as a port of a Flash game (alongside an SNES port of the same game). The SNES port was released in 2017, and it seems that CollectorVision has moved on to development of other Sydney Hunter games. The last news of this came from Vetea in a forum post here in mid 2017.
    Tetriega and Kung Fu UFO (INACTIVE) 2017 New Retro Nerve (N/A) Action, Brawler Tetriega was announced as a multi-player tetris game. Retro Nerve Games have transitioned to developing Kung Fu UFO, but may yet return to Tetriega. Kung Fu UFO is on the back-burner, as their original Indiegogo campaign to fund development failed in 10/2018. Retro Nerve partnered with Second Dimension for Illmoore Bay, and around 08/2019 their developer website went offline. As such, their prior efforts are now listed as inactive.
    "Project Plague" / Magot (INACTIVE) 10/2018 New Warlock Entertainment (N/A) Action Forum Thread. There have been no significant updates in months, as of this writing. Additionally, their developer website has gone offline sometime around 08/2019. As such, this is now listed as inactive.

They are still planning on developing and releasing Papi Commando Remix in ROM format.

A Mega Cat representative confirmed that these rumors are false by e-mail on 9/4/18, further noting that he has gotten an inordinate number of e-mails on the subject.
    Crypt of Dracula 2018 New Pixel Pusher (N/A) Action Looking to Kickstarter the cartridge release in 2019.
    Leyria 03/2018 New Original Studio (N/A) RPG Forum Thread. Their Catarse (crowdfunding) campaign failed to finance the game, so they are working on it in their spare time. They have occasionally released in-progress ROMs through their twitter (linked as developer page).
    The Chaos Engine 2 10/2018 Port (Amiga) The Bitmap Brothers Pixel Heart Top-Down Shooter This was originally intended to be available with the Rush On Games pre-order of packages including the Piko licensed games, Magic Pockets, and FX Unit Yuki, but was not.

    Managed memory, in my VDP? It's more likely than you think.
    Expand your ROM size with this one weird pointer dereference (Fonzie hates them).

    Keeping the list of new physically released homebrew games up to date! ...And looking to buy a few I've missed.

    Star J isn't a single print run. Today I received my copy from the 2nd batch. So everyone who is interested just should contact fasebonus.

    Spotted some incorrect info on Oh Mummy Genesis:

    Includes a direct port of the ZX Spectrum version of the game and a remake.
    The version included is that for the Amstrad CPC, which was the original game.

    Also, they've removed the copyrighted material on the new version included on Megagames Almanac.

    They're ready to buy anytime from Play-Asia since last year.



    Magic Pockets : https://www.play-asia.com/magic-pockets/13/70bx4b

    Water Margin (Pixel Heart version) : https://www.play-asia.com/water-marg...wind/13/70bx5j (already sold out now)

    The Chaos Engine 2 would be available too on Play-Asia too when it's finished.

    Thanks for this list! Quick note re: the I Heart Pizza games. None of them are being licensed from other companies. I Heart Pizza owns them all outright.

    Updated, thanks. I have never had any luck with the whole "e-mail 1985 Alternativo to pre-order" thing. The one time I did get a response, they said they were sold out of this run of games, but didn't indicate that there was another run coming.

    Updated, thanks. Must've had ZX Spectrum on the brain when I wrote that row.

    I'll make the notes clearer, but you can actually buy them direct from Pixel Heart, even. I wasn't aware that Chaos Engine 2 wasn't finished. I've been messaging RushOnGames, since I pre-ordered there, and they indicated that FX Unit Yuki was the only one of the set that wasn't ready to ship yet.

    Thanks for the clarification. I had seen Smart Mouse on the list and immediately thought "they must've licensed that from Piko."

    Sydney Hunter and the Cavern of Death was once announced for a release not only for MD but for SCD, MS and DC as well but it seems plans may have been changed now. At least there aren't any news for a long time now. Same goes with numerous games by Piko. I just name Jim Powers here but they announced plenty of other games too.

    We will open a 45 day maximum pre-order for 3 GEN/MD titles:

    Thunderbolt II and official release, not much changes other than difficulty levels.
    Switchblade - a port of the popular Amiga game
    Canon: Legends of the New Gods - translation of Taiwanese exclusive game.

    Pre-orders will open in the next week or so and will start shipping first come first serve on or before April 15 2019.

    Pre-ordered games will be 5 USD cheaper. So on April 15 the price will jump by 5 bucks.

    Jim Power is coming late 2019 for sure.

    I hadn't heard of the Sydney Hunter series. Thanks for the tip! Too bad it seems to have gone quiet.

    Thanks for the tip! I had heard that Jim Power was getting a release, and then seen some questionable bootlegs floating around after news had gone silent, and just assumed that was that.
