Posted for LIZARDRIVE:

Perlin & Pinpin - The Robin Tower" is a game developed by LIZARDRIVE for your SEGA Genesis / Megadrive.


This game can be seen as a compilation of minigames with side quests on top.


You play as Prince Perlin, who is chasing the devilish Pinpin throughout the different floors of the Robin tower.
Pinpin has indeed kidnapped the yet to be named Princess.
The different levels will not respect notions of time & space, giving it a sort of Alice in Wonderland taste.


No release date so far.

Thanks a lot Melf for helping me out!

Here is an already old video showing how our game looks:

(all our pixel art is made by Gunpog)

We intend to release a first demo this very week.
I hope you guys will like this first taste of the game, even if it features maths!

In any case, feel free to share your questions/thoughts/feedback on this thread.

So awesome! Offtopic: not sure if the community can absorb that many projects properly! I get some sense that, once released, most of the hype and attention somewhat vanishes, even when the games do actually deliver. I mean, shouldn't we be dissecting hidden secrets, codes, stragegy tips, etc etc etc for the many games released in the past 3-4 years ?

These games sit on shelves. (I exaggerate, but it's more right than wrong.)

We intend to pack as much content and secrets as possible for the few people who still care.
There will actually be an hidden minigame in this first demo.
I doubt everyone will find it. :-)

Thank you guys for your kind words.
We indeed are lucky to have Gunpog do our pixel art!

A promise is a promise, you can DL right now our very first demo: https://lizardrive.itch.io/perlin-and-pinpin-the-robin-tower

Hope you will like it. If not, use it to punish kids during Christmas holidays! :-D

Thank you!
We intend to do a little contest next year based on the hidden mini game.
Our means are very limited, but we'll see! ;-)

Our 1st demo was downloaded +200 times! :cool:
There may be higher figures around, but we are super happy of the support we received. Thank you!
We updated this demo with SGDK 1.51 (and tweaked a few things in the background): https://lizardrive.itch.io/perlin-and-pinpin-the-robin-tower

Meanwhile, we are preparing the release of our 2nd episode, which you can get a glimpse in this short video:

Do they f***. Both Xeno Crisis and Tanglewood have had more play time than any other Mega Drive cart (only superseded by some Mega CD and, ahem, SNES games) in recent months. Iím also thinking of starting Pier Solar again once I finish Final Fantasy III on SNES and Cosmic Fantasy 2 on PCE.

The game has a really nice graphic style. When I first played it I just sat down and scored 19/20 and thought that was the whole game. Its only after reading the comments here that I went back to it and figured things out and I'm glad I did, it was fun figuring things out.

Is there any reward for getting a high score on the pocket game? I got a decent score and don't see anything new happen afterwards.

Thank you for trying out our first episode twice!
Well... There is no reward for getting a high score. BUT I would NOT suggest players to get a TOO SUSPICIOUS high score...! *wink wink* ;-)

How many hits did you get?
ShiningBZH reached 124 hits and Jymmanob 126 hits if I recall properly. Kaot did very well too.
I stick to 73 hits... :-(
But Vetea barely reached 60, so I'm not the last! :-D

Feel free to post your best scores here!

Ahah! No, I simply did not want to show the different pieces below. Keep a little bit of mystery! ;-)

Thanks guys!

Love the art and music, i want see more about the gameplay, if itís just a puzzle focused game or mix of genres?

LIZARDRIVE

Thank you! I love Gunpog's art too (I am in charge of the rest).
This will be a mix of genres, but nothing too action oriented is planned for the moment.
Idea of this project is also to create a small universe with (hopefully) funny characters.
We'll see later if we can aim at something bigger!

Why this thread was moved to other forum? There are lots of homebrew games that still are in forum genesis does, even games that has only plans.

wow, I really love the graphical direction in this game!!

i think they'd also look great for re-use an action/RPG if you ever decide to go in that direction one day

Thank you! All our pixel art is handled by Gunpog.
He is open for business and reachable here: https://twitter.com/iamgunpog

Actually, we would love to do an action RPG one day, especially as we are BIG fans of Crusader of Centy.
Who knows what the future holds? ;)

Since I am there, you guys may want to listen to our minigame song rearranged by Break: https://soundcloud.com/breaktime234/perlin-pinpin-the-robin-tower-perlins-exam-ym2612-sn76489-rearrange
I really like it, it sounds much better than my own! :p
He also has other songs on his channel which you may like. Check it out!

Oh, yeah, we are still working on our upcoming second demo / episode.
Lots of stupid puns in the making! :D
