We have seen plenty of games appear on the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter for various videogame projects over the years, but not many with various different platforms planned. Escape 2042: The Truth Defenders, a brand new 2D platform game from OrionSoft, is being developed for four different platforms: Mega Drive/Genesis, Dreamcast, Game Boy, and Windows.
We take a critical look at the newly released fan translation for Out Live on the Turbo Grafx-16 console. If you are looking for hand holding in your RPG’s then look elsewhere, this is old school as can be.

We don’t see a lot of new PC Engine, also known as Turbo Grafx-16, games come across Kickstarter. That is why when I saw Henshin Engine I knew I had to write it up. Write it up I did (here). What we have here is a new action platform title that is now coming to […]
New Turbo Grafx-16, also known as PC Engine in Japan, games are not all that regular today. Fans have become accustomed to maybe one new game for this console per year, if that. Compared to the Sega Genesis and Atari 2600 new game output by independent developers, this is rather sad. Someone didn’t tell Sarumaru […]
Aetherbyte, one of the most prolific supporters of the Turbo Grafx-16 console are working hard to keep the defunct NEC machine, and others, alive and well. The man behind the Aetherbyte is none other than Andrew Darovich who has been working hard on bringing more original Turbo Grafx-16 games to fans for awhile now. Enough […]
