Relating to unbiased arcade video games, we work quite a bit within the area of arcade video improvement. I hope to have an unbiased video "Coming Quickly" to accompany the titles at present accessible, all earlier than IAAPA, if potential. Certainly one of them shall be a brand new one that’s being developed for the Neo Geo MVS and AES platform below the identify Venture Neon.
The MVS isn’t any stranger to new developments, thanks specifically to NG: Dev Group, however this title doesn’t come from NGDT. Developed by an Australian crew referred to as Fullset, Venture Neon seeks to additional strengthen MVS's filming repertoire. To assist finance this effort, they launched a Kickstarter that, on the time of writing this text, had raised simply over $ 6,000, the purpose being $ 34,480. Right here is the promotional video:
I'm simply going to borrow some options from the Kickstarter web page (calling him right here, I do know)
Rock-solid motion of 60 frames per second, scrolling parallax and exquisite animated sprites
5 distinctive ranges and ending boss fights
Vibrant pixel artwork graphics
Large number of enemies and weapons
Tight controls with particular emphasis on minimal / no offset
A unusually acquainted antagonist
They’ve commonplace cartridges (each for MVS and AES) with a promise of at the least AU $ 450 (at present $ 309); a collectors version shall be accessible for $ 100 extra. The CE may have a Shockbox storage case, a espresso cup and a Venture Neon t-shirt; printed assist materials (directions, poster, marquee) and a sheet of stickers for sprites. In case you promise $ 1,500 you will get the MVS Arcade Operator Version, which provides a "business arcade operator license". I have no idea what which means for the extra $ 1,000, however it’ll embody the whole lot the EC has.
That's Kickstarter, so that you by no means actually know, however the estimated supply for that’s nonetheless a 12 months in December 2020. You’ll be able to comply with Fullset right here on Twitter, Fb and / or YouTube, and we'll maintain a take a look at this over the following 12 months. What do you assume from the data printed up to now?
