What is SEGA Spectrum?

28 May

The image above was posted by a NeoGAF user a while ago, but still nobody has a clue on what this mysterious SEGA Spectrum is.

For those who don’t speak Japanese, the text says “A new world of entertainment”, but it could be referred to everything. Starting with a long waited return of SEGA in the hardware market with a brand new console (which is highly unlikely) to some sort of digital platform for releasing arcade titles directly to the cabinet’s boards (similar to the one from Taito).

Everything is possible, and we’ll know the truth soon enough as the date points to June 6th, exactly during this year’s E3.

The 90’s Arcade Racer has been fully founded on Kickstarter

12 Feb

We are very happy to share with you the news that The 90’s Arcade Racer has reached its goal (just $10k) on Kickstarter!

What are we talking about? The 90’s Arcade Racer is a racing game inspired by the great arcade racers of the 90’s, in particular it takes inspiration from some SEGA‘s materpieces, like Scud Race, Daytona USA and Indy 500.

The goal of Antonis Pelekanos (aka Pelikan13), designer of the game in collaboration with Nicalis, is to recreate the feeling those games evoked from players by maintaining the colorful, vibrant look and sense of speed but with modern visuals and car handling models. Basically a pure nostalgia-bath!
