Retail Clerk ’89 (August 2019) (Genesis Game)

Hugues Johnson got in touch with us again to point at his final version of his Sega Genesis game Retail Clerk ’89.

Retail Clerk ’89 started as a personal exercise to learn Sega Genesis programming. It’s now a complete, albeit short, game demo. Although originally inspired by Phantasy Star II and III it morphed into more of an interactive fiction / casual adventure game.

Unless you find bugs and let Hugues know, this might be the final release.

Rollie and Lorrie are on a mission to save their forest, Paradise Gorge. Their goal is to defeat the brats and bullies who have seized power in the midst of an unstable ecosystem precipitated by a sudden overpopulation of snakes. They aim to lead as examples, to show how sharing and sacrifice are rewarding, and that rampant self-serving brutality perpetuates destruction.
