Don’t Be Square (18-01-2015) (N64 Techdemo)

Don’t Be Square by Sebastian Mihai is techdemo with source code available, helpful for starting programming on a Nintendo 64.

Release notes:

Man, this one was a pickle to develop for. The Nintendo 64 SDK compiled for Windows is finicky at best. Some of the platform code won’t compile like it does on Linux, and the compiler seems to either generate misaligned code or wrong CPU opcodes. Not a pleasant one to develop for, that’s for sure!

Nonetheless, if you’re interesting in making Nintendo 64 homebrew games, this tech demo could be a decent starting point.

Eight Queens (16-01-2015) (Sega 32x misc)

Eight Queens by Sebastian Mihai is an implementation of the Eight Queens Problem on Sega’s unfortunate add-on to the Genesis, the 32x. Towards the end of the Genesis era, Sega’s plan was for the 32x to tide Genesis players over, until the release of the next-gen system, the Sega Saturn. It seems that Sega preferred planet code-names for their systems, as the internal name for the 32x was Project Mars.

This Sega 32x homebrew finds all solutions, whereby no two chess queens threaten each other (as in, share a row, column, or diagonal), on a standard chess board of eight by eight squares.

Gianas Return v1.10.1 (DC Game Port)

Giana’s Return aims to be a worthy UNOFFICIAL sequel of “The Great Giana Sisters” and has been recently updated for Dreamcast to match to it’s latest v1.10 version. Ported to Dreamcast by Indiket.

Giana's Return – an inofficial sequel of Giana Sisters by Retroguru (Official Trailer)

Watch this video on YouTube.

Evil Swampy and his followers have stolen the magic ruby, which made it once possible for Giana and Maria to return from their dream. Many creatures are after this ruby, but does it really has power, or was it just a coincidence?As this is not bad enough, Swampy fell in love at first sight with Giana’s sister Maria and shamelessly kidnapped her. She simply has been at the wrong place at the wrong time.You will now have to take on the role of Giana and get back the magic ruby. And most important of all, save your beloved sister Maria and get home save!

Release notes:

Unfortunately we had a bug in Giana’s Return v1.10 for Dreamcast, which crashed the game after level 8. After some investigation Indiket was able to track the bug down. The version of mikmod used was a bit old and had to be updated to v3.3.7. The game works as expected again. Sorry Dreamcast users! Head over to the download section for the update and enjoy a crash free version.
