    The graphics will be a bit different too; there will be more special-effects in the cartridge version because the Mega CD just canīt pull off as much(that is true!) for memory access reasons.
    Maybe there will be some content differences like stuff we could not put in the cart because of the limited ROM-size...
    There will also be specials on CD, since only 440 MByte can be used for game data on Mega CD. So expect making-ofs, art-galleries etc.

    Awesome! I'm looking forward to the making of.
    Oh, may I make a request? Could you make the gameplay entirely FMV based? I hope it isn't too late to do so!

    Well, I think I speak for all of us when I say that Night Trap scientifically proves FMV to be the superior gaming experience. That's what's missing from the PS3 lineup. FMV would be the 360 killer. Little known industry fact.

    After all, weīre still a year away from the scheduled release. Much can change in the meantime. Definite answers can only be given once we have come further in developement.

    I must say that this is incredible news! The Genesis/Sega CD is still one of my favorite systems ever made. When Beggar Prince came out I couldn’t believe it and that payday I hopped on-line and ordered a copy. When this game is released you can certainly expect me to do the same. At first I imagined the CD version would be the same as the cart but with better music. So I figured (minus the load times) the CD version would just be overall better. But It really sounds like each version is going to play its formats strength. So the way things are sounding, I might have to purchase both the cart and the CD version. A piece of advice though; Make sure the spells are REALLY cool. This might sound dumb, but it really makes the RPG better. I remember playing Shining Force I and II and Phantasy Star IV and thought the spells were cool. But then when my brother got a SNES and I played Final Fantasy III and Chrono Trigger I realized how awesome spells could really look. In Final Fantasy III and Chrono Trigger the anticipation of getting a new spell and casting it for the first time evoked a feeling that no Genny RPG ever gave me. So if at all possible make the spells a sight to behold. Because that will drive me to play the game "just a little longer" if not only to see how the next spell will look. Also, I have to say I love early CD games that had Red Book audio. Back in the Sega CD and Turbo Duo days the Red Book audio alone validated my purchase of the game. They just don’t compose good game tracks like that anymore. Seriously, anyone who has a Turbo Duo knows what I am talking about when I mention Y's 1-4, Lords of Thunder, Dungeon Explorer II or Valis 1-4. The Sega CD had the Red Book blessing as well with games like Lunar 1&2, Terminator, Dungeon Explorer, Android Assault, Eternal Champions:CFTDS and, in my opinion, one of the greatest sound tracks ever composed Dark Wizard. The Dark Wizard soundtrack is absolutely unbelievable. While I listened to the sound clips of Tavern RPG that were posted I was impressed at the quality. The quality was every bit as good as I could have hoped. But (this is just my opinion so please don’t hurt me) I thought the compositions were very uninspired. The music did absolutely nothing for me. I am aware that you are still working on Tavern RPG and I hope the already VERY promising game continues to get even better. On a final note, I bought Emerald Dragon for the PC engine a while back and even though I can’t read one bit Japanese and the game is like 14 years old it still blew me away with its incredible graphics, emotional cut scenes, and beautiful Red book audio. If you guys can capture even a hint of this you will have a true classic in the making.
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    Wow, long post!^^
    Well, about the sound: the tracks we presented yet were only 3 or 4 I believe, and we have already well over 25 tracks composed. It is not even sure yet if the tracks you listened to will make it to the final game.
    I am not a sound-pro myself (I am a graphics designer for the game), but what I heard so far sounded very good to me. So youīd best wait until there is new stuff to be shown.
    BTW, as a German I am a bit jealous of you: The TurboGraFX/Duo was never released here, imports are pretty expensive and in fact I have never ever heard a ingle track of a CD game for the Turbo. I must one day get one of these!^^

    I thank you very much for your interest and promise that our team is giving itīs very best to make this game a classic; I was one of the Beggar Prince-customers as well and joined TRPG-team after I played it. I hope that our project will inspire even more people to try and breathe new life into the Genesis. The success of this is up to you fans; if you support a project like ourīs I am certain it will not be the last we see of the Genny.

    I would make the obligatory skeptical post expressing doubt that this project, like so very many others of its kind, will ever be completed. But then, if it's been in the works for three years already, maybe completion is not so unfeasible after all.

    My suggestion would be to employ whatever magical ward has been applied to Beggar Prince that makes playable emulator dumps impossible, at least until you firmly believe that you'll never sell another cartridge.

    I tell you from the bottom of my heart: this project WILL definately be completed. The core-team is so determined Tavern RPG has become like a second life for us. For everyone of us it is a dream come true to make a real Mega Drive-game; and the programming side, the greatest hindrance, already is 99% done.

    Important for us is that we can count on the retro-gaming-community to accept our game. A lot of work is in this game, and we would really like this not to be our last project. If you just believe in us and buy the game once it is done nothing stands in the way of even more Genesis-goodnes!

    I'm all about that.
    With your heads buried in this game, it's probably too early but I know you dream so...
    Would your next project be an RPG as well or are you hoping to tackle another genre? It would be nice to have a few more RPGs squeezed into the Genny but I'd be just as excited to see a good shooter!

    To which I say, that's what everyone else who has attempted such a venture says before releasing a demo and subsequently vanishing forever.

    the programming side, the greatest hindrance, already is 99% done.
    ...But again, this is different. (Then again, I have that sneaking suspicion that the difference between 99% and 100% will prove to be substantially larger than one-ninety-ninth of what has already been done.)

    @DeputyMoniker
    Well, we certainly want to do more for the MD; and I think something different than an RPG would be nice to do for a change (and much easier to acomplish). But we have to finish this first.

    @Jorpho
    Actually I donīt even know of any announced MD-homebrew so far, save a few demos.
    And no, the difference between 99% and 100% is more likely to be smaller than one-ninety-ninth of what has already been done. The last elements of the program should be finished within a few days, what comes after that is just a constant tweaking and optimizing of what is already done. We really have the game running save the monster AI afaik.

    I'm not really a Genesis fan, but I think that homebrew is always good. Beggar Prince seems to be more successful then most other homebrew games that I've ever seen. Keep it up and I just might have to get a Genesis to play this stuff.

    Where have you been discussing retro gaming over the past few years? I notice you just opened an account here. I'm just curious.

    Hehe, I only got my Internet-access a year ago. Since then my retro-gaming places were Sega-16. and http://www.thelegacy.de/Start/index....rt_language=en.

    I only used DPīs online rarity guide until now...

    And to tell you the truth, I touched my MD again 2 years ago after letting it rot for years.^^

    While I am not much of a fan of RPGs and will most likely never buy this game, I would like to say that I was impressed with the quality of the screenshots in the interview.

    Good Luck!
