30 years after the console went on sale, a new Sega Mega Drive game has been released
The nostalgia with this game is STRONG, and best of all, you don't need a Mega Drive to play it.
In case you didn't know, the re-release of older consoles is kind of a big thing right now.

The return of the Sega Mega Drive has already proven to be hugely popular, but now they're going one step further with it.
According to the makes of the game, Big Evil Corporation (great company name, btw), this is what you can expect:
"TANGLEWOOD is a brand new and original game for the SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis, to be released on cartridge following its successful Kickstarter campaign. A true 16-bit, nostalgic platforming experience running on genuine SEGA hardware, that will make fans of gaming's golden era feel warm and fuzzy.
"Set in a fictional world, the game follows a young creature, Nymn, who is separated from the family pack after the sun sets. Unable to get back to the safety of the underground home, Nymn must find a way to survive the night terrors and get to morning. TANGLEWOOD’s world is a dangerous one after dark, and Nymn must use skills of evasion, special abilities, traps and trickery to defeat predators."
