WM's Magical Game Factory: ProjectY for Mega Drive/Genesis

It's ProjectY - the RPB you've been waiting for since the 90s! WIP @ 's Magical Game Factory.

The Origins
For the first time ever, fans of retro consoles are getting exactly the game they want! And they want a RPB!

Investors, as they are called, have used their voting power to shape ProjectY to their own liking.

Their first poll result was to make a game for the Mega Drive/Genesis. Then came the decision to make the game a RPB (Role-Playing-Brawler). The final big turn for the project was the setting, which the investors decided should be cyberpunk.

With these defining poll results, ProjectY started to take shape while additional minor polls followed. Development is currently ongoing; you can still join ProjectY and shape the game by voting, submitting your ideas and discussing the project on the boards!

40MEG
Obtained with fervor by the investors, we can guarantee the game will have a bare minimum 40 megabits cartridge. ProjectY is joining the small club of High Density Cartridges (also known as the "big, black cartridges"). This will be at least the second biggest Mega Drive/Genesis game ever, after WaterMelon's own Pier Solar! With this much storage at our disposal, we can make the ultimate 16-bit beat 'em all!

 Also obtained by the investors, the game will feature four playable characters, one of them to be unlocked.

The Context
 ProjectY takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, set in an Asian high-tech metropolis. The last survivors of the nuclear war are divided into several classes, where the most powerful have the others by the balls. This has divided the governing bodies into several fractions, where ethnic mafias and a corrupt corporation are just a few of them! As you can see, this story is filled with many possible scenarios. It will demand lots of exploring and several playthroughs to get everything out of it.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN AND INVEST?

How do I join a project?
If a project is open to join, you can join by investing at least one GEM into the project.

What are GEMS? How much do they cost?
GEMS are Watermelon's currency. As for now, one GEM is equal to 10 cents (USD) with the possibility of changing later on.
You can use GEMS to invest in a project. If you earn some GEMS, you can use them to get discounts on products, get coupons, etc.

What do I get for my investment in a project?
Magical Game Factory investments offer access to voting and conversion features.

How much do I have to invest to save myself one copy of the game?
500GEMS (USD 50) for one edition of the game reserved exclusively to Investors.

Very cool looking.  I'm thinking I must have had an account when I bought Pier Solar but I don't remember  :)

A bit of news:

We have a little video from an early demo of the game engine. Our coder Fonzie shows it. As it's just a tech demo don't mind the sprites from other games.

The final game should have about twice as many sprites on-screen.
