Looks like a fun game. Just took a look around their website and I see they are releasing a homebrew Turbografx game sometime this year on Hu card!
It says the game features all original artwork by Paul Weller (Sunteam)... am I correct to assume that that's fellow member sunteam_paul? 
Definitely be watching for this!

Hey all

Pyramid Plunder was a game Aetherbyte started before I really got into doing PC Engine artwork. The in-game graphics and title screen was already done before I jumped on board.

What I did produce for the game was very hard work but rewarding - I did a set of full screen pictures that appear at the end of each set of levels, as well as art for the end sequence. I also designed the packaging and CD art. The cover illustration was pencilled by Acadia Rose, then lined, coloured and painted by myself afterwards.

Here's how the cover art developed:








Arkhan (the programmer and head of Aetherbyte) is back fiddling with Atlantean at the moment which will be the first ever homebrew HuCARD. That was my first full PCE project where I handled all the art and was a great learning experience. That should be out this year, after which we carry on working on our versions of Jungle Hunt, Joust and an arcade adventure for the PCE (among other things).

The Turbo Duo/Turbo CD is a Super CD-ROM2

Cheers for the update fella..

Very interesting to see how the art develops.

Will the Hucard game work on a Turbografx?

Wow! Must have been thinking of the very last NEC CD system. Was it the Super FX?

I think there will be a choice between an US and a Japanese card, it's only a couple of data bits that make the difference but I don't think there's a way of making it a universal rom.
