Dorke and Imp - New Super Nintendo Homebrew!

[size=140]Dorque and Imp was a game developed by Norse, a Swedish game developer company of the early 90?s. It turns out that Norse was not a licensed developer, and were looking for a licensed publisher to pick up Dorque and Imp for some time, then the project was cancelled. Piko Interactive were able to come into an agreement with Peter Waher the original developer of Dorke and Imp, and received a copy of the source code, which was an old back up and not the latest version of the game (as Peter describes it). They analyzed the source code, and realised that were a lot of tools and parts missing, and although it still had hope, it was going to be a lot of work to get the game completed. However, the source code had 3 different compiled binaries that were playable on any SNES emulator. From there they were able to find additional assets of the game that were not included on the ROMs inside the source code files. These are elements like menu, music, extra levels, and slideshows. After several hours of working on through rom hacking, we can proudly say that the game is about 80-85% completed.[/size]

That looks pretty good!  Maybe when it is finished and released, someone can do a review for it.  Sad news about the designer.  He died young! 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...
