Title: Elansar Project - New Multi-Format Homebrew Game!

Quote from the coder Orion:

Quote
I want to introduce a new game project that I've been working on for almost 2 years, it's called Elansar.
It's an adventure game with high quality rendered 3D scene, (like myst)
I'm still working on it, but I can say that it will be made for 3 oldschool machines, the Atari Falcon, the PC Engine, AND the Jaguar !
The Jaguar version will be hopefully released on cartridge.

As it is a homebrew project, and I'm alone doing it (code, graphics, etc...), don't expect a game with 100 hours of playing ! It will be most likely one hour or so.. (maybe less if you are good at it )

[size=240]This game is now available to buy![/size]

Well for the Atari Falcon computer anyway  :P

It's great news though as I am sure other versions won't be too far behind now. The programmer has released 2 new videos, one is the making of and the other is of the gameplay.

It looks like Myst but with the plot / theme of Lost.

I will buy it when it when it comes out on the Jaguar.

News on the Jag version from the programmer Orion:

Quote
I don't know if anyone here will attend the Silly Venture 2012 in poland next week (7-9 december)
I will be there, and guess what, with a preview of Elansar for Jaguar
A demo version will probably be available for download after that, so you can test it on flash card or emulator before pre-ordering the game
If everything goes fine, the cartridge should be available by April-May 2013

No pre-order page yet, I still need some times to clear out how to make the full package, and choose a distributor.
Maybe I will make a page with pre-order intention (by e-mail) to see how much cartridge I should make.

It will be posted at the RGCD site when it is ready to sell according to what I've read.  Yeah, I was disappointed with the choice of plastic box as well.  Maybe that's for cost savings as it is likely much easier to produce.
Title: Re: Elansar Project - New Multi-Format Homebrew Game!
Post by: rush6432 on July 27, 2013, 18:09:37 PM
Ill say this much, its all about saving time and labor really... cost does factor in.

The only reason we got away with boxes on blackout cart version was because shawn has access to printers to allow this kinda stuff. Not to mention the pain in the ASS it is to fold, cut, glue everything perfectly or use very thin double sided tape to keep the box together and have it look good at the same time...

I dont blame him, but yes it looks crappy... If your going to do it, might as well do the full thing and go all out. People are happy to pay for that stuff..  We sold out all copies in 24 hrs for blackout on cartridge... (48-50ish).

If i had another game i wanted to release on jaguar id do it the same way all over again.

Oh ive got a few that are half or more than half done, dont think if they'll be released though. I dont know that its worth the time and effort anymore for a scene that gorf describes all too well... 

Not to mention most if not all have been ported over to other platforms anyway...

unless the exchange rate on google is wrong, 90 euros converted to dollars is 119.32 and the exchange rate says 1 euro = 1.33 dollars.

90 euros?  I know the price is 45 pounds. 
Title: Re: Elansar Project - New Multi-Format Homebrew Game!
Post by: rush6432 on July 29, 2013, 17:49:35 PM
Last night around midnight here central time i added 1 copy to cart to see the price and it was 90 euros... so unless they did that based on the amount of copies left or whatnot (cheaper the more copies sold ect) then thats a possibility. But i saw 90 euros when i tried to see the price by adding to cart as it wasnt displayed directly on the site..
Title: Re: Elansar Project - New Multi-Format Homebrew Game!
Post by: TrekMD on July 29, 2013, 18:28:11 PM
That's weird.  I just checked and, even though it is sold out right now, it still says 45.00.
Title: Re: Elansar Project - New Multi-Format Homebrew Game!
Post by: rush6432 on July 29, 2013, 20:42:29 PM
Odd.. i see where it says 45 euro...

Must have been a cart error or something, it said 1 copy and listed 90 as the total...

Oh well, not that i care to obtain a copy of it. Just found it interesting....

Yep... they said the same thing about blackout and many other releases outside of their own trash.

Speaking on another note,  Id be interested to see if another world makes it into the hands of everyone that pre-ordered it...

I have a cart of this already and not sure the enhancements are enough to warrant buying the CD too. Good for those who missed out on the cartridge run though.

The problems have been with the other title released simultaneously, Yopaz.  Those are going to be replaced.

I believe they'll be sent automatically.  I got my CD from the US vendor Orion recommended and they are being sent to him to then send to the US customers.  For the EU customers, they are going out from Orion.
