Wampus is an overhead arcade narrative adventure game developed for the Nintendo Entertainment System -- yes, the original NES!

Wampus takes place in the world of Irata, first introduced in the obscure economic simulator game M.U.L.E in 1983.

Irata is a planet invaded by colonialists farming and mining the land for its natural resources. These resource-stripping activities threaten the local flora and fauna, especially the Mountain Wampus, who get hunted for their treasure.

As a young wampus, players set out to rid Irata of the settler invaders and restore harmony to the land. While a fun lark, Wampus explores themes of environmentalism, conservationism, stewardship of the land, and the destructive nature of colonialism.

This game is fully playable on an actual NES. You can use either an Everdrive, a PowerPak, or flash an empty cart, as long as each has mapper 30 support.

Yes, the NES has a pretty prolific group of programmers. This game looks cool, which is why I wanted to share it.
