Dylan The Spaceman - Coming to an Amiga Near You Soon!
This originally started out life as a Dangermouse themed arcade adventure, but the subject matter soon changed following the fallout from the Smurfgate saga.
The change has brought with it a set of never before seen characters and environments, and a new mascot to the Amiga platform, Dylan The Spaceman.
Created by Chris Clarke, who is using the Reality construction system, Dylan The Spaceman is a Dizzy-style arcade adventure, where objects collected in one location are used to progress in another.
Chris has been dishing out regular progress updates for the project on his active Amiga PD Facebook page. Here you can check out all the latest work in progress screenshots along with developer notes Chris uploads.
Development of the game seems to be progressing well, and at present the game is pencilled-in for a Summer 2015 release. Chris is keen to get the game up and running on as many Amiga platforms as possible, and a work in progress version has already been successfully tested on the CD32 games console.
This really looks like a game to keep an eye out for, and could be one of the Amiga gaming highlights of the year.
I'll have further updates on Dylan The Spaceman as and when they surface.
