During the era of the SEGA Genesis, the console delivered some truly classic beat ’em up games like Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, and Splatterhouse. A new SEGA Genesis game on Kickstarter wants to bring back the beat ’em up in a brand new 16 bit adventure.
“The Smurglian race has come to Earth and they’re not leaving until they steal our four most prized commodities: our metal music, the best coffee, cat videos, and all of the WiFi. Challenge them through unique and innovative levels inspired by real-life areas (except for the Mars stage – that’s just Will’s imagination), on a retro platform that needs new games like Earthlings need WiFi, the Sega Genesis. Join Black Forge Coffeehouse baristas Nick and Ashley, two galaxy gladiators called to arms to stop this madness and remove the Smurglian threat from Earth.
