Unnamed project (Atari Jaguar)

Unnamed project

So here we are. The blog is up and running. You may wonder what we will do next? We feed the cat, the Atari Jaguar that is. We do exactly what we came for. We make games. And to give you something to return for, feast your eyes on the pixely goodness. This still unnamed project features our HalMock FurBall character.

Hello World!

Three, two, one- launch! Hold on to your hats! We’re blasting through the aether at crispy clear resolution and in color. Right to the reception terminal in your home for you to enjoy. Ready to blow the dust out of your trusty TV set. Bringing you the finest in interactive multimedia home entertainment of the past century.

We are Starcat Devocean and this is our cozy little spot on the aether. We’re a German homebrew / indie game development team with a soft spot for abandoned system such as the Atari Jaguar and Sega Dreamcast. Haven’t heard of those? Ever?! Well, if you’re less oldschool, don’t fear. We’ll figure out a way for you to enjoy what we create. When the time has come, we’ll point you towards a proper emulator or for the less techy and geeky, a Windows build here and there. That should work, right? If all else fails you can always enjoy our transmissions here on the blog and look at some neat low-resolution, full-color pictures.
Low-resolution?! Yup. And nah, we’re not intentionally crippling our artwork to spite the HD lovers. Our artwork always is low-resolution. We may even blow it up, but you’ll see a lot of pixels. Better get used to it.

Everything we do is lovingly hand-crafted and almost as fine as you may remember it from back in the day. Almost?!
Hey, give us a break- we’re talking about memories here! Memories are untouchable. We can’t do magic you know.
However we’d do our best to create games that draw you into their blocky worlds full of weird characters and strange tales. Join us for a super fun time! Oh and please don’t try what you see in our games at home, kids. Pixels don’t mind to be rearranged, people pretty much do!
We believe realism should be off-limits in games. We want to show you something you won’t find in the world out there. This is supposed to be an entertaining journey after all!

Best of all, what we do is free. We do all this in our spare time as a hobby, because we believe creating fun games should be fun and games in the first place.
