Some fantastic news about a new and free Sega Saturn Game released:
SPREAD THE WORD
Return Fire originally came out for the 3DO, and was a bit like Mass Destruction, but with a bit more flag capturing. Actually a lot more. Quite a decent game, it was, and a Saturn version was completed, then scrapped. This is sort of the "lost" Saturn game, you might say, though there are a few more. Here's why the project was never completed, according to the developer, Prolific.
"The game was finished for the Sega Saturn. At about that time, Hitachi made a Saturn system that was not 100% compatible with Sega's, and the game did not run correctly on it.
We were asked to make the changes which would allow it to run on the "HI-Saturn," and after a bit of back-and-forth, we even received a loaner HI-Saturn test system. But, did not do this work because the project was stopped because the publisher did not believe the Saturn was going to make it. The Saturn version of Return Fire was therefore never manufactured on "protected" CDs and therefore never released."
But the game was finished, and through a lot of legwork, Mr. Saturn at Sega-Saturn.net has released it for download. You must have a chipped saturn (or emulator I suppose) in order to make this work. The game ships with a crapload of languages: english, german, french, spanish, portuguese, japanese, italian, korean, arabic, and russian. There's also full cover art and documentation if you want to make an actual retail-like version. Very cool news for Saturn fans - a new, full game in 2007!
