Unreleased SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive game ‘It Came from the Desert’ getting official release by Watermelon Games

maxresdefault

It Came from the Desert is a 1989 computer game by Cinemaware and later got ports, of them being on the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive that was sadly cancelled before its release date in 1990. The SEGA 16-bit version was set to be different than the original by having custom power ups that where created by collecting machinery pieces, changing main protagonist who in the original was a scientist, now you are a teenage pest control worker named Buzz, and more.

Watermelon Games have announced that they will be working with the original developers Cineaware to bring an official limited release of ‘It Came From the Desert’. One of the main issues with the main game was that it was way too hard, Watermelon games said they will be tweaking the game to make it more enjoyable and will also be fixing a game crashing bug (reason it wasn’t officially released by EA).

  1. I have it for the Amiga 500.

    I like that Watermelon is doing things like this, but how about they finish a project before taking on yet another one.

    Pier Solar HD isn’t out (and going on almost a year overdue), they took on publishing for DC version of Elysian Shadows (which mainly splits focus and time), and don’t they have a project in development for both the SNES and Genesis for quite a while now?

    I’m surprised that they weren’t working on a SEGA CD version since they made a CD version of the game for the Turbo-Grafx 16, and it became a completely different game. The fact they got the original developer on board to make a limited run of Genesis carts is pretty surprising too.
