Price for upcoming unreleased SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis game ‘It Came from the Desert’ revealed


Back in July we shared the news that the unreleased SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis game It Came from the Desert was finally seeing release by way of the efforts of Watermelon Games and the original developers Cinemaware. The game, originally slated for a 1990 release, was deemed by publisher EA to be too difficult and was troubled by a game crashing bug. Watermelon Games promises that both issues will be fixed.

Until now we did not know the price of the game, and as our headline suggests, well now we do! For $55, shipping not included, fans of long lost 16-bit titles will receive the limited edition release which will contain a case and slipcover, manual, poster, and of course the cartridge. Cinemaware promises that this price is final and will not change, and that more news is to come after the holidays including the start of pre-orders in January 2015.

    Holy crap is that awful artwork!

    Yeah, I gotta say although it’s great news that the game will be released, the artwork is distractingly bad. Especially coming from Cinemaware, who were all about raising the bar for graphics and artwork in games. Come on, guys, step it up!

    Watermelon is totally untrustworthy. Waited for Sega Dreamcast port of Pier Solar for ages (made preorder and its still not released)). After lost patience, asked for refund. They didn’t return the money. Ands its impossible to make claim in Paypal because order is made more than 45 days ago. So be really careful….
