Announcing: "Novagen - Volume 1"


A new compilation of games to be released at PRGE2023 and then shortly after via the AtariAge store, featuring "Backlash" and "Encounter!"


To me, Paul Woakes was a coding God, and it has been an honor to work on bringing these games to the Jaguar. 


Here's some footage from the titles - enjoy!

Another day closer to seeing the AtariAge store update with a pile of new releases, so here is another time lapse.  This time, the creation for the box art of Novagen Volume 1, a pair of fun arcade shooters that have made their way over to the Jaguar.


I grew up with an Atari ST and I never knew these games existed until @CyranoJ and @Albert approached me about doing this 3D illustration and the layout/design for the packaging/manual.  I was aware of the Mercenary games, other games by the late Paul Woakes, so it was a bit of treat to discover Encounter and Backlash for the first time, and that they were both making it from the ST to my favorite cat. 


To be a part of this migration was also a treat, and opportunity I'm very grateful for.  I hope people enjoy this new official collection for the Jaguar, and the small recorded bit of my processes of adding to the total experience these memorable games.  (Don't forget to look at the manual when you get this, there are some additional renders for the various enemies and tank to look at and enjoy).
