SMS Homebrew Animus XS is Now Called Mantissa Experiment

A while back, we posted about an SMS homebrew game named Animus XS that was in the works by French developer Furrtek. Since that original posting, the developer has continued work on the game and recently changed it’s name to Mantissa Experiment.

The game cartridge will feature an additional chip in it now to help with sprite animation.

The prototype cover art was recently released as well.


The developer promises another video update on the game soon!

New SMS Homebrew Game in Development: Animus XS

French developer Furrtek has evidently been working on a new homebrew Sega Master System game, Animus XS. From what I gather, the developer wants to make a Space Harrier-style game featuring mechs. The current plan is to finish the game, manufacture some physical copies for those who want it, and then release the ROM for all once sales are completed. Very cool!

You can check out a demo of some of the work so far below and see some additional items at their website here. It looks pretty good for something that was uploaded only a couple of weeks into the game’s production.

I have no real experience with the French language, so I apologize for any errors here! Google translate can only do so much!
