Set in the realm of Tanglewood, the game follows a young creature, Nymn, separated from the pack after the sun sets. Unable to get back to the safety of the family's underground home, Nymn must find a way to survive the night terrors and get to morning. Tanglewood’s world is a dangerous one after dark; guiding Nymn you must use your skills of evasion, traps and trickery to defeat predators.

The game looks like a rather interesting platform adventure with visuals that really do invite the ageing Megadrive hardware to do some new tricks, and the team behind Tanglewood has already added some pretty intriguing tiers for backers. One of these is the ability to download a ROM of Tanglewood for use on Everdrives and emulators, which is a really cool thing to do.
Henshin Engine article published here at the Junkyard several months ago. However, the mention of genuine Dreamcast development tools, completely reworked visuals and Rayman/Flashback/Another World-style gameplay does sound intriguing. If you'd like to see a Dreamcast port of Tanglewood, you need to act fast and help the project smash the current target of £48,000 by a not insignificant £10,000 worth of funding. You have mere days to make this a reality.
