Time has come my dear CD-i… It is now time to read something new, something exciting!
Yes, this is it, TwBurn’s is now selling his first Philips CD-i homebrew game Nobelia, right here.
It all started on February 2021, when he became curious about what he could do for the CD-i, beside his USB2CDi, he jumped into an adventure many of us would though it was impossible…
In September of the same year a playable demo was ready and now in March 2022 the game is complete! In just 1 year…
A handful of testers including us did a massive bug hunt in a very short time, it was almost an online tracking and solving issues with many builds released and burned discs for the good of the Community. We can now guarantee compatibility with most part (to not say all of them) for PAL and NTSC players.
35€ for Europe, 37,50€ for Europe (non-UE) and 40€ for Worldwide (here).
If you are from the USA, you can go directly to our friends at Good Deal Games.
Buy the physical release and you will also get access to a digital copy to burn on a CD-R.
After all tested and working properly, TwBurn begun the game’s artwork and showed to the world he is not only good in hardware and programming, but also in digital design, and the final result is just astonishing! Look at that…
Let’s talk a little bit about the game:
I’ve got the privilege to play the complete game along the tests, and I am still amazed how cool it is… I stil wonder why back in the 90’s, nobody got a similar idea…?
Nobelia is a Bomberman game into a Legend of Zelda’s looking world.
“After investigating a portal that has opened up in your backyard, you find yourself transported to a new land. All of your wit and courage is needed to explore this place and seek out the tools needed to return home. And maybe, if you’re skilled and observant enough, you can find the seven golden coins that have been scattered throughout the world according to some legends.”
This is how he resumes the game.
Find all the coins and win a signed copy!
“The first person to find all seven coins, open all the chests and complete the game 100% will win a signed copy of Nobelia, as well as a yet to be determined small prize. In order to be eligible, a screenshot or photo of the ending screen and/or highscore screen at the “100%” tab must be supplied, together with a (small) description where, and how each of the seven coins were found in game. These can be mailed to email@example.com.”
Thank you TwBurn, and thank you all testers!
All I can say is a massive ”WOW” – the game looks incredible, the packaging so professional and I just can’t wait to play the new version – after enjoying the demo immensely. Well written Omegalfa and HUGE congrats, kudos and thanks to TwBurn for producing this masterpiece for our beloved CD-I and putting it firmly back on the map!! Thanks too, to Omegalfa and everyone who rigorously tested the game. Superb stuff!
…..and how cool to have a prize available 🙂 Just like the old days (Ultimate Noah’s Ark, Making the Grade) and in CD-I Magazine – fantastic!!
