Nearly 33 years after the Sega Genesis first launched, we have a new game to try out! Demons of Asteborg released last month and can easily work in your favorite retro handheld. If your device can run Genesis games (and the Picodrive emulator), it’ll likely run this game, too.

Find it on Steam:

  1. I can't wait to get Good Boy Galaxy on my Retro Handheld. The Kickstarter is still going and still has 21 days left!

  2. How do you know which game on steam you bought can play on Anbernic Device?

  3. You got a rogue discord sound in this video lol

  4. I tried the ROM on my Mega Everdrive X7 and real hardware and it doesn't work (starts but can't be played). 🙁
    Didn't try it on my 351V yet but will do so.

  5. Cool! Now, before I go and purchase it on steam, does it also work on the raspberry pi. Reason I ask is because you only mentioned Arkos

  6. This is really cool, But the dev should lower the price of the rom, people will end up pirating the rom, and many gamers want devs to release new game roms for the old system and are willing to support them but the price is not suitable, most of the people who got retroarch or reto emulators on their Vita,WiiU,Android wont pay 10-20 usd for a rom, i know they would love to support devs to keep making games but the devs should lower the price, if this catches up we will see many devs releasing roms for retro games and this is a game changer

  7. Me that is working a Gameboy Homebrew Right Now: :0

  8. That Discord squawk at 1:32 had me scrambling to see what I'd been notified about!

  9. How many hours will I get out of this game? Replay value? I don't know if $25 justifies what I'm getting. So far every video I've seen about this talks about more of the gimmick of it being able to be played on original hardware rather than any gameplay.

  10. I love how active the homebrew devs are on several platforms.

  11. Is there a good list of new games for retro handhelds? Love that people are developing for these OG platforms!

  12. Is there a ways to get this running on OpenDingux based retro handhelds?

  13. I've been having some SRAM issues which prevent me from saving my progress in the game…

  14. Love the subtle chicken references hidden in the video haha! 🐓🐱

  15. Some say it resembles Akumajou Dorakyura Ekkusu: Gekka no Yasoukyoku. A very famous metroidvania from what I've heard. Never played it before 😉

  16. I love that people are still making games for the Sega Genesis, there are a lot of new great games to play!

  17. So awesome!! I asked you two weeks ago on Facebook how to run Demons on the RG351m… and today you surprise us with this Video! Thank you so much!

  18. If it wasn’t for Retro Gaming Corps I wouldn’t be enjoying my RG351M on 351 Elec Reborn 😭 wish you millions of success brother! 🙏🏾

  19. I just finished putting together a wishlist on steam composed almost entirely of homebrew games like Alwa's Awakening, Xeno Crisis, Demons of Asteborg, etc, that I want on my retro gaming handheld. And then of course you drop this video. Great work. You helped me put shovel knight on my rg351v a little while ago. I was gonna attempt to figure out the homebrews on my own but you beat me to it.

  20. Hey, I know this has nothing to do with the video but I already asked on the video relating to the same subject and no one answered me, so anyways, when I enter my RG-351V's Micro SD card into an SD card reader to follow the steps, I didn't find a bios folder in the games partition, just one called "bezels", please help and thanks.

  21. Cheers for this Russ, I imagine this will make its way to Evercade also.

  22. It feels to me you can make anything sound interesting.

  23. Great video!

    I'd like to know if there's any way to update the AM2R for the RG351P?

  24. I don't know if you've covered this or not but regardless I'd love to see you make a video on the latest AM2R. The game game is hands down amazing.

  25. For those thinking you might go online and find a pirated version of this game, I tried and didn't find anything except the demo. Please support the developer and purchase the stand alone rom or purchase on Steam. Thanks.

  26. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I am so stoked to play this on my RP2.

  27. Giving this a try. Might get it on Switch if it goes on sale

  28. Great video thanks Russ! I definitely recommend checking out a new-ish NES game (2019 if memory serves) it's called "MicroMages" I absolutely loved it and was unable to put it down. It's up to 4 players so it should be playable over Wi-fi for 2. players.

  29. Cheers Russ, very cool, hope it's a success and they can do some more.

  30. Hmm, tempted to buy it in steam, if for no other reason then to always have it when I want it, but buying the rom directly from the developer supports them more.

  31. If you're interested in some more modern Sega Genesis games check out Xeno Crisis, Tanzer, and Ultracore.

  32. I really appreciate that there are people making games for retro consoles. I’ve often seen kickstarters for these and love that these games are being offered as physical copies as well as downloadable roms for emulation. I hope to hear more about these. I would also like to know if there are any stores specialize in these new retro game roms for purchase.

  33. If you haven’t already can you make a video for the Sony PSP?

  34. So… Dumb Question: Does this mean that the Demons of Asteborg game on steam is basically just an emulator? And, if so, can you take one of your other genesis roms, rename it to "rom.bin", swap it into the DoA game directory, launch DoA from Steam, and it play Vectorman or something of the sort? There is no reason you would ever seriously want to do that instead running retroarch or some other emulator on your PC, but it just has me curious.

  35. Russ please help!… I have the RG351P with stock SD card and stock O.S…. When I try to load up a game it will load but I get a message saying "Generic Parralel Port device (0/0) not configured"… Any fix for this? Or do I just need a new SD card?

  36. P. S…. None of my buttons or sticks work after this message and I am forced to hard reset or turn power off.
