Charles Doty, the programmer of Frog Feast CD-i, is a busy man: Considering lots of new ideas for the future of Rastersoft, while today this advertisement reached our way, promoting the CD-i version even more. Charles: "I'm pondering the future direction of RasterSoft and how to bring some quality games to the CD-I. Developing homebrew games on a non-commercially viable system does has some limitations; we do not have the time or resources to produce a full scale commercial style release. To compensate for this we want to keep the price as low as possible, narrow the focus to produce the highest quality game and, spread the cost over several game systems. I am trying to determine if the Mastertronic model, of producing smaller games at a 'smaller' price, would fit in the homebrew market. I have looked into the possibility of doing a Super Offroad type game, and found some decent material to base the game on. I like the vehicles, I just need to find a good tileset or 3D model for the backgrounds.
