Yes, the game works fine on PAL and NTSC  :)

So it will be the exact same game as the Brazilian version? Which will come with English language instructions? I collect O2 homebrews, and try to pick up non O2 homebrews when they work in ntsc. It's getting confusing...

Cartridges launched in Europe will have the Videopac cover and colors will be compatible with the European PAL system. The Odyssey version is compatible with Brazilian and American consoles and will be released on the website https://experienciaodyssey.com.br/ along with the Brazilian version of Wildlife. To be clear, both cartridges run on either system, there is only a slight difference in color adjustment.

I just went to the Brazilian website. Great stuff! Unfortunately, when I put a mug in my shopping cart and checked for shipping price, it said no delivery options to my address in the USA. So I'm guessing they wouldn't be able to ship a game to me either...

Hi Daddy. The brazilian version will  be in portuguese, however, just like "Floresta Assombrada" it will have "The English Guide"
http://experienciaodyssey.com.br/florestaassombrada/
It is still part of the project to have the website and games in English, but there is still a lot of work and little time.


Title: Re: SANDSTORM for VIDEOPAC
Post by: Doug on September 21, 2021, 02:40:19 PM
Will the Videopac version have English instructions for the Brits?


Title: Re: SANDSTORM for VIDEOPAC
Post by: Rafael on September 21, 2021, 02:51:56 PM
To get an idea, the "English manual" appears at the mark of 3.30, in our friend Márcio's unboxing:

I come from Germany. So for me is a Videopac release from Marc, like to get a game in the eighties from Philips.  8)
I don`t want to miss my Videopac style. So I am really happy.

But I have the feeling here, that our Odyssey2 fans don`t understand why Marc could not release (like he did for years in the past with an always wonderful release) a game in Odyssey2 style.
And to be honest, I also don`t understand that. We have really not much fans out there and now there is only confusion. And this could not be good.

To make this clear. Marc`s Videopac releases have always an english manual !

Post by: Doug on September 21, 2021, 08:14:21 PM
If they both have English manuals, which one best leverages the O2's futuristic, military grade technology in terms of color use?

Though I'm thinking of ordering Rafael's, just because it would be cool to have a Brazilian homebrew release in my collection... Plus I can order a mug with it.

A few things need to be cleared up. The Odyssey Brasil group and the Experiencia Odyssey website are not my projects. I started some projects like jogs and Odyssey Aventura magazine that were my dreams. Of course I've always wanted to release games in Brazil (and in all countries - if it was an easy question). Like me, other people dream of new games, magazines etc being released and above all with Philips quality. The entire project to make this dream possible was the commitment of other people, specifically Victor, Leo, Ricardo and Márcio. The whole project was done by them, you know, new cartridges were designed, new boards were designed, there's an artist contract to make each cover. This entire project has a cost and for the project to continue, although it is a great passion for everyone, it has to cover its costs, or the dream ends. For example, we are awaiting sales of upcoming releases to raise funds for the arts of Merlin and  Monkey Jump. Understand that when we talk about dreams, we are talking about a beautiful collection, something that can be put alongside classic games and have the same feeling. Soon, you will be able to see the cover of TrenchRunner, this one amazing. Even the cover of Death Race will be redone. And soon, a beautiful poster with the game collection. That said, we're still doing a general review of game reception and the best way to keep the project alive while making the games easier for everyone to access.

I will not release Odyssey2 homebrew by Rafael anymore.  8)

Woah...this is disappointing to say the least! I love supporting the homebrew community and as an Odyssey2 owner, I prefer that style. Correct me if I'm wrong, and perhaps Rafael can chime in on this, but if the only way to get Odyssey2 style homebrews moving forward is to go through Brazil, I'm guessing it will be in Brazilian style with no "2" in Odyssey and most of the box and contents will be in Portuguese, with just an insert for English instructions (as that appears to be the case at the 3:30 mark of the video Rafael posted), instead of the full, multi-page manual in English? I wish I could read and speak multiple languages, but alas, I cannot. More details on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

100% this. I see where Rafael responded after your post but I didn't really understand his post...any additional details or explanation that could be provided would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

I'll summarize: The entire graphic design, art direction is the work of Odyssey Brasil.
The project includes, in most cases, the re-release of games that have already been released in Europe.
There won't be many other titles going forward. Nothing has changed, other titles have already been released by others,
such as CCC, Packrat, Tim Duarte, Atari Compendium, Coté Gamers recently, all deserve the chance to release games...
I actually think this is good for VIdeopac. A lot of people have found out that new games are being released through other distributors.

Thanks for your reply, Rafael. I think what had some people worried was it seemed as though we would no longer have the opportunity to purchase your games in Odyssey2-style in English language boxes and complete manuals. Will you be working with a vendor in the United States moving forward? Or will your games only be released via Odyssey Brasil in the Odyssey styling similar to how titles were originally released in Brazil?

I agree that it's great to see more and more publishers of Odyssey/Videopac games, and it seems as though Odyssey Brasil/Odyssey Clube have some exciting things coming up in the future, but I hope your American fanbase isn't forgotten in all of this :)

Thank you very much. It is a great joy for us to be able to carry out this work, as it has been done. It was always my dream to bring Odyssey back to life, new games, magazines, posters, cards that are being produced, a lot of cool stuff and thanks to you it has been possible. Of course we want to improve and there is a long way to go, we want everyone to enjoy the site, too. There is a long way to go, but the first step was taken with our English pages. Little by little, we will be translating the site's content to make it easier for everyone.

In the meantime I'll order the European version of Sandstorm...

Today I had time to go to Egypt.The graphic is amazing for our system. And this all, without my beloved plus gfx.

The pyramids and the sprites are wonderful. The old gods look so great and all the love for detail like the flickering torch and that the spiders and snakes have different colors in the different pyramids. Again a wonderful game Rafael and a great release Marc. Thanks both to make this again possible.

But for me is the actor like in Wildlife Indiana Jones. Next time I will hear the soundtrack of Indiana Jones while I am playing this game.  ;D
