EON AMIGA AGA - First internal WIP test shown of a rather eye opening in-dev Amiga port

Just as I was going to bed I was given the heads up via Twitter from our good friend @edu_arana, that AmigaWave had just announced the first showing of a new Amiga port, which looks very much like the classic Shadow of the Beast, but instead is called EON. This game of which I've never heard of before, was apparently released way back in 2014 by Worderboy Bobi, as a short playable demo, inspired by games such as Shadow of the Beast or Lion Heart and classed as an action RPG with skill and items progression.

Although it looks as if the PC version was never turned into a full game ( by the website atleast), this upcoming port by AmigaWave and Goblins looks as if it really could be one to keep an eye on as developments progress. So far there's not a lot to show for the port, but atleast there's a cool WIP test video to watch, showing the game working on an Amiga 1200 stock, 020 14mhz and 2Mb Chip Ram.

UPDATE from Kikems via EAB

"EON is a game designed and published in 2014 for PC by Fran├žois Perez, also known as Wonderboy Bobi. The game was created from a PC maker and therefore we do not have a source code from which to start. The game will be recreated from scratch for Amiga AGA / CD32. We are still studying the possibility of investing time in adapting it to Vampire and AmigaNG (MorphOS, AmigaOS4, AROS, etc ...), but this is still not certain, everything will depend on the strengths that remain after finish the AGA version and the interest that we see in those systems.

In the technical section of the game, EON is designed to make use of the dualplayfield and scroll parallax for almost the entire game, thus obtaining a visual and gaming experience worthy of an AGA machine. The main development will be for AMIGA AGA with 020 to 14Mhz and 2 Mb of ram, so you will need at least one Amiga 1200 or a CD32.

The game is a mixture of RPG of adventure and action, where you will have to go obtaining a series of objectives and solving some puzzles or enigmas to be able to continue progressing in the adventure.

There is still a lot of development and work ahead, so I ask you a little patience."
