Sylph: a Silpheed remake!
Ever played classic Silpheed on PC-88?
What about playing a remake? Developed by Kevin Edward Fishburne (who is
also lonely developing a multiplayer roling game called Sanctimonia),
Sylph: Project Miyaji is a remake based on the classic game boosting
new graphics and soundtrack, however staying true to tilted perspective
There is an early,
alpha build released, and you can see the progress on Kevinīs
journal or watch the
Youtube Channel. Targeting the Linux platform, I believe that many
of us wont be able to play it very soon, unfortunately. The developer is
also planning a release on Steam (Linux) within the next few months.
Many thanks to Lorena, for the tip on this awesome news.
Hello Topaz members!
Here in Brazil we have a saying: who is alive always show up. Here am I
to bring a few updates regarding our beloved franchise. We now have a
dedicated Silpheed Alternative page (however it is very short on
content), and I've also made a few fixes on other pages. Unfortunately, I had to change my Host, so our Forum is down
and I don't know if I'll ever be able to get it running again. If you
have a question or sugestion, please send me at
. Best wishes on the new year!
101 just published what I believe to be the
most comprehensive article about the Silpheed series, ever. It
covers every game, including the latest Silpheed Alternative for the
Android OS - a game I didn't had the chance to play yet. You really
should check it out!
Here I am, getting back to update
something that was pending since september 11. I received a contribution
from Shawn, one of our visitors, to our Sound Track page. Check it out!
And thank you for all of our lonely visitors!
Some interesting news. A few weeks ago I
was "googling" Silpheed, when I found a blog from one of the few people
who worked on the original computer game,
He talks about his experience on the project (which was his first game,
by the way). Very cool. Click
and check it out!
On another topic: It's been six months
since last update? OMG! Well, I've been very busy with my graduation
(here in Brazil we call it post-graduation) and professional life, so
almost everything else is in stand-by. Anyway, our forum already have
some conversation going. I welcome any Silpheed fan out there to
Forum is Up!
Finally our forum (or should I say, "our
hangar"?) is up, so if you want to talk about Silpheed, or provide any
kind of feedback about the site, be
welcome! I'm also introducing the "Memorabilia"
page. It is a work in progress, but you already can see some very
interesting articles (it helps if you can read japanese, LOL).
On another news:
is releasing yet another version of SA-77 Silpheed. This limited edition
comes in black, with some minor white decals. See it
here. Makes me wonder if
they will release a proper SA-77J version, like the one seen in Silpheed:
The Lost Planet. Have you built any of those models? Why not share the
pictures on our forum? I've built both standard and lancer models, and
will post some pictures there very soon!
That's all for now! Live longer and
All systems green!
It is with great pleasure that I welcome
you to my Silpheed fansite. I started this project way back in 2005, and
after doing some of the graphic part, I left it down for a good time. Why
I decided to finish it now, five years later? I don't know - maybe I've
been somewhat nostalgic on the last few weeks.
There's still a lot of work to do, but I
decided to upload the site as it is now because I don't know when I will
have the time to finish the other sessions. I want to upload more
detailed information on the games and I'm also preparing an dedicated
session to memorabilia (Silpheed apparitions on vintage gaming magazines etc). You can also expect sooner or later a Forum (Bulletin
Board) to discuss all things Silpheed.
Topaz Squadron is not a big site, but Silpheed also isn't a big franchise. I
just hope you guys like what you get here. Who knows, if we get a new Silpheed game, this website
can get more and richer updates?
Oh, one last thing:
me for any gramatical error. English is not my main language :)
