LIZARDPAINT is a brand new 16-bit tool for your SEGA Genesis / Megadrive / メガドライブ

While this tool still is under development, you can already do quite a bit with it.

Here are the features available:

  • 15 colours available (+ white background): that's more than Mario Paint!
  • canvas is 38*23 tiles big: that's 304*184 pixels of pure joy!
  • 4 tools available: pen, filling pot, eraser and eye dropper: you're fully loaded!
  • 2 shapes (round or square) and 9 different sizes for brushes: be subtle or be bold!

You can use LIZARDPAINT on SEGA Genesis / Megadrive / メガドライブ, SEGA Nomad,  Analogue Mega SG, MiSTer FPGA or any other compatible machine.

Alternatively, you can simply use an emulator including mouse support such as BlastEm. This works very well and is fun enough to keep you entertained.

Share your setup if it differs: it may help others!

While this release is offered to you for free, we appreciate every donation. Our objective is to eventually deliver a reliable, safe and modern way of using a mouse on an actual SEGA Megadrive / Genesis console.

BIG thanks to the following people who helped us so far (A>Z):

SPECIAL thanks to Krikzz (inventor of Everdrive flashcarts for many consoles you can buy at https://everdrive.me/cartridges/) and Goati who took time to do a test for me when I had no Mega Mouse.

LIZARDRIVE's visual identity was made by the very talented Gunpog.
