Mega Drive classics go on sale in your childhood bedroom to celebrate Steam Workshop support

Sega Mega Drive

Sega, purveyors of your childhood hopes, dreams and memories, have constructed a virtual bedroom from which to play all your Steam-bought classics from the Mega Drive era.

Sales not good enough? Here's the best free PC games to keep you going then.

The hub, launching on Steam April 28, will keep all of your Mega Drive games bought through Steam in a shelf in a room closely resembling your mid-90s cocoon. Sadly it's not in VR, though maybe some talented Workshoppers can attempt to fix that.

Featured amid the Sega paraphernalia scattered around the room is a CRT television to play the games on, if you so choose, as well as an authentic day and night cycle! But we all know those curtains were kept firmly shut to keep the light out of your eyes.

The real meat of Sega's Steam update, though, is that Workshop support has been added to every single Mega Drive game currently available on the platform, and to celebrate there'll a whopping 66% off the entire collection once the hub launches.

So expect to see some modified versions of your favourites spewing forth from the internet's creative corners any day now. Though if anyone can top Sonic Dream Collections we'll eat our collective Ren and Stimpy snapbacks.

Hm. So we might see Mega Drive rom hacks on the Steam Workshop? And that bedroom... I like it. I don't know why, but I'm a fan of the 'room as an menu' thing. It's not been done a whole lot and it's a little bit different than the common approach to things. I like it. SEGA was always cool and unusual though, all of their games were back in the glory days of the Dreamcast. Jet Set Radio, Shenmue, Skies of Arcadia...

I think this is just a little bit of a spark telling us that that spirit is still alive in there, somewhere. And that's pretty great.
