Video above of the ms-dos port.

Alien Odyssey is a game made by Argonaut Games (Star Fox) and released for ms-dos, here is the source code for the Saturn version, it was released anonymously on discord, at this stage it will need some extra work (devkit maybe) to see if it can be built to work.

So, the 4th link shared was nothing related Saturn.
It will be very complicated to rewrite the entire code to do it works.

4th link was the Mad Video Codec source code, unrelated to Alien Odyssey, but if somebody compiles it it might be of interest. Also it would be interesting to know who made the codec and if any games used it, I have not heard of any.

Edit: Mad Video Codec source code released for Sega Saturn

This does not appear to be Sega Saturn code. I'm seeing malloc() and stdio.h calls. I was curious to see save game parsing and there isn't any.

I see the #ifdef __SATURN__ #define. Looks like they were building for Saturn and MS-DOS from the same source.
