In The Line Of Fire - Coming Soon!

Posted by PH3NOM on Oct 16, 2016 at 12:30pm - 30 Comments

So we have been making some large hints about the game we have been working on for Dreamcast, and now we have officially announced the name is "In The Line Of Fire"

This is a brand new First-Person Shooter exclusive to the Sega Dreamcast, featuring Single-Player and Multi-Player game modes.
The engine is not a port, but a brand new engine designed specifically for the Dreamcast.

We have released a very early access build of the game to select groups to spread awareness, and so far I am pleased with the response.
As I said, the build released is very early access and I can not stress how much more polished the final version will be.
If our project is successfully funded, we will pour our hearts and resources into this game and deliver something very special for Dreamcast fans indeed!

Thanks to our friends over at dc-hub:

And it seems some cool guys have started a thread on Reddit and Assembler Games

Not to forget to mention our critics over at Dreamcast Junkyard

A feature not included in the demo that has been released, today I share a first look at the Multi-Player mode:

At this point, our plan is to launch a Kickstarter project for $45k USD to allow us to put the needed resources into making this a reality.

I would like to hear from the community here, are you interested?

Thanks for taking a look my friends and please spread the word!

Thanks to various folks on the forum, I've finished a Dreamcast version of my Nintendo DS homebrew Space Invaders clone:

It's a fairly close approximation of the original arcade game, but don't try to insert quarters into your Dreamcast.

Features:

  • Aliens to shoot!
  • UFOs to shoot!
  • Enemy fire to avoid (or shoot)!
  • Shields to hide behind (or shoot)!

Ecco II: Sentinels of the Universe - Playable beta Found

Posted by I.M. Weasel on Oct 06, 2016 at 4:28pm - 2 Comments

The collectors over at http://hiddenpalace.org have come upon and made available a downloadable, playable rip from their beta copy of the unreleased game Ecco II: Sentinels of the Universe!

Here is a quote from their website:

This game features a few playable levels via level select with a complete working debug mode. There is no music and sound but perhaps there are leftovers on the disc. Keep in mind, development on the game had only just begun before it was canceled, so this might be perhaps all there is in terms of playable builds

Go here to get all the info and grab a copy for yourself to try out:

Chu Chu Rocket back Online

Posted by cube_b3 on Jun 09, 2016 at 10:16pm - 1 Comments


The hardcore Dreamcast players will know that it’s still possible to play some Dreamcast games online, thanks to the efforts of the folks over at Dreamcast Live. If you want to figure out how to get your own Dreamcast to go online, check out this video right here. A number of Dreamcast games are playable online through this method, including Phantasy Star Online, Quake III Arena, Starlancer, and 4×4 Evolution.

Dreamcast Live recently announced that ChuChu Rocket! has been brought back online, thanks to the efforts of Jonas Karlsson.

Thanks to the efforts of Jonas Karlsson (the same guy behind the Dreamarena server which allows you to play Toy Racer via dial-up), the server software has been reverse engineered. Jonas is hosting his own server which anyone can connect to by simply setting your DNS server to 46.101.91.123. This is the default DNS server for DreamPi users, so if that’s your connection method of choice, you don’t have to change anything. . When asked for a username and password, enter anything (they aren’t saved in the current implementation of the server). The server software and source code will be released to the public at some point so that it can be hosted by anyone and preserved.

According to Karlsson and Dreamcast Live, the server is still a “proof-of-concept” , so expect bugs while playing online. The server is currently experiencing some issues too, so you might have to wait a bit before they fix it. This is an amazing feat and I commend everyone who helped bring ChuChu Rocket! back online!

Cool Herders Full Playthrough

Posted by cube_b3 on Apr 23, 2016 at 9:39pm - 0 Comments


The legendary Tursi from Harmless Lion and lead developer of Cool Herders discovered that the indie Dreamcast game works flawlessly with a PC Emulator. So he decided to play the whole game from start to finish and offer us, his commentary.

The video contains spoilers, so it is recommended for those who have beaten the game. If you haven't, might want to finish the game first.

Nonetheless, it is nice to find a nice high res video of a Goat classic on the internet.
