4 possible New Games on Dreamcast

Post by Orion_ » Mon Nov 24, 2014 2:03 am

Hello,

I'm Orion_ and I'm a game programmer and fan of retro gaming.
I develop on a lot of retro console, and I made some games for Atari Jaguar, Falcon, Playstation 1, and also on Android and PC.

I recently started to develop for the Dreamcast, and I want to know if people would be interested by some of my games that I could port on the Dreamcast.

I currently have 4 games I could port:

Image Image

"Elansar" and its sequel "Philia", These are two adventure games, based on 3D rendering computer graphics like "Myst" and gameplay based on "Point & Click" style.
The principle of the game is to explore the island and solve puzzles.
The games are available in English and French as well as German and Spanish for Elansar.

See the project page here: http://onorisoft.free.fr/elansar/elansar.htm

"Alice's Mom's Rescue," This is a platform game inspired by the world of Alice in Wonderland,
The giant raven has captured Alice's mother. Help Alice to save her mother through the three worlds and 25 levels!
Change Alice's height using the magic mushrooms to get through the tiny spaces.
Beware of the evil cats, birds, bats and spikes!
There are also small puzzles, and the difficulty is relatively high in the last levels.
This game is already almost running on my Dreamcast :)

"Yopaz IceStar" This is a puzzle game featuring 40 levels in 3 worlds.
You play as a little character named Yopaz and you must collect all the stars in the universe, but the vacuum of space forces you to slide indefinitely when you run in one direction.
Only an ice wall will stop you in your tracks! With this unusual constraint, you will need to collect all stars on each level.
The world "Advanced" provides additional features for seasoned players.
You will be able to change your color and collect stars of the corresponding color! Your color will also allow you to go through teleporters, direction changers, or even protect you from enemies!
A level editor is also available with endless creative possibilities!

As I have no clear idea of the number of people potentially interested in my creations on Dreamcast, I post in the different Dreamcast forums to announce my games.
If you are interested, please email me at: onorisoft@free.fr
Tell me the games that you are interested in, so I could get an idea of the most anticipated games, and I will send you an email when they will be available for sale.
This will be in form of a pressed CD with jacket and small manual.
The price should be between 20~25€ depending on the demand.

Thank you for reading :)

Hello!
Point & Click games looks awesome so my wanted list is:
1st and 2nd places are Elansar and Philia, interested very much.
3rd one is Alice's Mom's Rescue
and 4th is Yopaz IceStar.
Best way for me is a compilation with all four games on single cd.
I will send you an email too.
I post in the different Dreamcast forums to announce my games.
I suggest you to post at dreamcast-talk.com forums too.

Hi Orion_!!

I'm Indiket from dreamcast.es website and I'm giving my support for your games, they all look really impressive!! :D
And if you want, you can post there, too ;)

About the games, the point-and-click ones are catching me the attention, reminds me so much to Myst ;)
Btw, if you need a spanish translation for any game, I can help you (just send me a PM).

Alice dreams is certainly a good-looking game, but also it was Giana's Return (but the second one didn't have puzzles).

My suggestion would be to put the 2 adventure games in the same CD, at least, it will have some kind of sense for the gamer experience, isn't it?

Greetings!

Hello !
I wanted to post on dreamcast.es forum, but since I don't speak spanish, I was a bit lost and didn't know if I could post in English.
If you can relay this news on your forum, that would be nice :)

They all look really good! I like Alice dreams the most, but it might be cool to do the ports of the point and click adventures first; there might be less of that genre in the homebrew DC library.

I see that Hucast has decided to publish one of the 4 games.
