Feel free to fix it up any way you see fit. Maturion asked me to move it, so I did.
All right; post tweaked.
A 2009 space shooter for Dreamcast, DUX, is getting a sequel in REDUX: Dark Matters. While the game will primarily be a downloadable title for modern consoles, they have started a Kickstarter campaign for a Dreamcast version.
Redux: Dark Matters is the sequel to Dux, a 2009 shooter you may not have played ... because it came out on Dreamcast. However, developers Rene Hellwig and KTX Software want to bring the side-scrolling followup to PSN, XBLA, and Steam, and have posted a $25,000 Kickstarter drive toward that goal.
But the developers haven't forgotten their insane drive to keep the Dreamcast alive. If you contribute $65 or more, you'll get a limited-edition Dreamcast copy of Redux, exclusive to the Kickstarter campaign. This is all we needed to clear up our mixed feelings about the Kickstarter phenomenon; anything that leads to more Dreamcast games can only be a good thing.
While it would be nice to see something other than another space shooter, and there has been quite a bit of debate lately regarding the merits of Kickstarter (including this
Penny-Arcade strip), new games being released for the Dreamcast are always good news.
The Kickstarter campaign is the only way to get a Dreamcast copy, so you may find this worthwhile. Click here
