Welcome to DCEmulation!
UPDATE January 2020 -- DCEmulation is currently under a transition -- if you cannot find the information you're looking for on this wiki, please search here instead: https://dreamcast.wiki/
As usual, the DCEmulation forums, now the oldest active Dreamcast development community, are available for discussion and lots of useful Dreamcast information.
I'll post some updates here too while the transition is going:
Driving Strikers Online Demo Released
The first homebrew game to take advantage of online multiplayer is now available to download as a demo! Featuring cross-platform play with Dreamcast, Windows, Linux, and Raspberry Pi clients, Driving Strikers is a fun, fast-paced soccer game played with cars. The Dreamcast client supports both Broadband Adapter and dialup modem (or DreamPi) connectivity. Check out the trailer on YouTube and then download the demo for yourself!
Summoning Signals Demo Released
lerabot has released a new demo for his game Summoning Signals:
Discover the dyschronic world of Summoning Signals and help Bertholet in his strange journey. You will soon discover that this planet's timeline is quite different from your own. New technology and old ruins are a common sight in Summoning Signals. Meet with the planet's elusive inhabitants, repair your ship and escape before the fabled Minotaur finds you.
Simulant Engine 20.09 Stable Released
