Is there any Dreamcast homebrew game from Japan?

Hello,

I hope the is the correct forum for this question. Does anyone of you know whether there has been any kind of homebrew game from Japan for the Dreamcast? I have searched for games online, but I did not find any. It seems a bit odd to me that in more than 10 years of KallistiOS no project arised from Japan.

There were a number of unlicensed games made with homebrew toolkits in the early days of homebrew. 'Dangerous Toys', 'ParaPara DC', and 'MILK-DC' are three I can think of off the top of my head.

I don't know if Dangerous Toys or MILK were ever released physically in an 'official' capacity.

Let me add two more Japanese homebrews to the list (there are a few more but, you're right, not too many known)

- Aiming Tank (unknown devel, but comments in src code are in Japanese hehe)

- Rekka (a pretty disturbing game but, at the same time, very interesting source code that appeared in 2006).
Don't know if it's OK to put here the link, so just use Google :)

I was only going for 'commercial' homebrew.

http://www.fuzzymuzzle.com/Kiyoshi/IDE_HDD.htm Not a game, but a contribution.

One I was looking for but could not find was a homebrew afterburner clone that had Bush heads replacing enemies (or something like that...). Done using libdream iirc.

Whoops, that was Rekka :P.
