Radium for the Dreamcast Announced

Post by goatdan » Sun Oct 15, 2006 1:00 am

Revival Studios and GOAT Store Publishing today announced that Radium, a third person action adventure game originally slated to be published for the Game Boy Advance has been upgraded and will be making its way to the Dreamcast for this holiday season.

Radium is a futuristic-styled 3D action/adventure game, using a third person perspective. The game features a total 16 levels with very realistic 3D environments in 4 different scenarios. The game will also feature high quality graphics, a multitude of weapons, bonuses and upgrades and nicely balanced gameplay.

Gamers play as Nova, a female cyborg-experiment who has been captured and awakes inside a laboratory. You must escape from the lab that you are being held in, make your way to the city and figure out who or what is behind your kidnapping, and stop them before their plans can be spread any further.

More information about Radium will be revealed in the future. Information can be found at the official Radium Online web site at http://www.radium-game.com/ or GOAT Store Publishing at http://www.goatstore.com/publishing/

Hope this is a pleasant surprise for everyone today. I don't think any of you knew this was coming...

And perhaps even more exciting, we've been in talks with Revival / Karma Studios quite a bit, and we may be releasing as many as 10 or so games of theirs within the next year or two. If anyone is wondering, Karma Studios is a developer who has developed games for the Playstation, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance, as well as other portable things.

Now that our web site has changed over, expect to see a lot of new and exciting announcements coming as soon as we can crank them out. There will hopefully be another one within a week or two, and there is of course the sweet JAMMA Joysticks including the Dreamcast version which we just announced :)

Awesome *shocking* news! :mrgreen:

The Pocket PC pics look nice, but I hope that the Dreamcast version features graphical improvements over it. Either way, it's a promising title.

DC releases? At least I hope they make more Dreamcast ports :)

Awesome stuff. I would really LOVE to do a level for it. The engine seems a bit like the old BUILD one used in games such as Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, Redneck Rampage and Blood. I?ve used that one for years and made quite some popular maps.

If there?s place for someone doing a map (just for the kicks and freelance)..

That's awesome. It does remind me a lot of a third person Duke Nukem. Definitely unexpected.

Best news in a long time! That was certainly not expected! Where can I preorder? :)
Now, just waiting for some DC-screens to get the hype up. Or a trailer, since there is one for the other versions!

Oh man how I'd love to see Redneck Rampage on DC as well, any chance that would ever happen?

Awesome news indeed. Hopefully it supported 16:9 but I doubt it will. No one includes widescreen on dc games :(

Well, we only intend right now to publish Dreamcast titles. Other ports of the games may be handled by other companies, but those 10 or so other titles...

*all* Dreamcast.

Goatdan, if it's ok I'd like to do an interview with the team. They can send it to you before I publish it.

Metropolis Street Racer has it. But it's not in the Options, it's in the Cheat menu and you have to play it a little bit to open it.

P.S.: Great news. never believed so many games would be released :)

Sounds interesting, but the graphics look like they are from the 16-bit era. Hopefully the DC version will look more representative of the times.

I have never been able to find a video of this game, all the links I found are down. Does anyone know if there's a video of this game available somewhere?

I'm talking about the videos from the PocketPC or GBA versions. I can only find broken links.

I'm glad somebody bumped this topic, because I missed it the first time around. When the game does see a commercial release, I can guarantee you at least one sale ;).

I see it's past the prospective release date. Nothing new. I just hope there is not any trouble publishing this and other titles. It cost's a lot, but from what I've seen. All the recent Dreamcast releases sold out. So I do not see a money issue as far as making up production costs. Maybe Q1 2007 is more realistic or Q2. Either that or someone's just going to have to go over there and start slave driving the programers.
