Wow. Good job on getting DCJY to do a hands on. He's a great guy.
It's been 6 years Hombreimaginario. I am really impressed with Retrosumus commitment and perseverance.
Back when this project was announced I was quite skeptical with the whole fish bowl presentation but my how the project has evolved.
Respect.
I really hope nearly a decade of work is received as lovingly as the love and care RetroSumus has poured into this project.

Well guys... this is it. Xenocider is here :)

Sorry for the crappy video quality. We couldn't wait for a better camera to immortalize the first ever factory-pressed copy we unsealed and tested xD

Congratulations to you and your team.
How long was the journey?
I'd like to see a journey trailer.
You know like a developer diary.
I hope it sells well, I also hope it doesn't immediately sell out and end up in collector vaults and people actually have a fair chance of playing the game.

To be honest, sales are going quite slow. A new DC game is not as huge news as it used to be 5 or 10 years ago. Also indie or KS games are not enjoying the same level of trust or enthusiasm from gamers as back then (unless you manage to build and maintain a huge fan communitiy of course).

I'ts been around 7 years since we first announced it, and about 5 years of development (almost 5 since the failed KS).

You can check out a few of our dev diaries in our YouTube channel :)

I'm sorry to hear the sales are going slow. You're right, new DC games are not as big of news as they were years ago, and I kinda blame JoshProd publishing anything that can be ported to the console... I used to collect every indie title released, but had to stop doing so.

I'll pick up the game pretty soon, unfortunately money is tight right now, having some catching up to do after losing income last year.
It's thinking...

First things first. Please subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven’t done so already!


Last week we broke into The Dreamcast Junkyard‘s Twitch channel to answer some questions while they were playing Xenocider live for the first time. You can check it out here:
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/903749439

Retro Faith played for 3 hours straight last Thursday, tried to unlock all the unlockables and seemed to enjoy the game quite a bit too ;)
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/910192609

Xenocider is “probably the most ambitious game for the Dreamcast in two decades”. Adam Koralik unboxes his Regular and Special edition copies, comments on some details about the game and gives the first few stages a try:

Xenocider is available in both Regular and Special editon http://retrosumus.com/shop/

New Xenocider demo available! :D

It’s been years since we released our last playable demo, and the game evolved far beyond what was initially planned, so if you want to give it a try for yourself, now is the time!

Have you reached out to distributors?
Covid certainly impacts sales of collectibles like this one.
loosen@goatstore.com

I know he is going through a tough time, MGC was a huge distribution and retro trading channel but it is no longer possible with covid. Nonetheless, he should be able to help you move games into US.
