DUX, a 2009 Dreamcast exclusive space shooter, is getting a sequel in REDUX: Dark Matters. The game is planned for a release as a physical copy for Dreamcast and as a downloadable title for STEAM, XBLA and PSN.
The game is being developed by René Hellwig from NG:DEV.TEAM (GunLord, Fast Striker, Last Hope and DUX) and KTX Software (The Haunted: Hells Reach).
To fund the STEAM, XBLA and PSN versions of REDUX: Dark Matters the developers offer an exclusive Limited Edition of the game for Dreamcast only available for those who support their KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN!
The Limited Edition for Dreamcast will be released as a 2-disc set and includes the long awaited DUX 1.5, a refined and polished version of the original DUX released in 2009. This game is exclusive to Dreamcast and will only ever be available as part of the Limited Edition 2-disc set.

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.
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 for the Kickstarter page (and a gameplay trailer).

Just registered and provided a $100 backing for the Dreamcast version. I agree in terms of wanting to see other genres being pumped out, but that won't stop me from supporting Dreamcast development. After all, I know that I would want others to support me with the game I'm working on.
I took the liberty to rewrite the newspost as the joystiq article got quite a few things wrong.

From what I understand the Dreamcast version is a sure thing, the campaign is for the PSN/STEAM/XBLA versions. The regular edition will be available to everyone interested, just like DUX. The Limited Edition however (which includes the exclusive DUX 1.5) will only be available to those who support the Kickstarter project.
As I am very busy at the moment, I don't have the time to translate it to English, but it contains some interesting facts. If anyone wants to translate it (chris maybe?) and publish it here, feel free to do it.
