Elysian Shadows Gets Publishing Deal For Sega Dreamcast

I'll let this video speak for itself.



DCEmulation, as well as myself personally, is extremely proud of Falco, our very own GyroVorbis, for the amazing path his project has taken.
It's thinking...

Yes, it has been a long time since someone from this forum is preparing a commercial release with the exception off Corbin.

I am a little disappointed that GoatDan was not aggressive enough to secure them and a MegaDrive developer reached out to them and offered to publish Elysian Shadows instead of a veteran Dreamcast publisher. Strange times.

Well I've been in contact with WM's Fonzie since 2004. At the time it was because of a DCEvolution.net release I've been working on. But I did keep contact ever since. I remember suggesting a Dreamcast port of Pier Solar long before the MD version was released.

And now they got Chui on board, who is a scene veteran himself.

It's great to see a new publisher joinging the ranks. - Congratulations to the Elysian Shadows team ! :)

Thanks, guys. As I said in the video, Tulio and I have become quite close lately, and WM very much agrees with the direction we're trying to take ES in creatively... Which is honestly the most important thing to us when it comes to a publishing deal.

Tvpselsfreak just joined our ranks, who is also a dcemulation.org local. At this point, ES is already pushing the DC to its absolute limits, and he is the most knowledgeable, hardcore DC developer I have ever known... If anybody can help us release ES on DC with these fancy effects and push the console to its limits, it's him.

We also just released Adventures in Game Development Chapter 26:

In it, we introduced the OUYA build of ES. We are being backed by OUYA as a "Free the Games Kickstarter." The first six months after launch, ES will be on Sega Dreamcast, OUYA, Windows, Mac, and Linux. We're really grateful to them for being cool with promoting us as an OUYA-exclusive and still allowing us to dual-launch on the Dreamcast.

Tvpselsfreak is a great coder! Loved Melchior so much. Really really glad to see him even more committed to this project than before. That should indeed ensure the best Dreamcast port possible.
