Goat Store Announces SLaVE Limited Edition for Dreamcast

Post by DaMadFiddler » Tue Sep 09, 2014 1:10 am

It is the 15th anniversary of the Dreamcast's "9/9/99" U.S. launch, and the GOAT Store is celebrating by announcing a new game for the venerable system.

From the press release,

To celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Dreamcast, Isotope and GOAT Store Publishing is proud to announce a new game collaboration with developer Jay Townsend for a new game, SLaVE.

First person shooters have dominated the video game industry ever since Wolfenstein was introduced in the 1992, becoming more technologically advanced each step of the way. Modern gamers expect mission objectives, realistic weapons, and online deathmatches. But what if a game instead went the opposite way, mixing the addictive simplicity of early 80s arcade games?

Enter SLaVE. This is what happens if Robotron 2084 and DOOM got together and had an illegitimate lovechild. SLaVE is the timewarp of 1984's aesthetic and 1994's tech to make a game that is uniquely 2014. It is relentless neon arcade blasting action from a first-person tech utilizing features in the extended DOOM engine 3DGE that gamers could only imagine in 1984, or 1994 for that matter.

SLaVE will offer 100 levels of intense blasting action and a pulse-pounding soundtrack to go with it. It's just you, the SLaVE in the world behind the code controlled by MaSTER and whatever it throws out to stop you. Will you rise, or remain a SLaVE forever?


The game is powered by Isotope Softworks' 3DGE engine, which is also at the heart of Isotope's own upcoming title, Hypertension: Harmony of Darkness.

Looks fun! Though not too impressed with the name "limited limited edition." No need to call the normal game a limited edition.

I agree.

Indeed, both editions are limited.

However the limited limited edition could have been a special limited edition or deluxe limited edition.

I thought the naming reflected the oddity of the game itself. I preordered a limited limited :P.
