In The Line Of Fire will be a brand new first person shooter for the Sega Dreamcast. Assume the role of a SWAT commander and take down the bad guys! The game is currently funding via Kickstarter. We have another 7 days to fund the game, but roughly 13.000 US$ out of 45.000 US$ are reached. If you are really interested in this game, please consider your support.
After the successful Kickstarter funding Team Saber Rider heavily works on the game itself. Just yesterday there were news posted on Facebook, which we don’t want to hide.
Landing area in the desert, beginning of Mission 1 of Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs. The game can run in 16:9 (without stretching) in Nintendo 3DS resolution (400×240) and of course in classic 4:3 (320×240). #screenshotsaturday #3DS #Dreamcast
Luiz Fernando Nai Ribeiro is our hero of the day. The past six months he spent working on an Engine which compiles on the Sega Saturn and on the Dreamcast.
Notes from the author:
Thanks to Johannes who created the libraries in C to access the Sega Saturn hardware and all the community who worked hard to make KallistiOS a good environment for the Dreamcast I was able to create a engine in C where I can make a game for both consoles.
Features of the engine:
– Draw maps and export for Sega Saturn and Dreamcast;
– Draw for the Dreamcast VMU;
– SpriteSheet generator;
– Integration with Notepad++ for coding;
– Integration with Dreamcast/Sega Saturn emulators;
– Compiling and generating the files in windows;
– Tool to export sounds in the correct format for Dreamcast/Sega Saturn.
This is a brief demonstration of the LightConn – a wireless Dreamcast gun that works with flat screen and HDTVs with a VGA connection. The LightConn was created by Chris Diaoglou, the creator of the DreamConn wireless Dreamcast controller.

Retroguru of Giana’s Return and Sqrxz fame are heavily working on their new game Hermes. In this Jump’n’Run you must chase a chicken to get your stomach filled with delicious meat. The game is sort of anti-vegetarian and features a doubtful sense of humor. As all Retroguru games, it’s expected to see this game on several other platforms than just Sega’s Dreamcast.
