Fruit’Y (Announcement) (DC Game)

Fruit’Y – Playing with edibles is heavily inspired by the Kaiko classic Gem’X, which has been seen on computers such as the Commodore Amiga 500, Commodore 64 and Atari ST. The game consists of two boards of fruits. The left field belongs to a cute tiger who needs to reproduce the right field 1:1 being able to proceed to the next level. Sounds easy?! Possibly it does, at least for the first few levels!

This game is being released next week at the GameStage Expo 2015 in Linz, Austria, 9.-11. October 2015 on a “pay what you want/donation” basis. If you plan to visit the Retrobörse Linz, which happens in the same building as the GameStage Expo, but only on the 10. October, you may want to check this out too. Spanish people will get a chance to grab the game at Retrobarcelona from 14.-15. October 2015! For all who can not get the game at any of those three mentioned events, can order the game via DragonBox-Shop at a bargain of 2.99 EUR which basically only covers the physical production costs.

Public downloads and ports will follow one week after Retrobarcelona!

Volgarr the Viking (21-08-2015) (DC Game)

Our friends from The Dreamcast Junkyard came up with wonderful news: With Marc Hall‘s hard work and the permission from Crazy Viking Studios the game Volgarr the Viking was remade for Sega’s Dreamcast.

Playing as Volgarr the Viking, use your sword and spear to slaughter your foes in bloody combat. Battle Gigantic bosses in every world and find secrets that lead to unknown paths. Holding onto Volgarr’s gear is key; his very life depends on it!

The Dreamcast version is Freeware but if you appreciate the game for Dreamcast you might want to buy the commercial version from Steam? The game is available to buy for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (requires SteamOS).

Raining Squares (02-04-2015) (DC VMU Techdemo)

Raining Squares by Sebastian Mihai is a Sega Dreamcast VMU homebrew tech demo. The VMU is also sometimes called VMS. The background is animated, the player controls a pixel, moving it left right, and there are falling squares which appear at random X positions, and have random sizes. There is a delay every time the player’s pixel collides with a falling square.

Overbearing Burgers by Sebastien Mihai is a Sega Dreamcast homebrew game featuring a hungry brown bear. The bear must jump at the right time to not only not hit the rocks on the ground, but also to not miss any of the hamburgers.

Gianas Return v1.10.1 (DC Game Port)

Giana’s Return aims to be a worthy UNOFFICIAL sequel of “The Great Giana Sisters” and has been recently updated for Dreamcast to match to it’s latest v1.10 version. Ported to Dreamcast by Indiket.

Evil Swampy and his followers have stolen the magic ruby, which made it once possible for Giana and Maria to return from their dream. Many creatures are after this ruby, but does it really has power, or was it just a coincidence?As this is not bad enough, Swampy fell in love at first sight with Giana’s sister Maria and shamelessly kidnapped her. She simply has been at the wrong place at the wrong time.You will now have to take on the role of Giana and get back the magic ruby. And most important of all, save your beloved sister Maria and get home save!

Release notes:

Unfortunately we had a bug in Giana’s Return v1.10 for Dreamcast, which crashed the game after level 8. After some investigation Indiket was able to track the bug down. The version of mikmod used was a bit old and had to be updated to v3.3.7. The game works as expected again. Sorry Dreamcast users! Head over to the download section for the update and enjoy a crash free version.
