New Dreamcast game Redux:Dark Matters
« on: May 11, 2012, 17:02:30 PM »
Redux: Dark Matters is the sequel to Dux, a 2009 shooter on the Sega Dreamcast. However, developers Rene Hellwig and KTX Software want to bring the side-scrolling followup to PSN, XBLA, and Steam, and have posted a $25,000 Kickstarter drive toward that goal.

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. Anything that leads to more Dreamcast games can only be a good thing.




Quote from the Kickstarter.com website:

KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN:

Our goal is to publish "Redux: Dark Matters" on STEAM, XBLA and PSN. To achieve this, we are offering a Kickstarter exclusive preorder for a Limited Edition of Redux on Sega Dreamcast. Only 1000 copies will be produced ever! It will only be available, right now, exclusively through this Kickstarter campaign.

The required devkits to release on STEAM, XBLA and PSN are costly - so we are offering an exclusive Sega Dreamcast version of Redux: Dark Matters to fund the development for these additional platforms. We want to bring Redux to as many people as possible. Pledging your support directly makes this a reality!

The Sega Dreamcast is one of our personal favorite video game systems. We thought, what better way to reach our goals than to offer something we know or fans would love: a limited edition Sega Dreamcast version! Help keep the Sega Dreamcast alive by preordering a copy of Redux: Dark Matters today!

Supporting our campaign not only helps keep the Dreamcast alive - but directly helps us bring Redux to more platforms and more people.

Bumping this old thread as this is supposed to be shipping this month. Haven't heard anything from the developers in a while so not sure if they are on schedule or not and their website doesn't say anything. Who else around here is backing this and have you heard anything?

I've not ordered the game after being so disappointed with the gameplay of Dux after having waited patiently through delay after delay. I'll probably regret the decision as this sequel looks to be a major improvement...
