New Dreamcast Game SLaVE!
« on: September 11, 2014, 05:05:20 AM »
Just got this email from the Goat Store!

Quote
Hello:

Yesterday, we announced a new Dreamcast project with our partners Isotope and Jay Townsend called SLaVE, an extremely unique first person game inspired by arcade hits of the past like Robotron.  The game is going to be an extremely limited run - only 484 copies will be sold - and it's available for pre-order now at goatstore.com.  84 of those copies are a Limited Limited Edition, and 400 of them are a "standard" Limited Edition.

For more details, check out the whole news release at www.goatstorepublishing.com, which also got a facelift.

Unfortunately, when we went to send the email yesterday, our mail server had an issue and our email announcement for you was not sent!  If you are interested in the game, especially the LLE, please head to the GOAT Store web site as soon as possible to place your order, as we expect copies will sell out within the next 24 hours.

The LE version of the game is also selling briskly, but has better availability currently.

Thanks for your support, and we can't wait to keep bringing you fun new projects like SLaVE and the upcoming Hypertension: Harmony of Darkness!

It's not scheduled to ship until next April, but if you want a copy you better act fast. I just ordered a LLE version  :)

SLaVE official trailer.

Here's a trailer of it too  :)


I'm on my tablet so hopefully the video imbeds properly.

Now that Trek is a Dreamcast owner, and for anyone who missed this, I thought I would give this a bump. The LLE edition is sold out but the regular LE edition is still available. This really looks like an awesome game, and it's very cheap too. Get your orders in before it's too late :)

I believe you still can.  It's a preorder and I've not seen anything posted that says it is sold out.

The email did say there were still some left, but it also said they wouldn't be taking any orders over the next few days. The owners of the site and all their inventory were going to a gaming expo this weekend. Middle of next week you should be able to order it :)

Here is an update that I received from the team:

Good news!  After trying many things with the old code and not finding the proper fix for the bug that caused this delay, the SLaVE team decided to rewrite much of the engine code using new techniques. This will result in a better product, as some other minor issues and glitches that were not fixed in the previous code have been addressed and the game will run on the Dreamcast even better than originally planned!

We are pleased to report that the game is back to running on the Dreamcast, this time with no major show-stopping bugs.

Due to the nature of the rewrite, we still need to take a little time for additional bug testing but Jay Townsend's SLaVE is definitely closer to release!

We'll keep you updated as more developments occur!

Guess I missed out on ordering but, WOW! That game looks incredible.
Would dust off the ol' DC if I could get my mits on this! Sounds like these are all business. Nice 8)
