    The Mega Drive was far inferior to the NES in terms of diffusion rate and sales in the Japanese market, though there were ardent Sega users. But in the US and Europe, we knew Sega could challenge Nintendo. We aimed at dominating those markets, hiring experienced staff for our overseas department in Japan, and revitalising Sega of America and the ailing Virgin group in Europe.

    Then we set about developing killer games.

    Oh hey, another side-scrolling shooter released for the Dreamcast. What a surprise... [/sarcasm]

    The pedigree behind the Soundtrack sounds pretty cool, though! May be worth it just for the music alone...

    It's better to have another side-scroller shooter than to have no new game at all. Also, It's great to see that Huelsbeck was involved in this project.

    I'd like having the option of buying a digital copy though; 150,00 bucks + taxes is a little too much for me.

    "look, it's another bloody shump"

    Quit the crap at once!
    How many shumps come out a year?
    I bet not nearly as many as those FPSs, 3D shinygrafx adventures, online multiplayer racing and RPGs, etc.

    THANK GOD IT'S ANOTHER SHUMP

    Yet I know for a fact this game should be pummelled to death.

    what are they supposed to make? shooters are easy and cheap to make. what do you expect? a new rpg that costs millions to develop? it's a miracle there still are dreamcast games being released

    it's a commercially dead platform, that's why

    more

    there's a difference in "who would buy an FPS made for the DC" and "who would buy a shump made for the DC"
    shumps do not require state-of-the-art grafx to be considered top notch
    shumps don't sell
    shumps are mostly labors of love and objects of desire for a few
    shumps are niche, fans will gravitate towards the platform that offers the games

    What happened to those platformers that people were trying to get funded via Kickstarter? Did they not reach their targets?

    @OT: Not throwing my comments in regarding the genre. The game looks good, and I hope you shumpers enjoy it.

    there are other 2d genres out there

    beat em ups
    scrolling beat em ups
    2d platformers

    all of these more or less fit in to the trappings you describe

    there's no real niche market for any of those.

    I thought there were tons of BoR mods for the DC.

    This is the only homebrew DC game anybody should give a fuck about.
