    Dc Xenocider for Dreamcast

    Xenocider is a new on-rails shooter with retro-futuristic aesthetics and the first 3D arcade game for the Dreamcast in over a decade!

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...inux-dreamcast



    Xenocider is a 3D arcade action game with retro-futuristic aesthetics, currently in development for Dreamcast, Windows, Mac, Linux and 3DS.

    An innovative approach to the on-rails shooter genre and the first 3D arcade game for the Dreamcast in over a decade, Xenocider is our personal 3D homage to the classic Space Harrier, with a little influence from Galaxy Force and Sin & Punishment thrown into the mix.

    PLAYABLE DEMO AVAILABLE!

    The game tells the story of Xara, a cyborg from a remote planet turned into the ultimate weapon of mass destruction thanks to her superhuman strength and speed and her combat skills in extreme environments.



    Xenocider is a labour of love for us, and the result of countless video-meetings at unearthly hours in order to create an epic arcade experience that doesn't just makes us proud but also pays homage to the classics we grew up with.

    But what do we feel makes Xenocider special?

    • Game mechanics: easy to play, difficult to master.
      Completely customizable controls.
      Dreamcast version will support arcade stick, mouse+keyboard, and also the official Twin Stick!
      3DS version will feature 3D effect and support for Circle Pad Pro.
      A brand new, made from scratch engine called Dreamer.
      Stable 60 fps!
      10 levels (including special stages) + 2 extra levels if stretch goals are reached.
      Upgradable skills. This option will be available between levels.
      3 game modes (story, arcade, boss run) + 1 extra unlockable mode if stretch goals are reached.
      3 difficulty levels.
      Replayability and unlockable content!
      A rocking soundtrack by producer and keyboardist Juanjo Martín.



    Retro Sumus is a small, independent game development team who got together to revisit genres and concepts we felt were underused, or not explored in depth back in their time. This may include old-school arcade shooting action, tech gimmicks from the 16-bit era, or an updated, western take on a typically japanese genre like the visual novel adventures… Because, really, why not?

    Please help us get Xenocider funded so we can bring it to a Dreamcast, PC or 3DS near you! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...inux-dreamcast

    I wonder how the controls work on the Dreamcast version. You can see that the targeting reticle can be moved independently of the character. So I guess on the PC (and probably 3DS), that means left stick and right stick, right? But of course the Dreamcast only has the one stick. Maybe you move with the face buttons?

    Edit: oh duh, I just read that again and noticed the twin stick support. Although I doubt they would require it.

    It looks neat. I love Space Harrier, so I should probably like this one as well. I threw the amount of dollars for a physical copy on it.

    Well, the controls will be 100% customizable so you'll be able to configure your controller as it plays more comfortably for you. Also, truste me playing it with the twin stick is amazing (though it's not implemented in the demo yet!).

    When playing on a PC, the best way to play inmho is keyboard+mouse (which will be supported on the DC version as well). For the DC, I'd suggest moving from left to write with the triggers, and aiming with the D-pad.

    Looks like the Dreamcast version would be ripe for ASCii Mission Stick compatibility.

    We'll have to look into it :P It will be compatible with the Twin Stick anyway
