Video Game Ad of the Day: Dreamcast

Dreamcast Launch
Today marks 14 years since the Dreamcast launched in North America. The 9.9.99 release date is one that will stick with Sega fans forever – it was a pretty damn magical day. The Dreamcast launch was more successful than many had believed, even with a really hot showing at E3 1999. We all know how the story ends, but it’s nice to remember the times when the Dreamcast was on fire.

Cave Story comes to the Dreamcast

cavestory

The classic indie PC game Cave Story (or Doukutsu Monogatari) has been ported to the Dreamcast.

This has been made possible by a complete open-source rewrite of the game’s engine, known as NXEngine. The port does have a few issues, namely sound, but it’s still fairly functional. A self-booting ISO is available here.

It’s cool to see people still supporting the Dreamcast with quality homebrew ports.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Dreamcast


The Dreamcast launched with one of Sega’s biggest ever media blitzes…in America. You could almost be forgiven for not knowing what a Dreamcast is if you lived in any of the Ozisoft territories, where the system was a complete bust thanks to one of the most disastrous launches in gaming history.
