Can You Help Save DC Evolution?

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

DC Evolution is a fantastic site for those enthusiastic about homebrew on the Dreamcast. The site hosts freeware disc images of Dreamcast games and applications released into the public domain. It’s a wonderfully comprehensive website and it’s now being threatened with complete closure as their current host is suffering ‘extreme resource usage’.

Check out the full comment straight from DC Evo:

“Bad news. Our Web host has taken the DC Evo network sites offline because of extreme resource usage again, and we’re not sure there’s a way back from this. Our site is apparently using ~267 CPU minutes per day, and they want it under 15.

They’ve given us only 2 options; either take the sites offline permanently or upgrade to a much more robust hosting account (one that costs as much for one month as we pay per year). We simply don’t have the resources to try to upgrade the hosting account, so it’s looking like we’re going to have to take the sites offline.

We are working to backup all of the content and files again, so that we can potentially send them to someone else if they want to try to get the site going again; but I just don’t see any way for us to continue down this path at this time.

We are so sorry for never being able to get things restored to their former glory.”

If you think you can help save a fantastic website and one of the most important resources for Dreamcast homebrew then please contact DC Evo at their Facebook page or Twitter account.

DUX Sequel in the Works for Dreamcast; Kickstarter Campaign Started

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

DUX, the 2D shoot-em-up released by Hucast on Dreamcast in 2009 is getting a sequel called Redux: Dark Matters and the developers have taken to Kickstarter in order to get the project the funding it needs.

The goal of the Kickstarter is to bring the game to XBLA, PSN and Steam through the sale of a limited edition Dreamcast version. This version will also come boxed with a new version of DUX called DUX 1.5 which features additional improvements over its’ original release.

Also being made available is a 4 disc boxset of the soundtrack featuring music composed by Andre Neumann and remixes by the legendary Chris Huelsbeck of Turrican fame.

The game will also be released on iOS/iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch in July this year. The Dreamcast release is scheduled for December while the release on Steam, XBLA and PSN is tentative as it all relies on the Kickstarter campaign.

If you want to pledge towards Redux: Dark Matter then click here to be taken to the Kickstarter page.

Wind and Water: Puzzle Battles Ported to PC; Full Game Available for Free Download

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

The incredibly indie puzzler Wind and Water: Puzzle Battles has been ported to the PC and is now available to download for absolutely nothing. You can click this link to be taken to the developer’s blog where the game can be downloaded.

I’d recommend anyone with an interest in puzzle games to try out Wind and Water. Think Hexic (the puzzle game included on all X-Box 360s) with a story that parodies all your favourite games from yester-year. There’s also a plethora of different SEGA cameos with some fantastic remixes of classic SEGA tunes.

So what are you waiting for? Give Wind and Water: Puzzle Battles a try; you won’t regret it!
