Volgarr the Viking for Dreamcast

Hello All.

I'll get straight to the point - I was talking to one of the team members who developed Volgarr, and he had mentioned that the were playing around with porting the game to various platforms, including the Dreamcast. I MAY have begged and pleaded for that to happen, and after a... while, he had a couple of files for me.

Hey man, sorry to leave you hanging so long.

So the problem is that my programmer buddy, who unfortunately lives far away from me in a different state, told me everything was ready to go a while back, but I couldn't get it to work myself. The Dreamcast I have access too is dying and can't really read discs any more, and I had no luck getting an emulator to work with it. I finally decided that its better to release based on my buddy's word than let all his work on it go to waste.

Therefore, I'm releasing this port with a notice that we (Crazy Viking Studios) don't officially support this version of the game since it was made by someone else (with our permission), but as a totally free, and freely-re-distributable, copy of the game, with no guarantees that it will work or that it is of sufficient quality. No prior proof of purchase required either. Since we aren't, as a company, really endorsing this version, we can't really publicly advertise it or anything, but we're fine with it being spread around the internet by Dreamcast enthusiasts to play if they want (assuming anyone actually gets it to work like the programmer guy says it should).


EDIT:
Segata Sanshiro was kind enough to host the files. So without further ado:

You can grab the files here:

Same here, I played it again not 2 weeks ago, you can't imagine how much coins I put into that game as a kid :lol:

It's a genre the dreamcast really needs in the form of an indie game

Oh man, we had one (black tiger) in the bowling hall we used to go as teens, we spent more time playing it (and silk worm) than mingling with the girls :D

I just played Volgarr... its a very cool game, black tiger meets blackthorne meets castlevania, the graphics and animations are neo-geo magician lord quality... actually better, doesn't look indie. I'm actually getting very exited, if on the DC it runs and looks as on the PC... will be amazing!!!

Looks nice. Vaguely reminds me of Magic Sword. Hope the port works out... ^^
