Hucast Games.

Post#1 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 9:05 pm

I'm curious. There is a new website but no mention of the dreamcast or indeed any games for pre-order.
Same on their facebok page - The ghost Blade for ps4 and xbox is the only information of note and this is the only game on their site.

Maybe the website is still under construction? Redux 2 looks cool and I'm wondering if that is still happening? I want. --
I seem to recall that hucast was to have someone else sell their games? But was that for American buyers only?

I hope they continue making dc games, imo.

For DC, they have (re) announced Redux 2 a few weeks ago ( http://dreamcast-news.blogspot.com/2017 ... -mort.html ). More informations in may.

It also says there that he's thinking of leaving the retro scene behind him, so I really don't see it coming to the DC

I think Redux 2 will be the last game for Dreamcast from him.

Could be but I hope not. Good games bad customer service. But judging by the focus on their website it might be a distinct possibility.

Now we have the other thing. If Hucast continues to make new games for Dreamcast, possible the company 2Dream.co (Tulio Conclaves from Watermelon) will be publish them like the do for Ghost Blade HD who released on PS4, XBOX ONE and Wii U.

I'm very curious to the sales numbers of all commercially released Dreamcast indie games. I mean, developing a videogame takes a lot of time if done right. So I can understand Hucast dropping out of the Dreamcast development game, seeing you'll reach so much more players by releasing on current day platforms.

Don't get me wrong, I really like to see more new Dreamcast developments. Heck I basically buy any project blindly, as where I would not have bought certain releases if they were next-gem only.

in the case of Hucast, releasing on both platforms would be ideal, the profit of the digital platforms would make up for the potential loses of the DC release. At least this of how I would do it, but then again I am a retro guy :lol:
