Dreamcast Kickstarter: Dráscula: The Vampire Strikes Back

Post#1 » Thu May 28, 2020 7:53 am

Apparently some point and click adventure game has a kickstarter for a Dreamcast port. These types of games were never really my cup of tea, but I still wish them lucky on their kickstarter.

Taken from https://www.megavisionsmag.com/point-click-game-drascula-the-vampire-strikes-back-seeking-funding-for-dreamcast-port/
Spanish developer Erbe Software is looking to port their animated Lucas Arts-era adventure Dráscula: The Vampire Strikes Back to the Dreamcast.

Erbe is only seeking about $4,000 to fund the Dráscula, and a physical Dreamcast version only costs about €10, plus shipping.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/er ... t?ref=card
As described on the KickStarter page:

In “Dráscula: The Vampire Strikes Back”, you are John Hacker, a common guy sent by a British property company to speak with ‘Count Dráscula’ about some lands. By chance you meet a gorgeous blond girl who is kidnapped by the Count himself, and you, John Hacker, set on a fun yet dangerous quest to rescue her.

It is a Spanish 2D classic point & click style adventure with tons of humor and an easy interface, now on Steam and soon in Android devices. We LOVE SEGA Dreamcast, so we want to publish a exclusive limited edition for this console of the game through Kickstarter. It will be avaible with interface and subtitles in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish, and also full audio in English and Spanish.

Obviously English isn't their first language, but I hope they put more effort into the English translation of the game than they did the English portion of their Kickstarter.

Yes this is 100% freeware and according to the original developer. http://www.alcachofasoft.com alcachofa@alcachofasoft.com

"You may not charge a fee for the game itself. This includes reselling the game as an individual item."
Who is erbesoftware??? They have nothing to do with this project at all.

This is not the ERBE Software company that published the game in the past. Take this translation from the company's kickstarter bio:

ERBE SOFTWARE, S.L. is a young Spanish software company founded at the end of 2018, being a subsidiary of the commercial company PROTOCREDIT, a company dedicated to offering companies and consumers tax, administrative and legal services. The new publisher responds to the name of ERBE SOFTWARE in honor of the distributor that operated during the so-called Golden Age of Spanish software.


The company's website shows they have many Steam ports of classic Spanish point-and-click games.
