Also planned: AMA (Ask Me Anything) events, Kickstarter live and more YouTube videos.

Tying in to Halloween is a good idea, although we'll have to celebrate it early. Thanks!


Roel, maybe you could make a flyer that wouldn't use too much color ink for people to distribute. Just enough to show off the beauty of the game. Are there any Dreamcast Talkers in major cities around the world that could print a flyer or two to take to their local stores?

I looked at the kickstarter page last night and again this morning. Good to see the jump.

From what I understand, any PS4 pledges will be refunded if you don't make the stretch? I think you should have made the Playstation 4 version a smaller stretch goal to make sure you can get your foot in the door there.

I see the Dreamast Junk Yard has a demo of this game. Have you tried to contact Adam Koralik? Im sure he would help as his channel gets a lot of views.

WingMantis: I don't have an ink-friendly version, but I have added the flyer to the Intrepid Izzy press kit. (direct link)

On the subject of PlayStation 4, I have good news! The PS4 version is now included in the base goal! Now if someone an direct me to the PS4 userbase's door, I have a foot I'd like to get in there...


Anonymouse: I contacted Adam Koralik the same time as I did pcwzrd13 and the DCJY, and I also sent him the demo. Let's hope he'll put it to good use!

I think these (beautiful) videos are a great help for the kickstarter.

You should contact Retro Gamer Magazine in the UK. They have a section every month about recent homebrew/indie titles and are big fans of DC. I'm positive (edit: fairly certain!) they'll feature you.

aka DavidHK on DC games.

I think you should reach non-dreamcast related communities too because most of us read news here or at facebook groups and we do know about the game. Contact known bloggers through social networks you never know if and how much they going to like your game, check their youtube channels and take a look at recommended channels in their profile since they add friends you may do not know yet.

Thanks for the advice, but I've been doing a lot of that since the launch already. ;) The non-Dreamcast bloggers/vloggers don't respond nearly as often as the Dreamcast ones, though.

Glad to see some of the previous DC kickstarters giving you shoutouts. Did you try contacting the staff for the book "Sega Dreamcast: collected works." They have 2100 backers going right now, perhaps they would be willing to say a few kind things about this project.
