It does have 4 controller ports, because that was the way to go over 20 years ago :mrgreen:
Over 90% of its library is still single player though, because most folks (used to) play by themselves in their house ;)


That is an adult thinking of gaming, videgames were born for children and teens and they want to play together too, but young fathers and mothers also want, they does not want to see their children play all the day alone


Not necessarily, even as a kid (over 4 decades ago), I preferred playing solo. That is not to say I don’t enjoy co-op, but if I really have to choose, I’ll always play solo. A lot of gamers are like that, just like with sports in real life, there are those of us who enjoy team based stuff and those who enjoy individual based things.

I can enjoy co-op like in shmups or beat em ups, but I hate multi player where you compete against other players like racers or fighters

Congrats on hitting the Kickstarter goal. I'm really pleased to see it got there in the end - it's definitely well deserved if the demo is anything to go by!

I've noticed a bit of chat about SGII on the Kickstarter updates. My friendly unsolicited advice would be to perhaps focus on getting the physical DC release wrapped up before turning attention to the sequel. Hopefully that doesn't come across too negatively, it's just I think the work that is required for the design, manufacture and distribution of the physical game shouldn't be underestimated. If this last part of the process is implemented well, then it will also increase people's appetites to back a sequel further down the line.

Ok, so you would agree with the option to be considered.and incorporated...

Just need to combine both playstyles. Also have a look at the mega drive version of shadow dancer which lets you disable the shurikens in the options menu so you can play through the game with punches, kicks & your katana (something I would’ve loved to have seen in Shadow Gangs because it makes for a completely different play style without changing anything about the game)

Check out both video’s and you’ll see how it can be done

Maybe games like "Contra Hard Corps" help? it could be a total explosive action game that blows two minds at the same time!

I agree with the same opinion. Maybe a completely different stages where you have only fire weapons (an enemies who shoot you), in Streets of Rage Remake (fan mod) there is a extra mod where you have many gun fire, enemies shooting,etc you have to pick up one or easily die, a completly distorted idea from original SOR style, but a change that feels good, at least for a stage..

Of course Shadow Gangs on the Dreamcast is priority number 1.
I have already started looking for the manufacturing and distribution side, and I am now weighing my options :)
There will be some big surprises coming regarding Shadow Gangs Dreamcast, but won't say anything about it!

The sequel, it's happening, it started and hopefully will be done. But it will take some years...3 to 4 :shock:

In order to start shadow gangs 2 in good conditions, focus on Shadow Gangs Dreamcast seems the best way to follow.

When the time will come to focus on the sequel, tools probably evolved and new ideas come by themselves.

Things are moving regarding SG Dremacast, will keep you updated :)
Don't worry, for SG II, I am not doing any code until SG I is shipped.
For now, SG II is started by the artists, I will not code for it until shipment to backers of SG I is initiated 8-)
