Nice addition to the Dreamcast library, a genre you hardly see! Will definitely pre-order this game(s) once available! :D

Just awesome! Now we need to see Myst ported. I tried to get it done years ago but the guy porting it wasn't ready yet.

WOW 2010! Man it has been a long time!

Last post here on his blog was August of 2014, so don't know if he ever finished porting it. Honestly there are years of posts to go through at this point. 5 whole years.

If anybody can see if he finished it please post here to let me know. I would be willing to make a CDI of it for Dreamcast.

This make me think of Myst for sure. Ah Myst... It's been a long while since I've been into point and click games (The Journeyman Project series also comes to mind) but this will be a fresh addition!

Awesome thanks mazonemayu. I see they have a video posted too. Appears to be an older video from different platform though.

Yes, I believe it was initially written for the Jaguar, but he decided to release it on the DC instead, so I assume it'll be a port of sorts.

Still, I think this is quite impressive, it was made by a single person after all

Both games are actually for sale for the Atari Jaguar (CD), so this should be a port of those, unless there might be enhancements for the DC. Not a bad thing at all, the more games the merrier :)

There were no enhancements for Alice so I guess these will be straight ports too.

While I'm not exactly a fan of Hucast's customer service and, well... their way of doing things, I am happy for Orion.
