New Homebrew Sydney Hunter

Post#1 » Tue Jul 28, 2020 5:32 am

Michel Louvet, YouTuber of the "Oldschool is beautiful" channel offered us an adaptation of a game a few days ago : Sydney Hunter.
This is what he tells us on Twitter :

Il y à plus de 5 ans j'avais commencé le portage de Sydney Hunter sur #Sega #Dreamcast. Sans nouvelle de l'éditeur, j'ai lâché l'affaire. Ce travail j'y avais mis du coeur et du temps, aujourd'hui je décide de le partager sans autorisation

/!\ Warning /!\ For those who want to test it on an emulator, it does not work on Demul but works on NullDC on the other hand

A video of the snes version for those who want to see what it looks like :

As far as i understand this game suppose to be a commercial project with CollectorVision Games as a publisher (or developer). CollectorVision Games and its members are active at social networks so maybe we should contact them and ask what happened with Dreamcast version (port).

It seems like Collectorvision also works at some other game or games:

But i do not remember if they ever released anything for Dreamcast...

Another topic here about this game most likely need to be merged viewtopic.php?f=53&t=6179&start=10

The creator of this port worked on it for a long time and it seems the publisher ghosted him never responding about anything. This is translated from the French quote in the original post.

More than 5 years ago I started porting Sydney Hunter on #Sega #Dreamcast. Without news from the publisher, I dropped the case. I had put my heart and time into this work, today I decide to share it without authorization


Oh well, they never did anything with this and had all the chances in the world to release a retail version. Their loss is ouu gain! I had wondered when we would ever see this, or if we would! I was excited to hear about the port years ago, but nothing ever came from it. It has been a long time.

Thank you so much for sharing this ShindouGo! :mrgreen:
