Dreamcast Shmup announced: Sturmwind

RedSpotGames, an independant publisher for indie commercial Dreamcast games, has announced a new Dreamcast shmup, and is to be available via their store sometime in 2011.

The shop page has a decent list of features, aswell as an interview with one of the developers from Duranik (who are developing the game)


* 16 Levels
* 3 selectable difficulty levels
* configurable controls
* adjustable screen position
* different weapons selectable
* More than 20 large bossenemies
* Hundreds of different enemies
* FMV intro sequence
* Hybrid 2d/3d game engine
* Resolution 640x480
* PAL50, PAL60, NTSC and VGA (with Adapter) compatible
* Region Free
* Works with any MIL-CD compatible Dreamcast
* CDDA Sound
* Supports: Joypad, Arcade Stick (Analog/Digital), VMU, Rumble Pack
* (configurable)
* Internet WEBcode Hiscore Tables
* Award Trophy System with unlockable content

While features such as configurable controls, and 3 selectable difficulty levels have obviously become standard, it's great to see VGA support, aswell as what seems to be a rather large selection of levels. It'll be interesting to see what kind of system they use for the level playability. A Darius-esque multiple paths option is welcome, but personally I'm hoping for some real creativity when it comes to level selection. An FMV intro sequence, and extra unlockable content is just icing on the cake.

A few screenshots have already been released (courtesy of RedSpotGames), and so far it's looking great, You can preorder from the site, and they won't actually charge you until the game ships. If you have a Dreamcast, please support this small company. The more it sells, the more awesome indie Dreamcast games we get in the future. 'Nuff said
