Sturmwind delayed till 11-11-11. Improvements being made.

Redspotgames have just revealed that Sturmwind, it's next scrolling shooter for the Dreamcast, has been delayed. The reasoning being that the developers Duranik are making some major improvements to the game including a revision of the weapon system and plenty of extra polish based on feedback they have had from beta tests and the like. The new release date is planned for 11/11/11. I like it, reminds me of 9/9/99! You can read the full statement here.

While we'll have to wait a bit longer for the game to release this can only be seen as good news as it means we will be getting a even better game that hasn't been rushed out the door! I have yet to pre-order, but that's only because i'm waiting to see if they will announce a special edition first!

I'm actually glad it was pushed back. I'd much prefer a better game. :D Plus, less of a chance for it to share a release month with other indie releases, like gunlord.

I don't mind if it means a great game.

I might buy this one, but I say that every time a new DC game is announced.

Yeah, it is better this way. As long as we are still getting 1 game this year.

I just don't want a year to go by that there is no new indie games, as every single year since 1998 the Dreamcast has gotten retail games each and every year since it was released.

Not a single year has gone by where we didn't get at least one game. 2010 was a close call, but Fast Striker came out just in the nick of time. ;)

Lets hope that we continue to get Dreamcast retail releases for years to come!

Also, I just blogged about a new and upcoming 3D homebrew engine that I think all of you should read about!

Independent developers want to financially back it!

Let me know what you guys think, we can finally have worthy indie titles that truly push the system to its limits!
