Open Sonic Beta for the Dreamcast has been released.

Pulled from DCEmu.

"Open Sonic is a free open-source game based on the "Sonic the Hedgehog" universe. It introduces a different style of gameplay called cooperative play, in which it's possible to control 3 characters simultaneously. Unlike most similar games, Open Sonic provides a greater level of interaction between the player and the levels. It's more than just a jump'n'run; the user must come up with some strategy in order to get through the levels." (Open Sonic)

There is also an open version of The Great Giana Sister game.

Note that this is based off the original not the sequel that is currently being worked on, Giana's Return.

Looking forward to checking out OpenSonic. A lot of people are reporting it as a cool game with a funky gimmick.

This Giana Sisters game looks pretty cool aswell. The more Giana the merrier I say! It's cool that such an obscure title gets such a devoted following.

It's a fun game with some slowdowns when character gets hit.I wish there were separate coins for each character and it sucks when one character dies its game over.

Yeah I noticed the slowdown in OpenSonic. Luckily it doesn't ruin the experience. It's still awesome to finally have a 2D Sonic game on the DC. More please!

Can't seem to be able to download the CDI for the Giana Sisters game aswell.
