German TV show reveals a new Dreamcast game

One of the more under-appreciated game genres that seemed to proliferate on Sega's consoles was the side-scrolling arcade shooter. But Sega's console days are long gone. Or are they? As revealed on the German TV show 3Sat, Redspot Games is working on a brand new Dreamcast game called Sturmwind.


The Dreamcast was officially discontinued in 2001, but many Sega fans believe it was never given a fair shake, and as such it still sits in the entertainment centers of players all around the world. At least, that's what some people, including Redspot, would like to believe.

This isn't just some fun little side project to prove a Dreamcast game can still be made. It's a massive, fully-developed adventure with 16 levels, 20 bosses, three difficulty levels, and VMU support.

It's region free and works on any MIL-CD compatible Dreamcast system.

The game is available now for pre-order, at It sells for 34.95 euros, or around $46.

Just when you thought you'd seen it all, something like this happens. If you don't believe us, here's the video proof:

    The nostalgia is nice, but how many copies of this are they expecting to sell? I doubt they'll re-coupe the development cost. Stick it on a viable console if you guys actually want to make money.

    i will forever say that the Dreamcast was the best system for its time. its sad, though, how bad it sold, but this game may mark the return of it. and by that i mean that this one game is the first of many steps in bringing the Dreamcast back.

    Man, I'd develop a new Dreamcast game to be in the same room as her. And then I'd rape her.

    Wait. wait. wait. A new Dreamcast game? This would have been great about a generation back but now.... I honestly see this as going badly.

    First? That looks like Zero Gunner 2 for dreamcast but I think you could only get it imported, great game by the way!
