New RPG in Production for DC, Elysian Shadows
"The Dreamcast will have exclusive features not seen on other platforms, such as VMU support and extra content. The team plans to push the Dreamcast hardware past its limits.
The game will feature a lighting system similar to that which is featured in modern 3D games to illustrate the passage of time. Characters within the game will have lives of their own, and every building in the game will have a purpose. There will be a heavy focus on exploration and the team wants to add many different types of environmental interactions to the game.
The battle system will be in real time as well, keeping the player on their toes. Not only are they building an amazing game, they are building an amazing toolkit and engine aspiring game developers can use to create their dream games.
They have a very large following on Youtube with their Adventures in Game Development series, which gives an inside look on the development process. The team hopes to start their Kickstarter campaign this summer to help push their game into the final stages of development. We would appreciate your support! The Kickstarter launches this year, a formal game release date as yet to be announced. "
Visually, Elysian Shadows reminds me of another Dreamcast RPG I played back in the day, Silver, but everything is still obviously early in production so it's difficult to make too much judgement. Definitely, one we will be keeping an eye on so remember to keep checking back for more updates.
