With so many new Dreamcast projects in the works, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of what is happening where. We’ve laid off reporting on Elysian Shadows due to our lack of knowledge of the title. Things however, are looking far clearer today with an update from the team’s Facebook page detailing their movements recently.
The game is shaping up to be a fantastic old-school RPG title that Dreamcast fans have been yearning for since the consoles ‘demise’ in 2001.
Elysian Shadows is described as ‘an Indie 2D RPG seeking to fuse elements of the old school 2D RPG classics with modern gameplay, dynamic lighting, physics and music”.
Below is a status report taken from the teams official Facebook, a link of which can be found below.
“Recruited a new web developer to help completely revamp our site and rebrand us, recruited a new core Engine/Lua developer to help offset Falco’s current low-level R&D role, we’re still discussing potential YouTube partnerships, and we are talking with two very good candidates for the iOS and Droid implementations of libGyro… We are also having a gigantic game development extravaganza spanning the entire weekend with a few local fans and some “old” faces showing up for AiGD 22… Please help us spread the word of our project and videos. We are starting the initial phases of growing our audience for an all-out Kickstarter campaign. Please help us make the game of our dreams… We want to deliver to you a true “next-gen” 2D RPG experience, and we are pouring our hearts and souls into this project”
