XENOCIDER For Dreamcast

We just came back to our homes after reuniting in Madrid for an intensive work weekend, mainly focused on turning Xenocider on a more complete, playable (and re-playable) experience. We all live in different cities, so we keep each other updated via Skype or Hangouts and do regular video-meetings when we are done with our jobs, which usually means quite late at night. But once in a while, meeting and testing things in person is worth the trip...

Lots of updates, learn more here!

That's great to hear that very little modifications are needed for KallistiOS.

Everything looks great, even better that I see you guys using Blender too.

Only 10 copies of the PAL edition and 18 copies of the steelbook edition are still available. So we figured we might as well start doing some tests...
Pre-order Xenocider today! :D http://retrosumus.com/shop/

Every 3D model in Xenocider is created with Blender, yes :)

I'm happy to see that you guys are making some serious progress!

Once lighting comes in, it's going to look amazing.

Lead programmer Chui shows off his skills playing the hardest Xenocider level he's coded so far. Reflexes and memorization are everything when you're trying to make it through the Transistor Highway. This is 100% real Dreamcast hardware!

Xenocider meeting. A good start, I would say.


Juanjo shows off some really cool equipment none of us understands a word about. He's currently working on the music for the bonus stages.


Chui (Linux), Abel (Windows) and Carlos (Mac). Time for lots of tests, tweaks, arguments, and pizza.


So, while I'm busy with some layout design tests, apparently Abel's phone is warning him to update his watch? What a strange world we live in.

New stage, new enemies (lots of them actually), a huge influence from the Shinobi series (both design and music wise), some nice transparency effects here and there and... Sakura's Realm is here :D

One of our first "real" physical tests for the Steelbook Edition. High quality vinyl over a slight relief on the surface (both front and back covers). Other options being explored at the moment :)
Only 8 copies still available! http://retrosumus.com/product/xenocider-steelbook-edition/


Accessing the bonus stage by reaching a high score or finding a specific item? More enemies or just stronger ones? Power-ups or upgrades between levels? Decisions, decisions...

My personal favourite version (all my DC games are japanese, or indies with jp-style covers):



And from our Xenocider work weekend, a couple teasers of stage 7... ;)





We have a very nice reveal coming later too :D
