Shortly after DCS: 2013 In Review Part 3 was published, I received an extended update from Patbier developer of Dynamite Dreams. So without further ado here is the full email:
“Thanks for asking news about Dynamite Dreams.
We were unable to finish the game in 2013, due to our “real jobs” which are our main priority and were very complicated this year.
Nonetheless, what an extraordinary year! We have been showing off Dynamite Dreams on our Dreamcast at several events; the PGR 2013, in France, at Pinon, Japan Expo 2013, Infoticaires 2013, Pitch My Game at the EIGD 2013, Retro vers le Futur 2013 (Ordiretro), Japan Touch 2013, at Lyon (Association Replay) and Retro-gaming Connexion 2013. It is incredible to realize thousands of people have played our game on our own Dreamcast.
Through out 2013, we worked hard on the last (but not the least) parts which is polishing the game. Namely, fixing the bugs found in beta-tests, improving artificial intelligence & gameplay, adding more options in menus while making it clearer and simpler.
We also added 53 special characters, based on famous French journalists, people who helped us, and participants who won our tournaments!
It’s totally incredible that our game makes main stream media talk about Dreamcast for example Gameblog.fr where Dynamite Dreams was mentioned along with great names like Aleksi Briclot, David Cage, and Ryuji Kochi.
It’s impossible to give a release date for the moment, as the last bit of development totally depend of our free time. But do not worry!
In march 2014, we will be at “MJC Pixel Event 2” at Le Mans, France, where we will show Dynamite Dreams to about 300-400 people!
If you still love your Dreamcast, and are waiting for Dynamite Dreams, please follow us on our Facebook page or on Twitter (@DynamiteDreamsD). We are near to 400 follower (FB + TW), it’s very motivating to see this number increasing!”
I have already gone ahead and liked their FaceBook page, it has tons of awesome pictures including one with video game legend Fredrick Reynal.
I also think that Dynamite Dreams will be playable at Midwest MGC 2014. I think it could be Goat Store’s secret reveal this year, I have sent Pat and Dan an email and will update this post if they reply, though they may keep it under wraps till April.
