Even though the Dreamcast’s lifespan officially ended around 2001, our favorite console has been delivering great games thanks to the dedicated fanbase and talented indie developers. A couple of months back, The Dreamcast Junkyard reported on a unnamed FPS game that was in development for the Dreamcast.
In a recent update, the indie developers that were working on this unnamed FPS game have announced that the game is called In the Line of Fire. This story-driven FPS is being developed by Indie developer Militia Studio and a video of a playable build of the game has been released, which you can check out above.
“The game will be an FPS (of course given the demo). We can indeed squezee a better render quality I’m very confident on that. We have the next few weeks to improve the AI and solve a little issue with the collision/clipping. The sound designer will replace the default generic sound effects for some custom nice ones and this is just a small preview of what we can do. The full fledged demo will be way better than the alpha we sent out for review. We have a big next step in the works, sooner than you think..” — JUG
A Kickstarter has also been announced to launch quite soon, which will help the funding of development. We’re very excited to see the continued progress of In the Line of Fire!
