I dream of more Dremcast shmups, Dux pops in my mind

The Dreamcast never dies. Seven years after the machine went out of production indie publishers continue to support Sega’s final console with new games. Sometime in July the crew who released Last Hope will finish up work on Dux, another horizontal shoot ‘em up. However, Dux has a very different feel from their last project. It’s as if R-Type went back to its roots and had a child with Fantasy Zone. Take a look at video of the first stage.

Notice the force-like power up? It isn’t the only item reminiscent of R-Type. The linking ring X-Ray laser shown on the Hux development blog distinctly looks like the linking ring laser from Irem’s series. Even one of the bosses feels like the iconic Dobkeratops from the first stage. I guess this is good news for anyone who misses piloting R series ships rather than commanding a fleet of them.

 

While this may be the first time you heard of Dux some people are already queuing up to buy a copy. At least 100 people pre-ordered Dux since Hucast is out of their poster pre-order bonus. Dux costs 20 euros ($30) with or without a poster.
