The second location of this year’s show will be at the Midwest Gaming Classic 2006, held from June 3rd to June 4th, 2006, returning after a year in hiatus. Exhibiting at the event will be DCSteve and Tommy Watson, who will be representing BOR Revolution, a site dedicated to showcasing games using the engines from Senile Team.
I will also once again be exhibiting at the event, representing Screamcast, Cydoca Entertainment, and Dreamcast-Scene. Dan Loosen from The GOAT Store is going to announce new games for the Dreamcast at the show. In addition, new information will be revealed about GOAT Games and DCastle.
Several games featuring the Beats of Rage engine were showcased, and a new video for Age of the Beast was shown. In addition, videos were shown for Blocks2, and screenshots were shown for Grizzlies: Forest Prelude and BurgerDC will once again be playable at the show. The Dream On contest winners, Dynamite Dreams and Feuer Frei, will also be shown for the first time.
This year, it’s been decided that the Dream On convention will be held at multiple locations.
The first stop of DreamCon 2006 will be held at Magfest 4 on January 13th, January 14th, and January 15th in Charlottesville, Virginia. As with the last DreamCon, a new playable GOAT Store Publishing game will be presented, only this time it was the first time the public will get a glimpse at the game. A demo of GOAT Games will be presented for the first time at the show.
Curt Grymala, representing DC Evolution and DCHelp will return with the “burning station” setup from the last year and will have new compilations to hand out to the convention attendees.
I will represent The GOAT Store, Dreamcast-Scene, and Cydoca Entertainment. Playable versions of Feet of Fury, Maqiupai, Inhabitants, Cool Herders, and the unlicensed Korean Dream Para Para will be available.
This year Screamcast will be represented at this convention by quzar. Screamcast will have Grizzlies: Forest Prelude and BurgerDC on show.
This year, the Midwest Gaming Classic won’t be held, so last year’s Dream On at the Midwest Gaming Classic is now the DreamCon. The convention will be held at the East Coast Gaming Expo on July 25th, 2005 in Reading, Pennsylvania.
As the Midwest Gaming Classic is the usual place for new GOAT Store Publishing games to debut, DreamCon 2005 will feature a playable demo of Cool Herders.
It will also be host to many familiar names from the Dreamcast community. Sam Steele will be present with updated versions of DCSquares and DCBlap. Lawrence Sebald will have updated versions of his RPGs, ljsdcdev and DCRPG on hand. I.M Weasel will have his Macintosh burning tools available. Curt Grymala will represent DC Evolution and DCHelp with a “burning station” and several of DC Evolution’s compilations available on a high-quality CD-R with a laser printed label and booklet with a CD case. I will represent The GOAT Store, Dreamcast-Scene, Screamcast, and Cydoca Entertainment. Playable versions of Grizzlies: Forest Prelude and Feet of Fury will be available. Fackue’s Dreamcast Development discs will also available to anyone who wanted to get into Dreamcast developing.
