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.
Dan Loosen has posted news about the status of Inhabitants and Maqiupai as well as future Goat Store games in this topic on the Dcemulation forums. Here is an excerpt from the post:
WE ARE BACK IN PRODUCTION! Yes, that’s right! The games are FINALLY being pressed! I don’t yet have a timeline, but I will keep everyone updated as best as I can. What I was guessing would happen did not happen… at least not in the way that I was guessing it would. Basically, you’ll have to trust me when I say that there is a LOT of stuff that I don’t have the authority to talk about, but has gone right. We officially did not end up with the permission that I sought. The future of production DC games (however) looks very secure. And the system will be much more streamlined. As soon as I can get everything lined up, you should start hearing news about the next two games that we are getting ready to put into production. The first one is GOAT Games Vol. 1, as many people could probably guess. The second game should be a big surprise to many of you
The GOAT store is also setting up an affiliate program for which you can have a link or a banner on your website and for every sale that is made through that referral link, you get 5% of that sale.
So get the news of these games out by spreading the word to every game site, review site, and news site that you can think of, and join the affiliate program to get a percentage of the sales!
It’s been a long time. First off, big thanks go to Nemesiscakewafer for the awesome site redesign of Cyberdog Castle’s website. He did an excellent job – much better than what I would have been capable of creating. 🙂
Second, on the status of Chikugoyaku: Chikugoyaku will be included in The Goat Store‘s GOAT (Games of All Types) Compilation Disc #1, which should be out sometime next year.
