Dream On at the Midwest Gaming Classic

The GOAT Store, in cooperation with, Cyberdog Castle, has released Dreamcast projects at the Midwest Gaming Classic.

The winners of the Dream On contest, held jointly by The GOAT Store and Cyberdog Castle, Inhabitants and Maqiupai, are available for sale at The GOAT Store’s booth at the convention.

In addition, Cyberdog Castle also will give away copies of the first issue of the Dream On Magazine at this year’s MGC.

The two newest indie Dreamcast retail games will be available on The GOAT Store website after the convention is over.

Dream On Contest Winners

I just received the last results from the judges. The winners are as follows:

1.) Inhabitants by S+F Software
2.) Maqiupai by JMD
3.) Boll by Fredrik Ehnbom

The other entries were Whispered Secrets by Ian Micheal and Trampalien Gunmen by GPF. The latter was a port which did not qualify for prizes, but all entries were awesome regardless.

I will be contacting the winners shortly to arrange the shipping of prizes. The winners of the pressed CD have already been contacted by The GOAT Store.

Thank you to every single one of the entrants for making this contest a success. 🙂

Chikugoyaku Has Been Postponed

For various reasons, the Chikugoyaku release that was supposed to occur today has been postponed. I’m not sure of the date that it will be released, but I promise it will not be that long.

This is a good thing, as the graphics have been completely revamped, and the gameplay completely redone. This plays more like a game than the game that inspired it (Panic for SegaCD). It’s a very fun and unique 4-player party game that I think you all will enjoy. I’ve been working hard to make the 1 player storymode enjoyable as well. There are now bonuses to unlock, and much more. I’ll try to release a demo version in a few days.

To the patient people who have Chikugoyaku on preorder, thank you for your support and patience, I promise that the release date will not be too far from now.

Chikugoyaku Preorders Open

Chikugoyaku is the first game to be released by Cyberdog Castle for the Sega Dreamcast video game system. The story-line is as follows: you are an apprentice to a magician who sends you out on an errand. You are entrapped by your master’s rival in an enchanted mansion. Your master has cast a protection spell on you that allows you to come back from death 15 times.

It is a game of chance – you have a choice of three doors – one leads to the next set of three doors, the other two lead to certain death. The game features humorous death animations in the vein of the SegaCD game “Panic”. Over 100 animations and 50 sets of doors await. The game is $4.99 and is a preorder. This game will ship when 100 preorders are collected or on February 21, 2004.
