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.
The second annual Dream On contest ended 10 days ago, and the results are now in. Here are the winners:
1) Nibbler by JMD
2) Xump by kedo and GPF (and the Psilocybin Development Team)
1) DOSBoxDC by GPF and the DOSBox team
2) MSXCast by LTK and Marat Fayzullin
1) VMU CD by bucanero
2) Blobwars by quzar and Parallel Realities
Update: The special prize results are now in as well. JMD couldn’t decide whether to give the signed Maqiupai prize to ron or quzar, so he’s decided to increase the prize to two signed Maqiupai games and give them to both coders.
He stated that he’s given them to these coders due to their large contributions of ports submitted to the contest, and to ron in particular for the good he’s done for the Dreamcast scene and how well he represents the Spanish Dreamcast scene.
