The Dreamcast Scene is going to be very active this fall German Publisher redspotgames won’t have a new Dreamcast game out his year, but they are not letting that get in the way of the celebrations, in order to keep the scene active they have permanently dropped prices of Wind & Water: Puzzle Battle (13.25) and Rush Rush Rally Racing (29.25).
American Publisher and Pioneer of indie games for Dreamcast GOAT Store have the best offer though, as they will give a free copy of Feet of Fury (the first indie game ever made) to anyone who buys anything from them no price limit (well the cheapest item on the store is 24 cents, just under a quarter), which is perfect cause they run the largest online Dreamcast Store, from batteries for your VMU to Japanese imports they have everything at economical prices.
GSP’s heart felt press release after the jump:
GOAT STORE PUBLISHING’s Press Release:
Hey everyone, it’s been a while but I just wanted to drop in for a quick note… The holidays are here, and for my family that means Christmas. We’re celebrating it and it’s a blast — for the first year, my 10 month old son is seeing what the holidays for him are like, and he’s enjoying playing with the new toys he is getting, and my wife and I are enjoying watching him with all these new experiences.
I’ve been very blessed to have a lot of different families in life — direct relatives, friends, communities I interact with online — all of these groups in one way or another become family in a different way. And this is the season to celebrate those relationships, whether it is with friends that you just met, or family you’ve had for your life. Whether you celebrate Christmas like us, or any other holiday, make it a happy one and tell those around you that you are happy they are around.
Although it isn’t much, as a thank you for your support of the GOAT Store and to honor our developer community that we’ve developed — GOAT Store Publishing is definitely it’s own family, when my son was born I had developers send me congratulation cards! — we’re giving anyone who orders from the GOAT Store site anything between now and the end of 2010 a free copy of Feet of Fury with your order. It’s our way of saying thanks for supporting us, and for being part of our extended family.
Happy Holidays everyone!
