Henshin Engine passes Dreamcast release stretch goal on Kickstarter

Henshin Engine is a game based on a web comic that is set to release in early 2017 to PC-Engine/TurboGrafx-16 and PC CD-Rom/Steam. The game features 2D action platforming and was programmed from the ground up for classic systems. With 6 days remaining in their Kickstarter campaign, Henshin Engine is $8,000 past their $16,400 goal, meaning they’ve started to chip away at their stretch goals. Of interest to SEGA fans is the promise of a Dreamcast post, set to release in late 2017, should the campaign pass $22,400. Given they are $2,000 past this goal, a Dreamcast version seems assured, though the developer has yet to release an update sharing this news.

When we have more details, we’ll be sure to share it! In the meantime, if you missed the news, last week the Henshin Engine team announced a character crossover collaboration with the Strike Harbinger team. Meaning Strike Harbinger, a game inspired by classic SEGA franchises, will see an appearance on the SEGA Dreamcast by way of this crossover collaboration.

    The Dreamcast Junkyard website has a few doubts about this project it seems ~ http://www.thedreamcastjunkyard.co.uk/2016/10/how-genuine-is-henshin-engine.html#more

      I’m aware of that story, as I am a DCJY writer so I see what is up behind the scenes in article planning. I personally do not totally share Ross’s views. I think the Facebook likes numbers are absurdly high, but it was explained in paid posts targeting territories that are cheap to post paid posts in. The total discrepancy is largely due to shipping costs, which Ross failed to note until I told him about it. If there is another 1-2K unaccounted for, that is likely from a few larger backings. Likely friends and PC Engine enthusiasts.

    I honestly don’t know what to believe now.
