You may remember Floigan Bros., Visual Concepts attempt at an episodic game for the SEGA Dreamcast that wasn’t the usual sports title expected from the developer. Sadly the episodic nature of the series never saw the light of day, as only the first episode starring Moigle and Hoigle Floigan released. Despite being cut short, what we got in the first episode was a very fun and funny game that combined elements of point and click adventures, a-life and platforming mini-games.
The game also took advantage of the Dreamcast’s internet capabilities with DLC called “FMTs” (Fun Moigle Things) that released monthly and were themed to the calendar month, offering up costumes, mailbox goodies and a new mini-game. Unfortunately, by the time the game’s site shut down, only the January DLC was archived online. However, thanks to Tim Meekins, Nick Jones, and John Elliot of the original Floigan Bros. development team and fansite Dreamcast Live all the original DLC is available to download again! To download the DLC, click on over to Dreamcast Live’s blog post, and in an effort to preserve the DLC moving forward we’ve gone ahead and archived it ourself with links after the break.
You can learn more about the DLC in a video after the break. Also worth noting, the SEGAbits Swingin’ Report Show podcast had the privilege of interviewing Brian Silva, who originated the idea for the game at Visual Concepts (he also voiced Bubsy!) and if you’d like to learn more about Floigan Bros. history we highly recommend listening to the episode.
