Hucast announces Alice’s Mom’s Rescue, an indie 2D platformer for the SEGA Dreamcast


Hucast, the folks behind DUX, Redux: Dark Matters, and Ghost Blade, have recently announced another indie title slated for the SEGA Dreamcast. The game, given the odd title of Alice’s Mom’s Rescue, is a pixel art platformer in which Alice (potentially of Wonderland fame) must rescue her mom from a giant raven. The game will feature three worlds with twenty five stages, and gameplay includes battling evil animals and using magic mushrooms to change Alice’s height. The game will support 240p, RGB cable, S-video, and VGA and is due to release on March 23rd, 2015.

The game is up for pre-order in two styles, a 2-disc limited edition in a DVD case featuring the game, the soundtrack, and a 12 page manual for 42.95 euros and a standard edition which features the game in a jewel case with a 4 page manual for 24.95 euros. Check out screens from the game in the gallery below, and see the game in motion over at Vimeo.

    I was weary of this before viewing the video due to hucast’s recent reputation, but the video has cemented my non-purchase as however interesting the game may be the scrolling of the screen when jumping gives me a hint of motion sickness (not particularly useful in a platformer).

    This is all the Dreamcast can do anymore? I know it’s been available for some time but why only 2D affairs every time now when the Dreamcast can do so much more than that…these kind of graphic engines have been around a while now so by now even any Joe public can learn to code this given a bit of time and effort, 3D has been around as long now as what 2D has from the late 80’s to the 00’s – where 3D was well incorporated into the mainstream by then, you’d think that learning to code 3D projects was pretty standard by now for independent projects. Don’t mind 2D most of the time but it would be good to see something other than that every now and then for a change.

    As long as it’s Dreamcast. I wonder, do people still support even the Playstation 1 or/and two? Hardly hear anything from these systems, yet the Dreamcast is still featured and mentioned in the news regularly enough, I think that tells all there is to know, Dreamcast owners had a real love for the system where as Playstation owners were mainly with theirs because it was viable to be so at the time and to fit in with their associated crowd of choice, they were desperate conformers, not hardcore stand out individualists.
