NG:DEV.TEAM has recently released its latest run and gun video game for the SEGA Dreamcast. The game, called GunLord, is now available on Play-Asia, an online retailer that specializes on foreign-published titles that are quite difficult to find in America. The Regular Edition is $39.99 and the Limited Edition, featuring a soundtrack, is $49.99. Additionally, the Dragon’s Box (also known as special collector’s edition,) which includes a DVD slipcase, an exclusive poster and some stickers, can be preordered for $119.99.
For those unfamiliar with GunLord, the game is the latest project from NG:DEV.TEAM, a German independent developer who has worked on other run and gun and old-school shooters for many years. The recently released side-scrolling shooter though, is a 16-bit game with non-linear action that features nine stages, hand-drawn graphics, bosses (apparently that’s a bullet point now,) internet capabilities, VMU support and everything will be running at 60 FPS.
It’s worth pointing out that the company has been actively working for a few years now and they have been publishing exclusive games for consoles that most people don’t use anymore. Those who kept their Dreamcast should seriously consider getting a copy of this region free game (even if it’s the Regular Edition,) after all, how many Dreamcast games get announced after a decade and a half of the console being released. Also, it has bosses!
