Elysian Shadows: Confirming It’s Still Thinking
By Brandon Ditto | August 3rd, 2014
Oddly enough, Dreamcast’s indie scene was never something that I was really interested in. The experiences DC’s indie games delivered are perhaps not as engaging as some of the good commercial releases for the system. There’s a lot of 2D shoot-em-ups in the indie library. While I can appreciate a good shooter from time to time, these sometimes 320×240 res games aren’t exemplifying the Dreamcast’s strengths (don’t get me wrong, the 320×240 Dreamcast arcade games are still great!). I didn’t think an indie Dreamcast game could get me excited; to make me feel like we have a console that can provide modern gaming fun. But after over a decade since Dreamcast’s death, we finally have a deeper, enthralling experience us Dreamcast fans can be excited for: Elysian Shadows.
Dreamcast Alternate 3D-Perspective Menu

Perhaps as a parting gift to Dreamcast fans, Sega published their final Dreamcast game (Japan-only) with quite a neat easter egg. Puyo Puyo Fever (Puyo Pop Fever when switched to English in the options menu) was the final Sega-published release for the Sega Dreamcast (2/24/04). Not only is it a great puzzle game, Sega programmed the game with an installable VMU file which would unlock the alternate Dreamcast BIOs menu.
