I looked at the dreamcast specs, a port is not straightforward.
The main reason being the memory of the dreamcast, both video and ram are not going to run Shadow Gangs as it is currently.
But with some optimizations, and having the dreamcast specs in mind it should be doable. (not easy, but doable for sure).
As you said, I better concentrate on the PC version which I think ultimately what I will do, as I want to implement good playability and gameplay over anything else.
I know you only have 3 posts on this forum but I think you are probably unaware of how the dreamcast community works but one word of advice would be making a dreamcast version of your game a top priority will go a long way in terms of securing kickstarter funds. orry if I sound a bit rude
I have connections with other programmers who will be more than happy to tackle the dreamcast.
I'll do some search about the dreamcast, and study the issue in more details and will let you know soon what is the plans for it
I'll also be happy to see Shadow Gangs on the dreamcast, even if I don't own one at the moment.
