Redux: Dark Matters Another DC shooter!!

I never thought I'd be writing this again, potentially another DC shooter announced on Kickstarter if funding is approved. Looks like a sequel to DUX and from the screenshots it looks to be at an advanced stage of production - might even make that December deadline!!

Developed by René Hellwig from NG:DEV.TEAM (GunLord, Fast Striker, Last Hope and DUX) and KTX Software (The Haunted: Hells Reach, Gem'X iOS).

KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN:
Our goal is to publish "Redux: Dark Matters" on STEAM, XBLA and PSN. To achieve this, we are offering a Kickstarter exclusive preorder for a Limited Edition of Redux on Sega Dreamcast. Only 1000 copies will be produced ever! It will only be available, right now, exclusively through this Kickstarter campaign.

The required devkits to release on STEAM, XBLA and PSN are costly - so we are offering an exclusive Sega Dreamcast version of Redux: Dark Matters to fund the development for these additional platforms. We want to bring Redux to as many people as possible. Pledging your support directly makes this a reality!

The Sega Dreamcast is one of our personal favorite video game systems. We thought, what better way to reach our goals than to offer something we know or fans would love: a limited edition Sega Dreamcast version! Help keep the Sega Dreamcast alive by preordering a copy of Redux: Dark Matters today!

Supporting our campaign not only helps keep the Dreamcast alive - but directly helps us bring Redux to more platforms and more people.

DUX 1.5 INCLUDED WITH THE LIMITED EDITION:
On top of Redux: Dark Matters, the long awaited DUX 1.5 for Sega Dreamcast is finally here and it is included with the Limited Edition of Redux: Dark Matters. DUX 1.5 is a refined and polished version of the original DUX released in 2009. This is the only time and place it will ever be available! Two new games in one limited edition set!

PLATFORM RELEASE SCHEDULE:
JULY 2012 - iOS/iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

DECEMBER 2012 - Sega Dreamcast

TBA 2012 - STEAM, XBLA, & PSN

If you 'pledge' do you have to actually pay upfront? Its a nice idea, but I'm not sure I can pay $65 for a game which I might not see for a long time. On the other hand if I pledge and then in a years time when I've forgotten all about it I get a demand to pay out of the blue...

You're charged at the end of the fund raising period (8th of June in this case) only if the target has been met.

I am tempted to pledge but I'd be worried that the XBLA version would never materialise. I could possibly go for the soundtrack or DC version, though, I'm not decided.

Bloody hell! If it plays as good as it looks (unlike Dux) then this game could be brilliant! :D

They're not all that good. Imo, some are very mediocre.

I think I may have confused some retail releases with homebrew. I will type back

The original Dux was cool, kind of an R-Type fans wet dream, Last Hope was quite average I thought but Pink Bullets was great and the game the original should have been all the time.

For me the best DC indie shooter is Fast Striker, hands down it feels most like a balanced arcade shooter. You can tell it was play tested to death.

I've got high hopes for Redux Hucast/NGDEV. seem to be learning more and from each release

Surprising isn't it, was shocked to see that 2/3 of the $1000 packages have gone.
