In July we published a survey asking your opinion about the future of Titan Game Studios. In total 60 people answered the survey and helped us define our next steps.
In the survey 75.5% answered that they would like to see a physical copy for Titan IDE. 85.7% said they would like to see an option to export to Sega Saturn. 85.7% said they would like to buy a kit that is already ready to connect the Dreamcast online. And finally, respondents said they would like to see a portal dedicated to the indie scene for the Sega consoles and also online gameplay on Dreamcast.
As Titan Game Studios is a fan-made project and we do our activities in our spare time, we will fulfill the requests as much as possible. To begin with, we would like to show you the Titan IDE (Dreamcast and PC) Physical copy:

Our plan is to make it available on the website in December. The DVD will come with two templates for platform games, a template for RPG game, a template for Shoot ’em up, a digital manual in Portuguese and English and finally, an ISO and an EXE of a game developed using the Titan IDE in which you will be able to play on your PC or burn this ISO and play in your Dreamcast.
The Titan IDE will always be a free tool that will be available for download on our website. This update that will be on the DVD will also be available for download. The idea of having a physical edition is something for collectors and also something to help with our project. We do not have a price yet, we are looking for a graphic company with the best cost so that the printing of the DVDs will be affordable.
Following with the survey results, we created a page on FaceBook called Dreamcast Ultimate, this page was created to address Indie games, homebrews, mods, online games, canceled games, applications and everything that makes Dreamcast a unique console.
The Dreamcast Ultimate will be powered by the Titan Game Studios website. All projects not related to Titan Game Studios will be published on this page, our projects will continue to be shared on the Titan Game Studios Facebook page. In this way we will keep the organization.
And finally, to celebrate the American anniversary of the Dreamcast, we wrote a mini book telling the story of the Dreamcast after Sega discontinued the console. The mini book can be downloaded here (Soon in English):
Happy Dreamcast day.
