Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs is an all-new 2D 16-Bit style run’n’gun shoot-’em-up that is based upon the original series from 1986. The Kickstarter debuted on September 5th 2015 with a target of $75,000.
The Dreamcast release was initially a stretch goal, but strong response from the fans convinced the developers to make the Dreamcast version a core part of the Kickstarter. To celebrate the announcement, they also released a downloadable Dreamcast Demo (with screenshots, music and VMU support) that potential consumers could burn and boot up on Dreamcast.
On Thursday, October 1st 2015, the team successfully reached their target and have stretch goals for rewards exceeding $200,000, but there is still time to contribute to their project!
There are two versions available for the SEGA Dreamcast: A $49 regular edition and a $100 2 disc limited edition.
Yesterday, Water Melon developer of the illusive Pier Solar and publisher of the upcoming Elysian Shadows revealed that they have signed on as publishers for the game. They are a fitting match as the developer plans to port the game to SNES.
The Dreamcast port of the game is scheduled for Q2 2017
