Sega may have stopped manufacturing the Dreamcast more than a decade ago, but that didn't stop René Hellwig and KTX Software Development from creating Redux: Dark Matters, a new game released today for the console.

The Kickstarter-funded shoot-em-up was delayed several times but is purchasable now from the Hucast online store for €54.95 (approximately $75.16) with worldwide shipping available. The two-disc edition of the game includes seven stages with "huge boss enemies," according to the developer, and a soundtrack by Andre Neumann, demos for which you can hear on Neuman's SoundCloud page.

In a post last month on the game's Kickstarter blog, the developer explained the game's delay.

"At this point we'd like to apologize for the recent lack of communication and for the delays, but we found it was smarter to make the game as polished as possible and not to rush things out," the post reads. "The beta testing phase of Redux was quite time consuming but we think the Beta testers did a great job."
