Pretty sweet. Its a shame it didnt come out soon enough to be in any of the contest.

Yeah i would have thought it would have given the other games a run for their money.

Graphically its on a par with Alice but in a diferent way in my opinion.

I'm going to burn this tonight, sounds great and I'm sure I won't be dissapointed - now where the hell did I put my lightgun? :-[

:D Great game, excellent work Vortexx, can't wait to see more updates to this one 8), Can this be modded by the user?

By the way, the plain files package on the revolver page (plainrevolver.zip) is a CDI image, guess you guys mixed up the zips in all the excitement about the game ::).

Thanks guys.

I hope for the scripting to be moddable in the future. currently the scripting it created in real-time on the dreamcast and saved to PC.

There is alot of stuff I still want to do with this, and I won't get back to this for about a month. I'm finishing up college over the next month so I've got lots of assignments/tests to study for so there will be 0% activity on this until the end of May. After that I'll probably get back into this and add more options, enemies, levels and some more surprises.
