Very cool. I've been wanting to hear a little more about the releases.
I still can't wait for GOAT Games, been looking forward to it for ages, it seems. And Blocks^2 sounds very intriguing now. I'm glad to hear that those two should be released this year, they both soun dlike must-gets to me.
R3K could be absolutle fantastic, too. It's a really fun game concept (really better than Tempest, in my opinion, since that's what everyone always compares it to) and with a proper visual style, it could be a tryly great game on the Dreamcast. It would be keen to have some great music in it with the targets responding to the music.
Dan didn't seem to have much info on some of the more distant projects, but I definitely hope they come out cool.
Oh, and personally, I think homebrew is a better and more meaningful term for most of these games than "independent," no matter what some "industry" muckity-mucks think.
