    Default Redux Developer Deceptive Marketing Scandal

    via http://www.dreamcast-scene.com/news/...eting-scandal/

    Hucast, developer of 2009 Dreamcast exclusive shooter Dux, and itís upcoming shooter Redux: Dark Matters, is at the center of a deceptive marketing scandal centered around the stand alone release of DUX 1.5.According to Reduxís Kickstarter page; Dux 1.5 was part of a 2-disk set for the Limited Edition of the game, which would be restricted to only a thousand copies.
    Redux: Dark Matters Limited Edition for Sega Dreamcast and DUX 1.5 for Sega Dreamcast (2 disc set)! Only 1000 copies will EVER be produced. Available exclusively on Kickstarter!
    In addition to a stand alone release, Dux 1.5 is also bundled with Redux Regular Edition. Consequently Hucast has effectively released a bundle which surpasses the limited edition as the Limited Edition gives buyers just the game disk where as the regular edition bundle packages Dux 1.5, separately with case and manuals.
    Fans have taken up their complaints on Hucastís Facebook page to which the developers responded by stating that Kick Starter backers who pledged their support with a 100$ would receive the game in a steel case and stated that they would try to avoid confusion in the future.
