If you remember Dreamers, Fenix is the codename for a GNU project to create a free compiler for a scripting language derived from the one created by Hammer Technologies for the game development suite, DIV Games Studio. It was superseded by BennuGD, a revision of Fenix language fixing bugs and adding more properties.
Three years ago, some colombian guys ported BennuGD to Dreamcast... but time passed fast and this port needed an upgrade. So... I took a look and here it is: an upgrade of BennuGD for our beloved console!
This new build is compatible with KOS 2.x, and has been build with SDL 1.2.13, SDL_Mixer 1.2.12, libpng 1.6.18 and freetype 2.6. It plays MOD music again (without any need of mod_dream), and it has support for 2 pads. Additionaly, it includes the extra "mod_ttf" for free... ;D
But what kind of news this would be without games, huh? Hey, you're right so... what about 3 new games, with source code included?? Yay, let's see them!!!
Wait!! You're cheating Indiket, it's not new!! ... Not exactly xD . Yes, it's the same but now has been adapted to BennuGD, and also fixed important bugs, so it should be even better! High five!
This is a classic guys, the original fighting game demo of the DIV Studio, now into your Dreamcast! It's not as good as Street Fighter, and unfortunately it has some serious bugs (also happens in other BennuGD platforms due to Bennu conversion) but still, an interesting demo!!
