Sqrxz works on Dreamcast!

Indiket, famous for many game ports to the Dreamcast, recieved a snapshot of v0.8.5 and has it running on the real thing! Now if that aren’t great news? ;)

Sqrxz – Status!

Sqrxzs is a action, puzzle Jump’N'Run, where you need pretty fast reflexes and a clever mind. We are heavily working on the game and it’s developing quite well. The game itself is a remake. Prepare for the possibly hardest Jump’N'Run puzzler you have ever played! If you can’t handle this game, you better go and play golf :)

We will be releasing for most major systems such as GP2x, Wiz, GP32, Dreamcast, Dingoo Linux (Dingux), Windows, Wii, PSP and possibly other systems. As we do have permission from the copyright holder and creator, we shouldn’t be running into any problems releasing for the systems mentioned above.
