Dreams can come true, after all.
By Robert Marrujo:: Sega's little system that... well, almost could remains one of the most iconic and beloved consoles ever made. Dreamcast launched in 1999 right prior to the drop of consoles like PlayStation 2. Sadly, the system couldn't quite cut it and keep pace with the more powerful competition, so Sega had no choice but to become a third-party software publisher and exit the console-making business.
Still, despite falling short in terms of sales, Dreamcast nonetheless left quite a legacy in its wake. In celebration of the system, the team at Read-Only Memories is hoping to add another book to its catalogue with Sega Dreamcast: Collected Works. The title is on Kickstarter right now and has already blown past its funding goal. As of this writing the project is sitting at $111,870 of its $91,922 target.
Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works was a lovely book of its own, which gives us hope that this new title will be just as endearing. Here's some of what the team has to say about Sega Dreamcast: Collected Works:
"SEGA Dreamcast: Collected Works is the definitive history of the cult games console, produced in collaboration with SEGA. This large format, deluxe hardback will feature a dazzling collection of never-before-published materials and specially commissioned editorial, offering unprecedented insight into the creation of the Dreamcast console and its celebrated library of games."
For the full slate of details about the book, head over to its Kickstarter page. Sega Dreamcast: Collected Works has an anticipated release of some time in November of 2018.
