The og dreamcaster squad from the original dream-themed mod is back, picking up right where they left off!

Posted by on

It’s the return of the original duo of schoolgirl and kick-ass teddy bear sidekick. The og dreamcaster squad from the original dream-themed mod is back, picking up right where they left off!


If you'd like a wallpaper in a different resolution or color scheme, don't hesitate to pm me.

Also included in this press release are the weapons of DCD. As most of the action is hand-to-hand and/or “telekinetic”, weapons are of little concern. The guns themselves will only be wielded by summoned and secondary (un-lockable) characters.


Do to the necessity of multiple render passes per frame, cel-shading is a memory intensive process. In order to conserve system resources, the weapons are low-poly (under 800 triangles for the guns!) and all of the weapons pictured share a single 64x64 texture map.


ACTUAL SIZE! (lol)

I’ve gotten some questions regarding where DCD is at. Ppl wondering if I, the game, or both, are dead. To demonstrate the level of personal commitment to this game, I’m releasing the DCD art assets catalog. It documents the insane amount of work I’ve single-handedly accomplished (14 character models, 282 static meshes, 350 textures, and over 300 animations) and what little left there is to do. Output has slowed up a bit and will continue to be slow as I am currently working on the DCD narrative in parallel with the game. I’ll reveal exactly what that means shortly.

To those who haven’t given up faith, I salute you.

I don't really see what changed. Aren't you building this mod for five years now? Hope you'll make it to a release someday!

Wow, that's pretty innovative and cool. Her face is a little odd (color), but, as someone who normally really is not into cel-shaded, I think this looks really cool. :)

Thnx, glad you like it! re:face color, yeah, I could kinda tell her face was off, but I'm color blind so sometimes I have difficulty...

You're color blind? Wow, wouldn't know it from any of your work. Amazing job you've done!

Thnx, I'm red/green color blind, so I try to avoid those colors when I can but sometimes things still go wrong. Anyways, I think my next news post will feature wallpapers of Katia and Candice which I consider to have gone "right." :)
