Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

In the new year, DreamCasters' Duel will be transitioning from a mod to an indie game. I'm sorry to disappoint those of you who were looking forward to playing DreamCasters' Duel as a Unreal Tournament 2004 mod, but the current non-business model of doing everything myself and releasing it for free1 has become entirely unsustainable. Actually, it has been for some time now.

And so I have given up my job as an ESL teacher and I am actively pursuing my dream of becoming a professional video game developer.

To kick-start things off, I've launched the DreamCasters' Duel funding project off at kickstarter.com. Current incentives for funding are;

  • $1 - a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Manga
  • $3 - a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Manga (available in March) and a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Soundtrack including a previously unreleased track
  • $5 - a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Manga (available in March), a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Soundtrack including a previously unreleased track, and a copy of the DCD ashcan Manga delivered to your door!
  • $7 - a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Manga (available in March) , a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Soundtrack including a previously unreleased track, and a copy of the DCD ashcan Manga (available in April-May) delivered to your door! Additionally, the ashcan copy is signed.
  • $10 - a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Manga (available in March) , a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Soundtrack including a previously unreleased track, and a copy of the DCD ashcan Manga (available in April-May) delivered to your door! Additionally, the ashcan copy is signed. If you are among the first 50 people to pledge at this level or higher you will also receive a CD of Tripwire - The Blue Distro from which the DreamCasters' Duel tracks derive as well as a Tripwire sticker!
  • $20 - a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Manga (available in March) , a digital copy of the DreamCasters' Duel Soundtrack including a previously unreleased track, and a copy of the DCD ashcan Manga (available in April-May) delivered to your door! Additionally, the ashcan copy is signed. If you are among the first 50 people to pledge at this level or higher you will also receive a CD of Tripwire - The Blue Distro from which the DreamCasters' Duel tracks derive as well as a Tripwire sticker! As if all that wasn't enough, you will receive a digital copy of DreamCasters' Duel PC version!

New media and funding incentives will be updated weekly, so check the DreamCasters' Duel funding project regularly for updates.

Here is a preview of some WIP pages from the DreamCasters' Manga:


This is a scary time for me having given up my job to pursue my dream of making DreamCasters' Duel a reality after 8 long years. You can help make the DreamCasters' Duel a reality by spreading the word on your Tweeters and Youtubes, Facebooking and the whatnot. Thank you for you continuing support!!!

1. Not to ruin the surprise, but I still intend to give away plenty of copies of the game for free to some of those who've supported DCD over the years
