Redream: a Dreamcast emulator with Linux support


If you are a lover of the old Dreamcast game console you are going to love this news. Since there is a group of developers in charge of developing Network, an emulator for the Dreamcast that is compatible with the main platforms, that is, Windows, Mac and Linux. With it you will be able to resurrect the best video games of the Dreamcast in high definition on your computer, something that many gamers in love with classic video games and this type of retro machines will surely like.

If you would like to Know more about this project, you can visit the official website. There you will find a lot of information about it, such as compatibility, guides to start using it, changelog to keep up to date with all the news and changes, and of course a download area. If you access that area you will see two possibilities, a free one called Lite that is compatible with 80% of Dreamcast libraries, but lacks support for high definition rendering. On the other hand, if you want to play with HD you must choose the Premium version that costs only $ 5. With Redream you can have a good Dreamcast emulator that supports a fairly impressive list of titles that you can run. If you want to see the list of compatible video games you will be able to look this link, but from LxA we already inform you that there are more than 500 games and only 97 of the list are now without support (Broken). Also, as the developer Anthony Pesch himself has indicated, with Redream you will not find a Dreamcast emulator like other existing alternatives ...

One of the main differences that stand out is that the emulator is user-friendly, optimized and available to run whatever you want. It is also multiplatform as we mentioned at the beginning, and has interesting features like the HLE BIOS, automatic driver configuration, easy graphical interface, and that important video game database in constant expansion so you don't get bored.

    As an alternative there is also the Reicast core in Retroarch, which they have been giving a lot of lately and improving quickly.
