Dolmexica 2D modable fighter engine beta released

If you are like me, then you love fighting games on the Dreamcast. Many times I would look at what the Xbox and PC can do regarding the many Mugen mods found on both systems, and would wish that we had something like that on Dreamcast.

While we do have BOR mods, those are more or less made for Beat em' up's, with a few good exceptions here and there.

Well, a good friend of mine, Captain Dreamcast, from Dreamcast-Talk forums, felt the same way, and was determined to do something about it! At the end of last year he started work on his Dolmexica engine, which aims to be better than Mugen, and is fully open source, so other modders can add on to the engine if they please.

After many months of hard work, he decided to release a beta for us on the 5th of August 2011. There are only 2 playable characters right now, Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter II from the Snes.

This has the potential to really become something great, and from what has been shown so far, I think this will blow Mugen out of the water when it is released.

When all is said and done, we will be getting a little game called Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat! I don't know about you, but that sounds like the coolest mashup ever!

If you want to follow the progress check his thread here!

  1. Whow, I hope this goes the distance, specially if it is supposed to be better than mugen. I am a big fan of 2d fighting games, this would my dreamcast a new life. Specially if a collection with SNK characters is released!
