Over the last years we got several requests for this game so we decided to make one last batch, this time the game comes in an original "Lynx style" cardboard box case, a printed full color 24 page manual and of course the game cartridge with a glossy color label and a small plastic case.
The game is using a 512 KB (4 Mbit) eprom, hiscores are saved on the cartridge.
As some of the parts have a minimum amount of quantity to order we are collecting preorders within the next weeks, if we don´t meet the minimum necessary for the production run we won´t start the production. We expect delivery of the game in May, no upfront payment is required.
The new game cartridge does not fit in a Lynx 1, it might be possible to fit it in if you remove the cartridge door but we have not tested this.
The game does not work well with a LCD replacement mod as it is using a couple of techniques to increase the color palette, this will result in bad flickering on modern displays.
The plastic case is produced with a process called "laser sintering". The surface is a little bit rougher than the original plastic cartridges.
To support the release of Sturmwind, here is a new trailer.
Please help us spread the word !
New Sturmwind Merchandise - Boss „Krakor” available as plush toy!
Apr 05, 2012 11:10am
The rescue of the world starts on April 24th 2013 with Sturmwind for Sega Dreamcast. The pilots will even come closer to the enemies than they are looking for.
There will be literally physical contact with „Krakor”, who will be available as plush toy at Sturmwinds street date. This very octopus, which is already well-known from the cover artwork of Sturmwind, has found the undersea graveyard of the Titan‘s fleet. The greenish glow of some his new hideouts attacted all kinds of prey and the jellyfish seem to glow larger. Due to his constant headache, he didn‘t notice he too had doubled in size and weight.
But don‘t be afraid! Even though this plushy fellow is quite huge, it‘s everything but contaminated. redspotgames focused on high quality. Comes with CE marking (or formerly EC mark) and you can wash him at 30°C / 86 F. 40 cm from the tips of the tentacles to the head, which has a diameter of 45 cm.
This merchandise is limited and only available for a short time for only 25,- EUR in the redspotgames online shop. Furthermore videogame reseller Play-Asia.com offers a small amount of the Limited Edition „Windstärke 12” together with the Krakor plush toy [Link]. Customers who pre-ordered Sturmwind can extend their order with the plush toy with help of the redspotgames customer support [Link].
We are under attack: Sturmwind pilots, fall in for saving the world in April 2013!

Sturmwind pilots, your all-dominant mission will begin on April 24th 2013. All documents will be sent to you until this very date.

Your wings of steel are now our last resort.
Stay ready for further instructions. Over and out.
New screenshot package is online. As you can see the HUD has changed compared to the alpha version, weapons moved to the top right, energy bar is gone. There are also a couple of levels with a top down perspective.
So here we go. That's it, the final cover art. "Heeeeyy, but I bought the CD with the octopus!" I hear some of you scream ;) No problem, just flip the booklet and surprise..., there it is. We call that "Dualcover". A very neat little feature I think. Just use the cover you like better. It's your choice ;)
Of course there will be a couple of logos placed on the pictures like Redspotgames, Duranik ... etc. .
