I am sure there are a few Sega fans following us here, so this one is for you! Duck Marines is a free software remake of the ChuChu Rocket party game. Sadly I didn't have a Sega Dreamcast for very long, so it is not a title I am too familiar with.

Seems like a fun bit of news to share this Saturday evening!

Duck Marines (working title) is a cross-platform free software remake of Sonic Team’s ChuChu Rocket for the Sega Dreamcast.

ChuChu Rocket is an amazing party game but few people own a Dreamcast these days. With Duck Marines we will try to recreate the magic of the original game’s multiplayer on the PC.

Duck Marines will feature entirely new assets (sprites, music etc.) and gameplay changes that we find appropriate, while still staying true to the original.

Amazing - Chu Chu Rocket is still one of my favourite Dreamcast games, especially (but not only) when playing in Multiplayer. I'll definitely check this one out!

There is also Mures which seems to have the same intent and has been around for a while. This new remake looks graphically more impressive, though, and it looks like Mures is abandoned at this point AFAICT.
