TITAN IDE Have you ever dreamed of making a Dreamcast game? If you are reading this probably the answer is yes. Just like you, Iíve always had this dream, but where do I start?

There are many questions and unfortunately the answers are hidden over the internet in obscure forums and sometimes in posts with more than 10 or even 15 years. As soon as you find the answers then it starts the real disaster, it all boils down to a bunch of scripts that you need to run on linux and nothing is visual.

After a long time insisting, when I finally got something running on the Dreamcast I realized that the whole process was very manual so I started to build small tools to make my life easier. Until I decided to put everything together and then was born the Titan IDE.

But what is Titan IDE and what does it do?

Titan IDE is nothing more than a tool for editing levels, drawing graphics for VMU and making spritesheets for Dreamcast.

Okay. But what about the code?

This interface called Titan IDE was made to work together with 2D game templates that come with the tool.

What is possible to do with Titan IDE?

With the Titan IDE, itís possible to create 2D platform adventure games like Mario and Sonic or action like Mega Man and Metroid. It is also possible to create vertical and horizontal ShumUp and RPG.

Will it be possible to make games of other styles in the future? Does the engine use the potential of the Dreamcast?

This is only the version 0.9 of the tool, new updates will come every month, new templates will be added. Itís still far from using the full potential of the console, but the goal is always to get more of Dreamcast with each new update.

So enough of talking weíll learn how to install the Titan IDE and compile your first game for the Sega Dreamcast.
