Little Dream is a cancelled RPG that was in development by Panther Software (the same team behind the Space Griffon DC remake) in 1998 / 1999 for the Dreamcast. From what we can speculate looking at the few screenshots preserved in the gallery below (found by Celine in Console Plus magazine #86), the game was going to play somehow like a traditional (turn based?) RPG, set in a fantasy / crazy world (almost like Alice in Wonderland). There were even a Pig King and police-pigs to battle against! Isnt that awesome?
We dont know why the game was never released and the only images available seem to be target renders more than the real game, so it’s possible that Little Dream was cancelled in early development.
Thanks to Celine for the contribution!
Wow, fantastic find. First i’ve ever heard about this game.
They have a page about this at IGN (dreamcast.ign.com/objects/013/013509.html) but i dont think we ever seen the screens online before (well, maybe they were on some old, obscure japanese website).
Little Dream of Blue Steel ?
@Celine: so it seems, from an old news about the game, found at http://www.futuregamez.net/news/news9811.html
NOVEMBER 6, 1998
The Sega Otaku web site is reporting 2 new Dreamcast games in development and due for release in 1999. This is an excerpt from their site about the games :
The first title, Cavalryman (Tentative Name), is described as a realtime action shooting game. The second title, Little Dream of Blue Steel, is described as a 3D action/adventure game.
It seems strange to me since their other DC game full name is Blue Steel Variable Formula – Space Griffon.
So maybe the site got the titles of their 2 games mixed up.. i’ll change the article, thanks Celine! :)
