Alien Front Online Is Finally Back Online
If you’ve ever wanted to join up with your friends to take command of an alien tank battalion and blow up Tokyo, today is your lucky day – but you’ll need to dust off your Dreamcast to do it.
Sega’s Alien Front Online was a bit of a revelation back in 2001, with voice chat using the Dreamcast microphone and online deathmatches for up to eight players. However, the game was switched off in 2003 in the great North American Dreamcast server massacre.
Now it’s back online thanks to the efforts of dedicated fans Petter3k and Shuouma. If you want to play it, check out that link – just be aware that the server’s in beta and you’ll need a special Raspberry Pi kit to access it.
