==The indie & homebrew game list==
+
Let's face it, the dreamcast is an awesome system, and therefore, awesome games! Another awesome feature was that for a small amount of time, the dreamcast didn't have to be moded to play burnt games on your console. So here is a list of awesome homebrew and comps to show you what people have been up to.
   
As hackers figured how to boot the Dreamcast from regular CDs without any hardware modding, it became, by all practical means, the most open console ever. That is, until ''intentionally'' open consoles came out, such as the Linux-based [[Caanoo]] and many [[Android]]-based portables, but I digress. Retaining a devoted fanbase even after it was commercially discontinued, it was the platform of choice for many independent developers. Thus it received several original titles, as well as ports and emulators.

Even though the system has been dead for 15+ years, don't forget to check the [[Upcoming Games#Dreamcast|Upcoming games page]]

!Alice's Mom's Rescue
 
|Platformer
 
|Cute retro puzzle platformer, vaguely inspired by "Alice in Wonderland". A little girl has to traverse huge maze-ish levels and rescue her mommy from the giant raven. Magical mushrooms allow her to <s>trip balls</s> change size to reach different areas.

!Beats of Rage

|Clone-sorta-ish of the Streets of Rage series, done with KOF sprites. As the engine is open and very easy to mess, several modded versions exist. To save on CD-Rs, look for the "Beats of Rage Collection" packs. Also on several other platforms.

!Last Hope: Pink Bullets
 
|Shooter
 
|Even though ''Last Hope'' got some praise as a fine-looking and very challenging game in the same vein as ''Pulstar'', it was also criticized as too brutally difficult and somewhat glitchy; this updated version corrects the original release's issues.

!Wind and Water Puzzle Battles
 
|Puzzle
 
|One of the many "post-mortem" commercially released indie games, the aim of this puzzler is to match elemental squares into matching diamond shapes in a manner somewhat reminiscent of Tetris Attack / Panel de Pon / Puzzle League games (fuck me does that series have a lot of names). As those games are in their own right - Wind and Water Puzzle Battles is ridiculously addictive and graphically attractive considering it's a port from the GP32 of all things.
 
Don't let the cover throw you off, this isn't a Jap-only game, it has full English as well and is region free.

As many Dreamcast games were much smaller than a CD's capacity, pirates have figured out how to make multi-game compilations. Where to get them? Hint, hint: RetroZone.co, Segahub, CoolROM, DopeRoms, Rom Hustler.

!Bleemcast!
 
|PlayStation
 
|Bleem!, the famed commercial PlayStation emulator for PC, came to the Dreamcast in three game-specific releases: Gran Turismo 2, Metal Gear Solid, and Tekken 3. It provided that serious visual upgrade (640x480, anti-aliasing, bilinear filtering) that the PS2 ''should'' but did not. There is also a non-title-specific leaked beta, but it was an early version, very buggy and incomplete, with spotty compatibility.[http://www.whipassgaming.com/genesisreviews/Bleemcast/bleemcastcompatibility.htm]
