Sega’s been teasing us for some time now with a letter-by-letter unveiling of a new title. It’s time for all the cryptic messages, vague guesses and blurry pictures to come to an end, as Sega has finally revealed their flashy new electric-green arcade cabinet as Dream Raiders, a sit-down FPS with a motion seat, real-time wind effects, and an Inception-inspired mechanic being referred to as “Dream State” gameplay.
Gameplay specifics are scarce as of yet, but the vividly colorful and wildly varying screenshots that Sega has released display a multitude of distinct scenarios, including a space station, a crocodile infested river, and a snowy hillside. I can only imagine these are related to the dream-jumping theme, further proving that Inception would have been a hell of a lot more interesting if it just stopped trying to take itself so damn seriously.
Sega has also started up a new Facebook page for Dream Raiders, and are promising a video of the game when they get 100 “Likes.” They’re at 28 as of this writing, so get over there and like it already!
Hit the jump to see a handful of very cool screenshots, and read Sega’s description of the game.
