Go 'GaGa' for Sega!

An anime business simulation for the Dreamcast. Only the Japanese would do it.

Have you ever felt upset that your Dreamcast doesn't test your business acumen? Distressed that your superb stock trading abilities are not being put to good use, or disturbed by the machine's inability to display even the most basic sales data? You haven't? There's a surprise - right, well sir, you're in the majority, because although we haven't the faintest idea why they are doing it, Sega have just announced a new Dreamcast title, a game which puts you in control of two "Segagaga" employees, Taro Sega and Yayoi Haneda, whose job it is to take the company to the top in only three short years, staving off competition from the sinister DOGMA corporation. The things we know so far are that the game is being done in a beautiful hand-drawn anime style using both RPG and simulation elements. Sequences shown to IGN demonstrate parts of the game where Taro and Yayoi have to enter the Segagaga Central Supercomputer and interact with various people in the company. The Japanese do tend to go for gimmicks like this, so don't be surprised if it proves very popular over there, but the chances of the West ever seeing it are rather slim, and even if we do, the thought of it progressing beyond cult status is somewhat optimistic. Ah well, feast your eyes on IGN's impressive collection of screenshots and decide whether you want to pursue it.
