Based in Dordrecht, Netherlands
Founded in 2003, Senile Team are an independent video games developer based in Dordrecht, Netherlands.
Those who have played the internationally renowned Beats of Rage (2003) or Rush Rush Rally Racing (2009) will already be aware of the quality gaming experiences that developer Senile Team is known for.
Their first release, Beats of Rage, is arguably one of the most popular independent beat ’em up game engines of all time, now available on over a dozen platforms, with millions of known downloads and hundreds of community-developed mods.
If Sonic the Hedgehog, Castlevania, and Streets of Rage had a baby, it would surely be Intrepid Izzy. Join our hero as she kicks, punches, and slices her way through a colourful, detailed world full of ninjas, sentient fruit, talking animals, vampires, magic, and so much more.
WAVE Game Studios have partnered with Senile Team to release physical copies of this enchanting Dreamcast platformer, after a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign and the overwhelmingly positive reception to the PC version released last year via Steam.
On August 20, 2021 WAVE Game Studios released and distributed the Dreamcast version to dozens of retail stores around the world; the first time this has happened for a new Dreamcast release in almost 20 years.
The initial print run of 750 units sold out almost immediately, prompting a reprint just 28 days after release. The fastest known for an independently released Dreamcast title.
In response to considerable demand for both the game and the music featured therein, WAVE announced that a limited run two-disc Special Edition will be released on November 20, 2021. This version includes an audio CD with the full official soundtrack, and is available in European, North American, and Japanese cover art variants.
