Director's Cut[edit]

The HUCAST website links to a Twitter account under the name "Fresh Dux" which tweets that Dux 1.5 has been in development since July 2011.[4]


In May 2012, a Kickstarter project for a remake of the game was announced.[5] It was called Redux: Dark Matters and scheduled for a release on PSN, XBLA, Steam and iOS, as well as the Dreamcast. The latter version was originally available only as a Kickstarter reward[6] but Redux 1.1 was later sold separately.[7] The project reached its funding goal of $25,000 on 14 May 2012, after only a few days.[8] The Dreamcast version was released on January 27, 2014.[9]


Art assets from the Dux series were used in NG.Dev.Team shm'up Razion.
