Toy Commander, known in Japan as Totsugeki! Teketeke!! Toy Ranger (突撃!てけてけ!!トイ・レンジャー), is a Sega Dreamcast game developed by No Cliché in 1999. During development the game was known as Gutherman[15][16].

Story

After the player (called Andy in the US and Guthy in Europe) receives some new army-themed toys for Christmas, his older toys, lead by Huggy Bear, rebel against the new arrivals. The overall goal is to stop Huggy Bear and his various generals and reclaim the house. By defeating a general, the toy can then be used against the final boss.

History

It was a launch title in both North America and Europe, and was used extensively to advertise the Dreamcast's 3D rendering capabilities. In the game, the player controls a variety of toys, ranging from cars to planes and helicopters, and must complete various tasks in a 3D environment.

No Cliché developed Christmas and Summer time hoilday spin-offs for the Official Dreamcast Magazine. They also released a sequel, Toy Racer, a racing game with online capabilities which did not see the same level of success. The team had wanted to include online multiplayer with Toy Commander but ran out of time[17].
