Referred to as Zauver here http://web.archive.org/web/19970215192227/http://www.gamefan.com/download/playstation/zauver/index.html
Great! Those images are really different from the final version :O
More reference to Zauber
Here’s another tiny screenshot of Zauver/Zauber from GameFan Oct. 1996:
In an interview with gaming.moe, Kenichi Iwao mentions that Zauber was a different game from Einhänder
(about halfway down the page)
“Can you tell us a bit about your experiences at Square?
The first published game I worked on was Einhander, but I actually did work on another shooting game before that which was cancelled. The development team was reshuffled a bit and the concepts were reworked, and that’s eventually what lead to Einhander.
Oh, that’s very interesting! Do you recall the name of this game, by any chance?
The game was never announced, but the working title was “Zauber.” Though, maybe it was in a Japanese magazine at some point…
How was it different from Einhander?
Completely different. It wasn’t a very good game… in terms of scale, if Einhander was a planet, this was like a tiny moon orbiting it.”
