Thanks to Srđan we found out that Melt was the same project as Ed Hunter:

There was a sticker on the Maiden compilation Best of the Beast where it said ”Introducing Melt- Eddie’s own state-of-the-art 3D game!” and there was the picture which said Playstation and MELT. Using WayBackMachine I was looking at the old Iron Maiden site, circa ’98-’99 and it says that the game Melt has changed name to Ed Hunter. So there you go. Also , according to the description, the game was changed too, from the gameplay to the style.

Thanks to Pachuka and Srđan for the contribution!
