    Un’altra vittima della prematura morte del Jaguar.
    Svuluppato dalla High VOltage Software, Dactyl Joust era un gioco dove si potevano utilizzare creature volanti in un mondo 3D sorprendentemente dettagliato.
    Mancavano circa 6 mesi al lancio quando il titolo venne cancellato. Pare che esistano alcune beta ma per ora non sono state rilasciate.

      Grazie come sempre per le info Federico :) Appena ho tempo farò tutte le descrizioni della sezione Jaguar in inglese. Immagino che questo Dactyl sia stato un seguito spirituale del vecchio Joust, serie che ha avuto parecchia sfiga nelle versione in 3D, ne stavano svilippando un’altro per Xbox / PS2, ma ovviamente è stato cancellato.

    Again, you now have the internal documents from Atari regarding this, but in advance…

    Atari made clear the original coder got in over his head, HVS were unable to implement the line of sight combat they wanted, nor put coder on project Atari wanted as he was busy with Jaguar NBA Jam, they promised more texture mapping and Atari were wondering if game could be salvaged or simply needed a total rewrite…

    Can posters please stick to making credible claims…

    Posts saying they know someone from somewhere who played the game,benefit no one let alone advance what is known on the game.

    If you have a source from the development team who can add further information on its status, but doesn’t want to be quoted or named..then sadly it can’t be used..

    But at least put him or her in touch with Indeed 64 to see if anything can be used to further the article.

    Just to clear up what Songbird were given..regarding this title…

    This from Carl..posted on Atari Age back in October 2003:

    Special thanks to Eric Nofsinger of High Voltage Software, who made the big trek to Vegas for JagFest @ CGE and gave me this clip (and a few others ) at the show. Note that this is the REAL game running on a REAL Jaguar. Very cool, and a shame it was never released..

    So he was given VIDEO FOOTAGE.
