Founder of Unseen64 in 2001, i'd like to sleep more than 5 hours a day, but i have to pay the bills.

    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…

    I know someone who actually played the game at HVS, but becuase i want to protect his privacy i won’t say his name.

    There’s this somewhat unknown magazine that not only had a release date for this game (IIRC) but aslo for MANY other games planned for the system. If i can find it, i’ll post it here…
