Rollcage (Team 17) [PSX SAT 3DO – Cancelled]

Rollcage is a cancelled racing game that was in development by Team 17 for the original Playstation, Saturn and 3DO. Even if the title is the same, this game is not the same Rollcage (a futuristic racer) developed by Attention To Detail and published by Psygnosis in 1999. Team 17’s Rollcage was a more traditional racing game, with “realistic” cars and tracks from the real world. There are no more info available on this project, but Celine was able to find some screenshots in CD Consoles magazine issue #7. Rollcage was never released on any platform, for unknown reasons.

Unclejun found a video from ECTS ’95 on a cover disc from Génération 4 issue #78 showcasing the game, it was supposed to be the first Daytona USA-like racing game on the PC, featuring a mix of stuntcar and stockcar gameplay and capable of 60fps on a Pentium.

    NIce find!

    They’ve got to be target renders. Poor target renders at that. Look how clean the number plate text is in the 3rd picture. Saturn couldn’t do this. Also look at how straight the textures are. The PlayStation couldn’t do that. So that leaves the 3DO but I doubt that could draw textures that clean either.

    This game is pictured in the Amiga box version of Speris Legacy (by Team17), i recall the pictures but i am unsure what the name was, anyway the game was meant to be released for Amiga 1200 aswell as PSX/PC.

    i can provide scans and so on if that is of interest as i still have the game (along with 1800 more)

    ugh, its early here.

    i meant, Rollcage by Team17 was teased in the game manual/box Speris Legacy.

    Psst: there was another one too, i’ll dig up the info if anyone is interested (email me)

    According to Team 17 themselves, this appeared to be PC Only at 1 point and they’ve said it was’nt a great original loss to see it canned, as it was basically a Sega Rally clone and not a very good one at that.

    As for Jaguar/3DO’s abilties to pull off decent renditions of a Sega Rally Clone?.

    Personally i don’t think either really had the ‘horse power’ to do it, games of this ilk more suited to Pentium PC/Saturn and PSone.
