Global Kumite [GBC – Cancelled]

Global Kumite was a one-on-one fighting game developed for the Game Boy Color by the Netherlands-based Karma Studios.

Eight fighters would have been available – some were equipped with a weapon, such as the sword-wielding white ninja. Others included a blue Incredible Hulk lookalike, a 1970s afroed kung-fu expert and a martial artist with more than a passing resemblance to Ryu from Capcom’s Street Figher series. Other characters could be unlocked, along with additional stages to go alongside the inital eight and extra game modes. The developer never specified whether the game would allow more than one player.

Despite the touted release date of February 2000, like many of Karma Studios’ games Global Kumite never saw the light of day.

South Park [GBC – Cancelled]

A South Park videogame was planned for the GameBoy Color and was in development at Acclaim studios in 1998, but sadly the project was soon cancelled by the shows creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone due to them feeling that the game isn’t right for the Game Boy Color as children were the main demographic for the system. There are not many info on this game and only a single screenshot was published in an old Nintendo Power magazine (issue 114). The prototype cartridge now belongs to Trey and Matt, commemorating the very first South Park game ever created.

It seems that after the South Park game was cancelled Acclaim didn’t want all their investment in the project to go to waste so it was changed to Maya the Bee and published in Europe. After a little more tweaking it also became the New Adventures of Mary Kate & Ashley and published in the US. If you check videos of these 2 games, you can see that the HUD is basically the same, the platforms and the ladders are similar

If you worked on this game and have some more info or screens on the project, please let us know!

Project Infinity [GBC – Cancelled]

projectinfinitylogo.jpg

“The time spent searching for publishers closed our near shut window of opportunity for getting Infinity published. It seems very clear now that Infinity will not be published for GBC.

Even after all this time, we still get emails from people wondering what happened to the company or if Infinity will ever be released. Here’s the answer: the team has been disbanded since 2002, and there is a slim possibility that Infinity may one day be released as a ROM file for free on the website. A ROM file would allow the game to be played in emulators or be burned to your own cartridge.

The website continues to exist because our web hosting is essentially free. But make no mistake, Affinix as a game company is not operational. There is no planned date for release of a ROM. Infinity is completely obsolete by today’s standards and we have no plans to sell it, so there is very little incentive to work on the project. Who knows, though, maybe we’ll eventually finish the darn thing.” [Source: www.affinix.com]
