Omega Boost (Red Plasma) [PSX – Target Render]

Red Plasma was a shooting game with robots that was in development by Sony Computer Entertainment for the original Playstation. A single screenshot, probably from a target render or a tech demo, was found by Celine on Console Plus magazine #34.

Lost Level’s user Deadguy2322 has identified how the mech design is very akin to Polyphony Digital’s Omega Boost released on Playstation four years after that initial target render was shown.

Bounty Hunter [Genesis / Mega Drive – Cancelled?]

Bounty Hunter is a cancelled (?) beat ’em up that was in development for the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive. In the game you would have take the role of Garrot, a bounty hunter in the year 2397. You had to travel to four different fantasy realms to neutralize the evil dwellers beating them up using your own fists and feet through Sega’s Activator. In fact Bounty Hunter was planned to be packed with the quirky Sega’s device but in the end it doesn’t seem to ever be released.

The Strangers [Sega CD – Cancelled]

The Strangers was going to be a one to one fighting game based on characters from Malibu comic books ( plus three new characters made specifically for this game). On EGM issue 59 there is a small preview of the game in a very early state. The Strangers probably was never released because the developer, Malibu Interactive, closed down around 1994 ( the preview is from mid 1994 ).
