Viper: Red Sector is a cancelled sci-fi shooter that was in development by New World Computing for the original Playstation. The game was based around aerial combats with a squadron of robot fighter planes and the player had to eliminate a race of irate synthetic humanoids through more than 40 levels. The missions were set in open areas, so that you would have been able to freely explore the world to reach the different objectives. We dont know how much it was completed before 3DO purchased New World and decided to cancel the project.
In 1998 Ocean released another flying shooter for the PSX named Viper, but it should not be related to Red Sector as it was developed by X-ample.
An image probably taken from a Viper: Red Sector’s FMV was found in EGM #84
