Canceled 3DO game; anyone have more information on it? Has it ever been leaked out to the public? Apparently some of the game content was ported over to the PC game Star Trek: A Final Unity?

I used to have the concept art for this game. Eh Devin? ;)

Doesn't seem like much of anything came of that art. It was all going to be scanned and put up for everyone. Guess we got the short end of the stick on that one.

Who.. me? :roll:

It's in safe hands. I tried using my regular scanner but it yielded horrible results with a nasty gash down the middle of the scanners track. Then I pulled out an old Mustek which works fantastically. I've scanned some of the boring stuff and now progressing to the more interesting Alien designs. It's taking so long because this is such an exhaustive process. First I take a high resolution scan for archival purposes, then a low res scan which can be manipulated for you to look at on the web. Not the fastest scanner and we're talking about 15 minutes to reproduce a single piece of the concept artwork. So little by little it's getting done!

I have some more info on this old game. I was following it closely back in the day as I am a trek fan. I got all of the other Spectrum Holobyte TNG games and wanted this one pretty badly.


The leftmost image is from an issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly that I have. Early 1994. That is the most coverage that I'm aware of. The other two images are from an issue of Gamepro again from 1994. The two page ad is about the SNES game but does mention the 3DO version.

I remember that I had a pamphlet direct from Spectrum Holobyte at one time, about the PC, SNES and 3DO games. But that is long gone. :)

What's interesting is that the PC game has some pre-rendered cutscenes that look very similar to those of the 3DO game in these shots. So they were probably sharing assets between projects. From what I've been able to find elsewhere on the web, the progress on the game was very limited before it was canceled.

Cool. Thanks for the link. The description of the game is interesting. It's too bad they didn't try to make it happen.
