The Harmony Engineering website mentions Dinonauts, an educational game that was released for Mac and Windows. I'm assuming it has nothing to do with Virgin's Dinoblaze or Panasonic's Theo the Dinosaur.

Fire Wolves (Firewolves) was shown at E3 1995. It was described "as a first-person Zelda".

It was hidden in there:

This version was pretty slow, but if you like the idea of a first-person adventure, as opposed to just run around a shoot everything, keep your eye out for this one - it should be out around the end of the summer.

Ah, gotcha ... thanks. Would have been an interesting game at the very least I'm sure.

Wow Rock N Roll racing had a planned 3DO port? That would have been awesome! I loved that game on the SNES.

I am almost sad I read that list! I could just imagine how awesome the 3DO version would have been with the actual songs being played instead of a 16-bit rendition. I hope a beta of that is discovered on day, but that is probably wishful thinking.

I don't believe ISOs exist for the unreleased games except for Powerslide and some Olympic games.

I thought I might find this one on here, seeing as how it's another ALG light gun arcade game. For those who didn't know, Fast Draw Showdown finally got a home port for Wiiware. I tried out the demo and can't say I'm too impressed. The gameplay comes in such brief spurts that the game seems to have been designed for people with two-second attention spans. Not a big loss for the 3DO.

This was coming to 3DO? Most interesting. Though I'm guessing it would have been a Japan-only release like all the other console ports of the game.
pitsunami wrote:||Maximum Surge |Digital Pictures |
Having seen footage that would have been used for this game in the film Game Over, I have to say this one looks like it would have been very nice on the 3DO. It offers more of a variety of gameplay than Digital Pictures's other games, and it looks like a fairly generous budget went into the video footage. Hopefully one day the homebrew community will rescue this one from the dumpster.

Return to Zork was released with Saturn rocket and Play Station in Japan.
However, only the 3DO version was not released.

I remember that I grieved very much in those days :cry:
Because I make a note using translation software, I think that it becomes a poor English sentence.
I'm sorry.

If there is rude expression, please point it out.
Thanking you in advance.

My brother and I were pretty impressed with Return to Zork when it came out. Did you at least get to play it on PC?

Are we just wanting Western unreleased titles? If not, there were a whole bunch in the last few issues of the Japanese 3DO Club magazines, including a hotel management game (off the top of my head, I forget the title, but an actual demo is playable on the last disc), Frankenstein: Through the Eyes of the Monster, etc. According to a Capcom rep, Rockman X3 was released, but have yet to lay my hands on one. Also, lets not forget the ambitious Worldbuilders.

Check out the screenshots on the original sampler discs, or some of the CES material, it was very ambitious, but not really a console game.

Hello Mate,

I thought World builders morphed into Shockwave? Or did they just share FMV?

I've found a handful of games that were on gamelists that appear to be unreleased. Please correct me if these were actually released, otherwise might as well add these to the list:

Air Warrior
Dennis Miller: It's Geek to Me
Intelliplay's Football series (Quarterback, Linemen, Receiver, Defensive Backfield)
Naoko to Hide Bou: Kanji no Tensai
Naoko to Hide Bou: Sansuu no Tensai 2

There's box shots of the last two on GameFAQs, but I don't think the others were released.
