Dreamcast Magazine Issue 9

It's that time again folks - time to take a trip into the distant past and dive into another issue of Dreamcast Magazine! Don't worry though - there's no need to fire up the DeLorean as we've done the hard work for you. Dreamcast Magazine issue 9 hit shop shelves on 18th May 2000 and features 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker on the cover. Previews include Nightmare Creatures 2, Half-Life, Spirit of Speed 1937 (ugh) and a little game from Quantic Dream called Quark.
There are few concrete details to be found about Quark, but it looks as if it was going to be a 3D platformer set across two distinct environments - one a fantasy world with elves and monsters; the other a sort of steampunk version of Victorian London. Another unreleased title, Black & White from Lionhead Studios is given a fairly lengthy preview too, and the first part of Dreamcast Magazine's Black & White Development Diary is showcased on page 38. This dev diary was continued for months and the Dreamcast version of Peter Molyneux's god simulator looked to be in a fairly advanced stage of completion when it was pulled. At the time of writing, the DC version has never been leaked but who knows if this will change in the future...

The Games That Never Were: Episode 5

We've featured every episode of Pcwzrd13's The Games That Never Were here at the Junkyard, and this weekend saw the release of the long-awaited fifth instalment. The series (as you'd expect from the name) takes a look at Dreamcast games that were teased but never found their way onto the system with a full release.

Episode 5 continues the trend, and investigates some pretty intriguing cancelled games. This time the series casts an eye over such gems as Promethian Designs' Picassio, PC favourite Outcast, Quark from Quantic Dreams, Dee Dee Planet from Dori Dock and Spiral Nightmare from Sega.


Thanks again to Pcwzrd13 for putting this awesome series together and offering us yet another glimpse of some titles that could have made the Dreamcast's library even more impressive than it already is. You can read more about the series (and watch the other episodes) here and here
