Xybots alpha... was wha?

Recommended Posts

I heard a rumor, not all too sure how true it is/isn't, that Xybots was meant to be gauntlet 3, but atari left that they didn't need a 3rd gaunlet title so far after the orginals, has any1 else heard this rumor? was there any pics of the gauntlet/Xybots engine, i think i would have been a great idea... but that's jus me ;-), oh by the way, I AM new here, hi to all :)

Never heard that rumor, but anything is possible. Mr. Driller was supposed to be Dig Dug 3.

I heard that rumor too. When you look at the gameplay, it certainly would make sense, as they play similar, except Xybots is 3-D.

gaulet 3-d woulda looked cool, i thought, weird that the idea would be dropped, but oh well...

I believe the rumor may be true. Xybot were originally planned as 3D Gauntlet but they decided not to go that way and changed the look to futuristic appearance rather than fantasy theme like Gauntlet.

The rumour is true, I asked Ed Logg about it at this year's CGE :)

 

Basically it started off as Gauntlet 3, and when Atari said they didn't want another Gauntlet title, was given a sci-fi theme instead and turned into Xybots.

it's too bad it was changed, i wonder how far the game was completed before it was changed to Xybots? was there any pics? or roms, i woner, i would loved to have seen this, but i guess it's a long gone by now huh?
