Going off memory, Gamesmaster TV show had a feature on Falcon, Space Junk featured as well there.

Irony being it never appeared on Falcon or Jag CD or Sega CD, or anything at all :'(

I had the Space Junk demo or whatever it was when I had a Falcon some decade ago and was truly impressed with it. Of course after looking into it because I then wanted to play the game was disappointed to learn that production had ceased for it and was cancelled.

It's Imagitec though, so par the course.

 

Freelancer screens supplied to Gamesmaster Mag? try running on high end PC running Argonaut's BRender software.Total B.S shots and that annoyed the hell out of me, as it was these screens and preview of Tempest 2000, along with Gamesmaster TV's rolling footage of beta version of AVP, that convinced me to get a Jaguar, day 1.

 

I know it was common practice to produce mock screens, just so press had something to run with, but it did bloody annoy that yet again, industry and press lied to consumer.

 

No freelancer, no Space Junk, i sometimes think they should of simply stuck to clones and conversions...

 

Oh and annoucing Viking Child was only the 1st of 3 games in the series headed to Lynx was a bit bloody premature, game hadn't exactly set ST/Amiga world alight and i know Lynx needed a Wonderbloy clone to go agains't Sega's Game Gear, but lets see how how 1st game sells, eh Imagitec?.
