A prototype of the canceled "Ecco II: Sentinels of the Universe" for the Sega Dreamcast.
 
Notes
This game was canceled around the time Sega went third party and halted production of the Sega Dreamcast.
Possibly the last build created.
Contains no music or sound.
Has an active debugger enabled.
The game works on emulators.
An anonymous contributor has made a self-boot CDI so that the game can be burned and played on a retail Dreamcast.
You can download this here.

Wowza, fantastic.

 

The original was a graphical showcase for the DC and the Tim Follin music, along with Tom Baker voice work, really added to the atmosphere, game was so chuffing hard though :-(

 

I still poured in the hours mind, with  the official DC mag playing guide in front of me.

 

Wonder IF Sega ever paid Tim Follin for his music as i recal reading interview with Tim at the time (game had just been converted to the PS2) and he was still waiting for payment.

 

 

Would of loved to of seen this appear.

 

I went onto buy Jaws on PS2 by same developer, but man that damn camera system simply crippled the game.

Excuse thread bump, but thought DC needed a bit more love on here.

 

Stumbled across an old interview (October 2000) with Ecco DC MD, Andras Csaszar, whom, when asked IF they were making a sequel, admitted they were working with Sega on some interesting projects, but only Sega could comment on Ecco sequels...

 

 

But it was more his comment that as fantastic as Dreamcast Ecco looked, he didn't think his team had even scratched the surface when it came to built in features and functionality DC hardware offered.
