It never really dawned on me that there were games very close to completion but never saw the light of day close to the Mega Drive’s end. By chance I stumbled onto this clip of such a game. This is a clip of a never released game called Hardcore and it looks very good.
What’s interesting is in 2010 two people responsible for Hardcore actually demoed the game. If you watch the video you’ll hear the details and it sounds like they are trying to get the licencing rights to release this game. I really doubt this means it will appear as a Mega Drive cartridge (which would be awesome) but maybe we will still get to play this game some day.
