Video Spotlight: Cancelled Streets of Rage “Reimagining” Footage Leaks Online UPDATE

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

UPDATE

A new version of the leaked Streets of Rage reimagining footage has been uploaded which now includes sound. The prototype footage features a playable game and is not pre-rendered.

Ruffian Games business and management chief Gary Liddon (who also uploaded this new video) has also revealed more about the game:

“It was something we built very rapidly and represents pre-pre-pre-pre (lots of pres) pre-Alpha quality. Even so it has a certain charm 🙂 What’s the story behind it all? Like a lot of developers we work on a lot of different prototypes, they’re just not usually shown in public. In this case an older version of the same video was leaked last week which came as a bit of a surprise if I’m honest. As it had no sound I thought there wouldn’t be any harm sharing a version with audio. Beyond that there’s not a lot more I can say unfortunately :)”

Sean Noonan has also chimed in to answer a question about why the game was cancelled. His response: “I don’t really have a solid answer to that :(”
