Back in 1993 there was a "The One" coverdisk demo and several previews for a Psygnosis platform come beat 'em up fusion called Superhero. There was a fair amount of anticipation for the game, it was 99% complete, posters and other promo materials were produced, then nothing. It simply vanished. Everyone assumed it was simply a case of the game being canned as is so typical in the games industry, despite its near completion. In fact the truth was far more complex..

Good info! That was a great read. Talk about all the bad luck those poor guys went through - for nothing! It's a shame they can't file suit with the police for lost revenue!

I remember it! It was previewed in a french video game magazine by the time and looked very promising. I was disappointed to not read more about it after that.
