As part of the launch and release of The Games That Weren’t book, we are  adding assets and content that didn’t make it to print as bonus DLC content to share with you.

Within the book is a 10 page discussion Q/A piece  on Gauntlet DS, talking to Creative director Micah Russo, technical director David Sullivan, sound designer and composer Yannis Brown, original lead engineer Adam Rippon, lead artist Tracey King, and artist Gerald Broas.

Although complete and even reviewed by Retro Gamer magazine, it was decided not to release the game due to the market drying up – which was a harsh decision. Thankfully if you know where to look, the game can be found online to play.

Whilst doing the Q/A piece, we took a number of screenshots from the leaked game and also did a hi-res scan of the advert that was printed which didn’t get included in the book. These can be found below, along with some character concepts by Arvin Bautista.
