1998 Black Flag and Vulcan Software
By 1998, things were looking extremely bleak for the Amiga platform, but there were people still trying to keep the dream alive. None more so than Black Flag and Vulcan Software with the development of Caveman Species.
This was to be a strategy game in a similar form to Command and Conquer, but set within a prehistoric setting. It was previewed by various magazines of the time, including Amiga Computer Studio 1998 05 and 09, Amiga Magazyn and CU Amiga.
Sadly it was never to surface and disappeared without a trace. It is believed that the shrinking market was to blame, and it was deemed to be just a little too late.
But how far did the game get, and could anything be preserved or shown? It is believed that the game got to a playable state, but we don’t know how far exactly. Hopefully we’ll hear soon from the team to find out more about this promising title.
If you know anything about the game, please do get in touch.
