Dactyl Joust footage surfaces

With thanks to Ross Sillifant for the heads up (with KidGameR186496 flagging up on the AtariAge forums), new footage of Dactyl Joust’s intro from the Atari Jaguar has surfaced thanks to The Obscure Media Archive:

How was it found? The Obscure Media Archive reported that their dad was the VP of the art department at High Voltage, and the footage was found whilst clearing out the basement.

It’s a great finding, and hoped that more (including something of the game itself) can be found in the future.

  1. Wow that looks like it would have been truly awful to play! More like a survival horror than the arcade action of the original, with unseen enemies dropping out of the sky to eliminate you, only aware of their existence in a small area and direction from you. Don’t think the world missed a lot here, but would like to try it.
