ACE magazine issue 4 had a pre-production screenshot of Basket Master from Imagine and Dinamic which looks pretty different to the final version we all know from Gary Biasillo.
We’ll ignore the fact that there are no hoops just yet, but focusing on the players – we can see that there is a little more detail compared to the final version – with what seems to be hi-res overlays.
The floor is also a little more detailed and wooden based – so overall it is very different to the final version. This suggests that maybe there was a different version in production, or Andrew Sleigh was brought in later on to replace a graphic artist who had to drop off the project.
Gari confirmed to GTW64 that he did indeed do this earlier version, but just had evolved over time. Graphics may have been changed due to issues with the code early on. Gari soon hopefully to confirm!
Do you know anything more about this version?
