This very exciting sequel first surfaced around 2008, with two brilliant demos – showing a sequel which was very comparable to Metal Dust, but with out the Super CPU enhancements. The parallax scrolling in particular was beautiful, and the guardians were massive!
Work halted, and seems to have halted for a very long time now – due to programmer illness. It seemingly unlikely that the game would ever get completed, which is a massive shame – as this would be a brilliant release (especially with a cartridge edition being on the cards).
Jan Schulze helped to confirm that the game was never to be finished, with this translated post from Forum64 and the developer:
“I regret to inform you that Enforcer 2 is definitely dead. For several years, I find no longer the time that is required to such a project reasonable and not just kind of – to be completed. Work and family life have here a clear priority. That there are still people who want a completion, makes me even a little proud, but not change the fact that it would be totally unrealistic and also dishonest to assert that the game would be finished sometime yet already.”
Here are the two previews which were released, which show just how promising the game could have been. And recently we have added some extra graphics which Oliver Lindau had done, but were not used.
It has come to light that Protovision had tried to obtain the sources from AndrÁ© to complete the title – but all the disks were accidently binned when clearing the attic out – so it seems that the game is sadly lost forever.
