Another game which was said to be released from Kele Line in 1987 (Mentioned in Soft, #1, January/February 1987, pg. 10). It is another title from Kele Line which we know little about, but we can guess what happened to it anyway.
The company sadly went bankrupt in late 1987 and as a result any developments were scrapped. Nothing has ever been seen of the game.
Rune Vendler got in touch with GTW64 and confirmed that the game was eventually released by Starvision as “M.A.C.H”, which you can checkout here… http://www.gamebase64.com/game.php?id=4494&d=18&h=0
More details of this were found by Jazzcat in IC RUN 1988 (issue 1) on page 48, with Jazzcat explaining:
“The 4th Dimension / The Fourth Dimension was the working title while the game was to be a KELE LINE title, but the coder Thomas Zelikman broke the contract with KELE LINES owner Keld Jensen.
The game then changed name to M.A.C.H. Thomas tried to get the game out via Danish “World Games” and then via “Hewson” – Hewson required alot of changes to the game which Thomas then worked on… Then Søren Grønbech and STARVISION seemed to have a better deal for him. So the game was finished under the label STARVISION.”
So there we have it – the name had basically just changed through development. Case very much closed!

This game was released as “M.A.C.H.” by Starvision.
Thanks Rune, was it just renamed and released like that?
