Meet Boo!, the eponymous hero of MicroProse’s regrettably unreleased, multi-platform cartoon scare-em-up. With the witching season almost upon us, you’re in for a real (trick or) treat.
This exclusive, previously unseen VHS footage reveals what might have been under more favourable market conditions, and had the promising game been in the works a year or two earlier.
In my upcoming ‘Games that Weren’t’ article, I’ll be chronicling Boo!’s curtailed development story, and speaking to the talented team who made it hap… well you know what I mean.
Along the way, we’ll discover what went wrong, and why it’s a crying shame the game is more likely to remain an apparition than drop a Putty Squad shaped bombshell.
