    I'm not an expert on Neo protos, but there's always a chance the games are -or were- simply left unfinished, hence why nothing more has popped up.

    Quite the opposite actually.
    For the record, this is the first neogeo Proto to surface that was not complete.
    Some men see things as they are, and say why. I dream things that never were, and say why not.

    LOL, hardly game breaking... I've seen released games behave worse.

    I really want to download this game already. This thread spurred me to look up other protos and to my grave disappointment warlock of the fates isn't even available for download. Ahh man...

    Doesn't mean if they had done a release they wouldn't have fixed it.

    I've been waiting for the weekend to catch up to this whole thread, just amazing!
    Thank you NeoTurfMasta for all the hard work to reveal this to the wide world! It blows my mind that something this mature remained completely unseen for so long, and twice over that it's now being preserved.

    It takes an unreleased proto... and lots of net exposure for some of our oldtyme members to post...

    ...I don't condone the lurking... it just seems a shame that people only feel the need to post when something like this happens instead of keeping the place alive... and ticking over...

    Wow! Really exciting news. What a cool find. Congrats NTM on finding this and getting it to work. And extra special thanks for sharing it here with everybody.

    Probably just a coincidence, but something about the character portraits and sprites remind me a bit of Guardian Heroes on the Saturn.

    I look forward to hearing more news about this as it develops!

    yeah, I was actually thinking the same thing. the Gallo character looks very much like Han from guardian heroes. outside of design similarities, there is something to be said about the "line" weight and pixel rendering. There is something very Treasure about it.

    Protos have different stages, this one is obviously in Alpha stage not even Beta. You can't expect all protos to be complete. When a game hits Alpha stage, that's when it's presented to the company if they want to greenlight it and continue production beyond Alpha. Depending on the company, they can accept demos for games that are anywhere from 40-75% complete. This game I am assuming was scrapped completely unless this romset isn't the most recent version and there were a lot of changes after it.
