There has been plenty to talk about when it comes to prototypes this year and so its fitting that we end the year with a look at a prototype game in action, Atari Games’ Primal Rage II. What footage has existed of this game has not been much aside from seeing the character selection screens but KLOV Forum user Jehuie is friends with an ex-Atari Games hardware designer that happens to have the last version of Primal Rage II in his possession, which was ver. 0.36A. He dug it out of storage and recorded the footage we see below for the world to see more of the game, which until now has been a few screenshots and a ROM on MAME that only shows the intro and maybe the character selection screens. Funny enough he has the game running in the cabinet of another prototype game, the puzzle game Freeze which was also canned but also not the best cabinet for Primal Rage II since that requires six buttons and the Freeze cab only appears to have two. Either way, at the very least we can see the game in action now although because of the lack of buttons he cannot turn into one of the dinosaurs to show those off. We can now see what inspirations the game was pulling from (seems like it would have been Killer Instinct meets Primal Rage) although who knows how the game might have ended up had it made it through the full development cycle.
