Time for the next game in the #SegaSaturnCancelled series.
Entry No. 40 - Down In The Dumps
Publisher: Philips Interactive
Developer: Philips Interactive
Planned release date: Q3 1996
Number of players: 1
The game's storyline is about the Blubs, an extraterrestrial family (father and mother Blub, their son and daughter, the grandparents and their pet Stinkie), who crash with their spaceship on a landfill on Earth after being pursued by the villainous Khan and his criminal associates. After surviving the crash, the Blub family goes on to live on the landfill, while trying to repair their damaged spaceship in order to return home. The player is set out on a mission by grandfather Blub, an inventor and the spaceship's technician, to find the missing parts needed to reconstruct the spaceship. Meanwhile, Khan, whose ship also crashed on the landfill after the pursuit of the Blub family, sends out his minions to frustrate the efforts of the Blubs.
Observations of the game:
This is terrible. Seriously, it’s awful. This is my first entry that makes me think “good, I’m glad it didn’t come out!” because having looked through footage, my eyes hurt.
Why Was It Cancelled:
Why? Philips didn’t want to bring their old CDi games to the console at a fraction of the cost. The reviewed copies were poor. A copy exists somewhere of the Saturn version but, is it worth finding it? Not really!
So Can I Play This:
Yes, on PC and Philips CDi.
Would I play this on Saturn:
As a child possibly, now, no.
