SegaSaturno have yet again managed to raise enough funds for another community release of unfinished games. Having gotten hold of prototype versions of Virtua Cop 2, Silicon Dream's snowboarder Chill and Capcom's Werewolf the Apocalypse for the Sega Saturn, the team has managed to preserve them for all to enjoy.
This is far from being SegaSaturno's first step into the world of preservation. Having previously preserved Soulstar, an unreleased Sega Mega Drive 32X game last year, the team has been busy collecting enough donations from the community to make the release of these Sega Saturn games possible. As of last week, the required €600 was finally met thanks to a large selection of generous donations from all over.
Of the three games released in this pack of betas, prototypes and unfinished code, Werewolf the Apocalypse and Chill come as a real treat having never seen a retail release.
Chill was originally set to arrive on the Sega Saturn in 1998, but was eventually cancelled due to the planned launch being too close to the other Sega Saturn snowboarder Steep Slope Sliders. Chill did however see release on the Sony PlayStation should you want to play an original version of the game.

Having teamed up with Role Playing Game producers White Wolf, Capcom planned to release their joint effort Werewolf the Apocalypse for the Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation sometime during 1996. Unfortunately development fell through seeing the release of the game being cancelled for both systems.
Another prototype version of Werewolf the Apocalypse has already been leaked onto the internet, while SegaSaturno insist the build they have put forward this week is a more recent version offering more gameplay than before.
