Unreleased Mega Drive Prototype of 'Putty Squad' On eBay

Putty Squad Mega Drive Prototype on eBayIn 1994 gamers around the world were eagerly awaiting the follow up to Commodore Amiga classic, Putty. Unfortunately though, only Super Nintendo owners were lucky enough to enjoy this anticipated sequel, with the Mega Drive, Amiga and MS-DOS versions of Putty Squad missing in action. The 16-bit Sega port, however, has just been sold at auction, providing hope for those who missed out.

While there is no guarantee that the game code contained within this unreleased port (that just sold for AU $1,390.00) will ever see the day of light, we can only hope that the new owner will be just as generous as the other prototype collectors within the community by releasing a ROM for all to enjoy.

Going by the screenshots within the auction, it would suggest that Putty Squad was all but complete for the Mega Drive and most likely set for release, moments before the plug was pulled for whatever reason.

As usual, keep checking back to see if any further developments are made on this previously thought to be missing title and whether or not it will be publicly preserved online.
