It Came From The Desert - Cinemaware's unreleased SEGA action version officially announced!

Cinemaware spoke to me today and confirmed the unreleased 1990 Sega Mega Drive version of It Came From The Desert will be available for pre-order as of early 2015. “It Came From the Desert: The Action Game – Extended Cut" is an action-based offshoot to the award-winning Amiga classic "It Came From the Desert with a brand new intro-sequence, new cutscenes, a new ending sequence and additional gameplay elements. What's more the limited edition will contain an authentic case with slipcover, manual, a real cartridge and mini-poster.

It Came From The Desert was originally going to be a retail release in 1990 for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive and featured an action shooter genre, which was completely different from the original adventure home computer release such as the Amiga. You also played as a teenage pest controller (not a scientist), Buzz who had a bunch of bug busting equipment at his disposal.

It's a shame the game didn't get released officially as it would've been nice to play a more action orientated game than the original adventure version. Still though all is not lost as with today's news we could well be playing that un-released version next year on our Sega systems.

You can soon pre-order the game from the website and also look forward to a more in depth feature from us very soon!
