    I was recently going through a large number of magazines from the PlayStation and Saturn era when I came across an article about a multiplatform game called Animalympics. From what I can gather (due to the original text being in a foreign language that isn't one of my strongest points and translation tools not providing much in the way of help), this was either being developed or published by Titus.

    Based on my research, it's possible this was a tie-in with the 1980 animated film of the same title that may have been created to co-incide with the '96 Olympics. Does anyone know if this was actually released? My efforts to learn more have so far proved fruitless, other than finding a brief description and small number of screenshots, as mentioned before. If there's enough demand, I'll look into uploading the scan later...

    If it was released it wasn't on the Saturn. That sort of shovelware was all too common on the PlayStation in Europe so it may have been released on that but I can't say I ever saw it.

    The pc version was released in Europe, it was probably pc screens you seen. You can still find it for sale for next to nothing if you search. And it was actually released under the name - Wild Animal'ympics

    They were probably thinking about porting it over, but it didn't happen by the looks of it.

    Cheers for that - I think it's safe to conclude any PlayStation or Saturn version of this was simply going to be a port of the PC game.

    Also in Consolemania issue 56 there is an article about the game with three shots ( different from Anthaemia's article ).
