Since there is still a lot of speculation/missinformation being repeated online (mainly YouTube) and a general feeling in places that it was a mistake for Atari to cancel the Panther and indeed some saying those at Atari Corp feel in hindsight it should of been released, i thought it best to create a thread to try and finally draw something of a line under the speculation. Many like myself, KGRAMR, Shinto etc have contacted Atari Corp and it's now very much established that despite supposed 'expert claims' Cybermorph and Crescent Galaxy were never started on The Panther. Nor were Pitfighter(Domark), The Humans, Raiden or Steel Talons (Imagitec Design) Jeff Minter explained to EDGE magazine, back when Game Cube Unity was still being worked on, his jumping beasts demo's were test routines for his planned Sci-Fi epic/Star Raiders-esq game, inspired by Ian M.Banks, but he only coded on Panther for a few weeks, before moving onto Jaguar. He liked the Panther hardware, found it more powerful than the SNES. Scott D.Williamson (atari Corp) has talked on Atari Age forum of doing a simple graphics demo on Panther. Jim Gregory talks of his Panther exp here along with Guildo H, talking to myself of The Crypt moving from Konix to Panther: http://forums.atari.io/index.php/to...-panther-rpg-the-crypt-lost-dragon-interview/ http://forums.atari.io/index.php/to...bout-atari-panther-and-lost-lynxjaguar-games/ I also contacted: Fred Gill and Brian Pollock (ATD) Atari UK's:Bob Katz, Mike Fulton, Les Player (RIP) and Darryl Still Domark's Head Of Projects Richard Brown and Tengen's Lee Actor who both confirmed Pitfighter was NEVER started. Joel Sieder (Atari Corp) he did the Panther O/S..didn't think hardware was much more advanced than the SNES, wouldn't of made much impact had it been released. 1 coder, 1 artist and 2 bosses from Tiertex:Strider 2 was planned/Green lit. Rob Zydbel-Was working on original games for Panther, but cannot recal which, it's been far too many years. Susan Mcbride:Atari Corp-Never replied to Q's sent. Martin Brennan-Too busy with work to reply to Q's sent. BJ West and Ted Taq. Atari Corp Peter Johnson who confirmed he/Andrew Bond WERE converting Shadow Of The Beast to Panther. No One in my experience felt Panther being cancelled was a mistake or would of bought Atari/The Jaguar any time. I will put up UK Press coverage in a seperate post or posts..
