    Hi guys! This thread will serve as a master list based on the various website that hold info about the unreleased, planned & mentioned games for the Jaguar. This is inspired mostly on the list that was put on Hans Reutter's Cyberroach website, which was created and updated by many people in 2000 IIRC alongside the info that's avaiable on the net at the moment + help from some of the old veterans of the community, alongside info found by my own. This list will be constantly update if new info pops up about them :D

    As of 08/02/2017:

    - Automaniacs: This was a spiritual successor to Club Drive that was in development by a company called Visual Dimensions 3D (who were also responsable for the Jaguar Exteme Flight Joystick). The existance of this game was brought up on JagFest '97 where VD3D held a Q&A session about their upcoming Jag-projects. Automaniacs was going to feature
    several substanial improvements such as better graphics by putting a better use of gourard-shading, use of light sourcing, a high framerate, and three modes of play: Time Attack Mode, a Race Mode and a Exploratory Mode. It was planned to contain five worlds plus hidden ones, such as The Old West World, House World, City World, Toyland and Country Side World. For unknown reasons it was canned though screenshots were avaiable at one time, suggesting that there was a lot of programming done. The team behind were a guy named Barry, Alan Burress and Paul Longtin. For 1 or 2 players.

    I never knew about EWJ on Jaguar, interesting! What information is there to confirm they were gonna do EWJ2? Seems unlikely if the first never even got out.

    That's the mystery, where was EWJ2 mentioned for the system? That's something i'm actívely looking for.
