Riders, a canceled project from the Eden studio

Updated: Nov 9, 2021

Technically Riders is not really a canceled game. It is a "pitch" made by Eden to obtain funding from Infogrames.

"Kya: Dark Lineage" is the mixture of "B-Witch" (the girl, the wolves) and of "Riders" (flights in the clouds with islands in the sky). Riders wanted to be a flying version of Crash Team Racing

In video, we see a marketing document. The studio members knew full well that he would never be released on Dreamcast. The document mentions on the other hand "next gen Dreamcast and PS2 consoles"

This kind of project has zero code, it's a prototype made in 3DS or Maya.

Thanks to "Defense force" for sharing.
