Unreleased Ripcord games

Post#1 » Wed Apr 29, 2015 1:10 am

So I just picked up Spec Ops 2, and on the back of the manual it has an ad for 3 games that are listed as "coming soon". Ripcord is out of business and only one game has any info I could find.

The three are:
Legend of the Blade Masters (was also coming to PC, I could find some info that it was an RPG and there are a couple previews for the PC version)
Gorkamorka (apparently a version of a tabletop RPG, all the info I found was about the tabletop game)
Shrapnel (seems to be an FPS of some type)

Does anyone have any more info on the games?

I actually found out about those games from the back of that same manual and that's how they ended up in episode 3. :)

Shrapnel can be found in episode 2.

I should have checked out those videos before even asking, I just thought it was cool that unreleased games were there.

Yeah, it seems Ripcord didn't have much luck with the Dreamcast considering 3/4 of the games they had heading to the Dreamcast were cancelled.

Damn shame the RPGs didn't make it, we could have used a couple more.
