Yes, V-Real Interactive (correct spelling) was a developer for Jaguar. The Arena
Football Title was at probably 80-90% complete when theJaguar platform died. I'm certain
there are a few prototypes out there.
V-Reel will develop
and market Arena Football exclusively for Jaguar. This represents the first license of the
Arena Football League for home video game systems.
While still shots of Arena Football make for great
pictures, the self running demo was not that impressive, it was just running too slow. The
intro screens were very nicely animated... all being completely rendered. The game screen
itself reminded me of a cross between Cyberball and Madden 3DO. I'm sure they can improve
the speed for the final version, in which case Arena looks to be one of the top football
games out there. The demo showed digitized characters with rendered uniforms for a surreal
football feeling. While the animation was nice on the intro screens, it just wasn't there
on the actual game screen. While I didn't spend a lot of time observing Arena, it was
apparent that this game still has a way to go in development.
