Spoon: Trial of Gods

Browsing the old paper Amiga magazines we met an article about this game preview: Spoon: Trial of Gods. Does anyone remember anything about this? Does anyone have those fragments mentioned in the article?

Here you have a scan of the article which I tried to traslate it to English. Note the author of the text was, eerm, lets say ... slightly retarded. I think probably known him personally. Article comes from April 1996.

Another interesting game project is "Spoon: Trial of Gods" from the newly formed french group "Aries".

It is supposed to be a platformer like Superforg or Aladdin, but this one should be different. At first it should have really awesome graphics, never seen before. Also the story should be original, nothing like "save the princess". It should take place in a fantasy world with a rich history, you will meet interesting characters - some friendly, some not and the main character is evolving in time. The story is non-linear, there is several ways to complete the game and has various endings. Also should contain some extra levels, like Doom like shooter, Xtreme Racing style race or Guardian like flight.

Those are the promises from the authors. We were given a few examples. The first one is a scrolling through the first level. Although the system for a row-by-row dynamic colour changing has not been implemented yet and those actual 16 colours look poor, it is one of the best looking scrollings I have ever seen. Dual playfield, 50fps and the smooth scroll by 1/4 of the pixel (WTF!! Predseda) makes the difference. Spatial perception is so good that the resulting depth is almost a stereogram-like. Excellent are also screenshots from first two levels of the forest world. After the flood of 2nd class AGA games with amateurish graphics, pretending to be a top commercial titles (name for all: Akira) one can not even believe we can play something like this. It is clearly shown that Trash / Delight out of Amiga scene is a real professional. The last part is consisting of cute animations of few sprites (a chameleon and a mushroom).

The final game should run on A1200 and above, harddisk is needed, because of huge data ammount (over 10MB).

The bad news is the group came into a financial trouble and is looking for a sponsor. We hope they will succeed and the project will be finished.

Spoon trial of gods

Voilà un jeu de plates-formes qui pourrait faire du bruit, si Aries soft-
ware arrive à le faire éditer. Les spoons sont d’adorables petites bes-
tioles qui ressemblent à un croisement de Zoo/ et Sonic. De gentils
extra-terrestres leur ayant rendu visite leur laissèrent neuf ”dieux”
tutélaires pour les aider à évoluer sans faire trop d'erreurs, quand
d'autres extraterrestres, méchants ceux-là, arrivèrent pour annexer
leur planète. A la suite d'un long combat, leurs neuf dieux arrivèrent
à repousser les envahisseurs, puis s'isolèrent dans des cocons pour se
reposer, sous la garde de neuf spoons. Malheureusement, l'un des
dieux” s'est réveillé avant les autres, et prenant son rôle trop à
coeur, à charger son spoon de s'emparer des 8 autres cocons. Vous
devez donc guider l’un des spoons gardiens dans sa quête pour les
récupérer. Au fil du jeu, vous libérerez d’autres spoons qui vous aide-
ront à rétablir le bon ordre des choses. Techniquement impression-
nant (50 images/ seconde), Spoon est également doté de plusieurs
innovations quant au concept habituel des jeux de plates-formes.
Ainsi, l’histoire n’est pas linéaire, mais selon vos décisions, le jeu peut
se terminer de différentes façons. C'est prévu pour fonctionner sur
A1200. On croise les doigts très fort pour qu’Aries arrive à se faire

éditer. Pour plus d’infos, vous pouvez contacter ]M Stenger, 41 rue
Paul Claudel, 67200 Strasbourg.

Another interesting unreleased game that will never see the light of the day. Maybe we could get more info from developers?
