King's Ransom by Readysoft

It's not so old, but certainly rare.
This promising title was longly previewed in many magazines, along with a lot of info and screenshots, but never released, as far as I know.
Impossible that a demo, at least, never came out, or I can't explain all that screenshots!
Any info about this?

There's some info about it and screenshots on this Italian page:

http://www.retrogaming.it/aprile2002.htm

It was going to be released on PC & Amiga.

Wondering why isn't there at least an entry in HOL under MIA, at least those screenshots should be preserved from that Italian site.

i concur. also, in the page of that site, immediately above this one there is named another unreleased game, intended for amiga only, Red 41 The Silent Death: the column says it was a project of a group of a yet unpublished programmers, with a great graphic appeal.
and another one too, probably remained in the state of concept, appears middle of the page. maybe simply mock up by the illustrator, who knows? it looks like an another world clone. i'll check my collection of less the 10 issues of that ancient magazine to find better images to scan
