Unreleased Games?

I've just been looking at a list of unreleased CD32 games, and if they are truly 'unreleased' it should mean there was at least some work done on them. I'm wondering if anyone has any previews/demos/news or basically has even heard of these unreleased CD32 games:

Elite III - First Encounters
Extractors - Diggers 2
Hired Guns
Sensible World of Soccer
UFO 2: Terror from the Deep (On PC as X-Com TFTD)
Zool3

Obviously some of these were only upgrades or CD ports of old Amiga games. I saw these on a big list of unreleased games at CD32 source, http://website.lineone.net/%7Ecd32/unreleased.htm
I have actually found evidence of Diggers 2 here http://www.ifrance.com/ninjaw/cd32/ and this site also has an identical games list (Someones been thievin methinks).

I bet some of those didn't even got started. but there are others that might be in some playable state, like MegaRace CD32.

On a related note I wonder if anyone knows anything else about Monkey Island 1 CDTV than is stated here.

According to this page Monkey Island was developed for the CDTV but never released:

and more interesting it states CDTV on these pages...

THX was a little to complicated for accelerated Amigas let alone CD32

An old danish tv show who did game previews/reviews/movies/books showed MegaRace once, cant remember which version but they definitly talked about both the Amiga and PC version.

Actually, Planetside from Psygnosis was *never* intended to be a game! It was only a technology demo.

As a demo. I've got it myself and really enjoyed watching it. Especially since I only knew the CDTV version that came with Lemmings back then, which is shorter than the FM Towns version.

Yeah it's not a bad demo, really just loads of Psygnosis intros put together.

If anybody wants I can upload the FM Towns version tonight when I get home? (you can watch it via the emulator Unz)

Just read on Kultboy about the unreleased "Spud Boy" for the CD32. Is there a self-running or a playable demo?

Hey, they've stolen a pic from me. What a scandal. In this game you control a potato, strange enough.

Extractors - Diggers 2

I probably still have the email adres of the developer of the game. He told me there was a beta CD32 only, but it was far from complete if I remeber correctly. There was no sound and the levels were unpolished.
