Unreleased Zool animated intro

As discussed in this thread I've dug out the animated intro from a canned GameCube/PS2 version of Zool from my archives and uploaded it to youtube.

Back in 2004/05 Zoo Digital Publishing attempted a remake of the iconic Amiga platformer - Zool. They worked with DDI (Data Design Interactive) on a 3D Gamecube/PS2 version of the franchise. The game sucked bad, and got canned (luckily). DDI changed the lead character in the game from Zool to a gingerbread man, and released the notoriously bad Ninjabread Man instead (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ninjabread_Man ).

This is the animated intro video produced for this Zool remake.

[ Show youtube player ]

Let's hope that one day, Zool gets reintroduced in the fine quality remake that he deserves, or left alone as a cult classic :-)

Would be interesting to see the whole video converted with that filter, and maybe a reduction in frame rate. What s/w did you use to filter the frames, s2325?

The video is kinda done in a similar cartoony style to Viewtiful Joe (Capcom) on the Gamecube - a great game, though I found it a bit too hard in places.

Love the retro style video stills s2325

Someone should graft this on to the start of the CD32 version.
