Thalamus - Unreleased Amiga games.

Were any subsequently released?
From the wiki:



The Search for Sharla (1990, Spectrum, C64, Amiga)
Delta Patrol (1992, Amiga)
Arsenal FC (1992, Amiga)
Beastmaster (1992, Amiga)
Nobby the Aardvark (1992, Amiga)
Street Warriors (1993, Amiga)
Restrictor (1993, Amiga)

I think Iv'e seen a video of mag pics for beastmaster on youtube.

I always liked Thalamus- the name and art style mostly. I dont think i ever bought a single Thalamus game- I played the armalyte demo to death though.

Yes, and Arsenal F.C., Nobby the Aardvark (reviewed/completed but, sadly, never made it to market like the C64 version did) and S.U.B. only had demos/previews released before Thalamus went into receivership in 1993.

Delta Patrol (Amiga version of C64 game Delta??), Street Warriors and the other games mentioned by Adrian presumably were either too early on in development for demos to have been released or, as in the case of The Search for Sharla, had been scrapped well before Thalamus' demise. Fortunately, Summer Camp and Winter Camp were licensed out to Black Legend and released on the Amiga in '93 before Thalamus disappeared for good.

I see, so it got released. Reviews of it were low scoring it seems except for the one amiga- but they could be soft on games.

I think it's too easy to lost, wander and fight without purpose. Game is very long as you can see on YouTube longplay.

Apparently this one was, indeed, scrapped on all formats......because the development company (Esprit) ran into financial difficulties and couldn't pay their coders. Thalamus ultimately pulled the plug, though, as the game ran way over time and budget.

Interestingly, the former head-honcho of Esprit Software Lance Mason reckons he still has an Amiga demo too. I wonder if aGTW has been in contact with him......

Given the time frame, looks like Street Warriors was a beat-em 'up being developed in France for the Atari Falcon too (see HERE). Nothing more heard after that from what I can tell.

Also Restrictor was supposedly being developed by Tiertex (or was it Arc?), but yep Thalamus' demise put paid to the release. Probably no big loss if Tiertex was involved in the development, though!
