Almagica [CONFIRMED: ABANDONED]

Here's what I found about Almagica:

- Preview posted by DSP on aminet on 29-Jul-96
- Second preview posted on http://www.ind.mh.se/~ing9435 14-Feb-1997,
- Sometime in Aug 1997 it was agreed that the game would be released by Vulcan software
- In Feb 98 the Vulcan website had a job advert for a programmer to join DSP to develop Almagica.
- Vulcan announced in August 98 "D.S.P. Software, the development team responsible for the Amiga CDRom title 'Almagica Scions of a Forgotten World' have decided to cease all development of the title due to the economic realities of the Amigas constantly eroding user base. Vulcan Software understand and support their decision." alongside this are many posts to usenet discussing rumours of Almagica being canceled.
- Dec 98 no mention of Almagica remains on Vulcan's website.

I think this is pretty conclusive evidence that the full version of Almagica never reached completion.

You could ask Orgin on irc.amigaworld.net
I'm pretty sure he was involved in the project.
