ET and the Search for Dragora

« Return to Softography list

A second ET game, developed for the major consoles, for NewKidCo, aimed at young children and timed for release alongside the 20th anniversary re-release of the movie.

This was one of the projects that killed Zed Two, as the publisher claimed they ran out of money and stopped paying - owing us around $1m - and we couldn't afford to take legal action to recover what we were owed.

The game was finished, and pretty good, but was never released.

† Sales Estimates
Almost all sales estimates given are educated guesses. Being lowly developers we rarely had access to the publisher's sales infomation, and in many cases hadno contact with the publisher whatsoever after each game was completed. Even in cases where we were the owners of the development studio and on royalty deals, for various reasonsit was very rare that we received accurate sales figures from the publishers involved. We'd be delighted to correct any errors, or hear more accurate sales figures for any of the titles here.Please email the webmaster if you know something we don't!

Credits
The credits listed are accurate to the best of our recollection, but if we've made any errors or ommissions (quite likely!) please email the webmaster to let us know and we'll try to make a correction as soon as possible.
