The Japanese game Magic Castle, which was sent to publishing companies in 1998 and thus announced, made its debut exactly 23 years later.
We have seen many games since the game world started to emerge. Of course, not only the games we see, but many of the games either were canceled after we saw their announcement or were shelved without our knowledge. A game of this kind has surfaced recently.
In 1998, a small Japanese developer team sent Magic Castle, the game it had been working on for about 8 months, to several publishing companies, including Sony. Unfortunately, the game’s development process did not continue and the game remained with its announcement in 1998.
About 20 years after the game was announced and shelved, PIROWO, one of the former team members, found the source code of the game and completed the game. In short, Magic Castle made its debut approximately 23 years after its announcement. You can find the gameplay video for the game released in 1998 below.
