Back in the dark ages of video gaming was an infamous console called the 3DO. It’s probably most famous for the worst Legend of Zelda game ever made, which you can endure clips from here. Most of the 3DO’s catalog featured full-motion video, and the subject of this post is no different in that respect. The fact that this title was completely unhinged and had among its cast Dr. Timothy Leary, however, set it apart. It was never finished, due in no small part for the imagery of a plane and a space shuttle hitting a skyscraper.
Unfortunate references aside, here’s the game’s original trailer (from the time before even 720p was a thing) with extended footage added to produce a seven-minute long “Sundance Trailer” by writer/director, Grady Sain:
I could totally see this project being picked up again for cinematic release by just the right sort of
crazy-go-nuts creative filmmaker, but I’m not sure which director I’d give it to for completion. John Waters is no stranger to weird stuff, but I don’t think bluegrass music is his thing. Maybe some intrepid comedy troupe will create an off-off-off-off-Broadway production of it?
Anyway, if that was somehow tantalizing, there was also a 7″ record released to promote the game which can be heard here. Enjoy!
