Miscellaneous info from Sarah Jane Avory
Regarding UK magazine claims a second Jaguar XJ220 game, built around the Thunderhawk engine on ST/Amiga was being worked on:
"Actually Jaguar XJ220 started life as a 3D polygon game, but we dropped the idea and instead opted for a sprite-based game inspired by games like Outrun and Lotus Turbo Challenge."
I asked what Lynx titles Sarah had worked on and if whilst at Imagitec Design she ever saw any Atari Panther development :
"When working for Imagitec, I was working on an Atari Lynx version of Viking Child, but I left before the game was completed to get a job at Core Design. Never saw Atari Panther."
I also asked about the abandoned Cartridge version of Thunderhawk for the Sega Mega Drive:
"Megadrive version of Thunderhawk looked the same as the Amiga version, and ran just as fast. In fact, it took me just 1 day to port a working version of the 3D engine from Amiga to Megadrive. Would've like to have finished the project, but then Mega-CD came along and so the project was shelved."
