A prototype of the unreleased port of Hard Boiled for the Sega Saturn.


  • Unreleased port of the European PlayStation exclusive title for the Sega Saturn. This port was in development and announced but never released for unknown reasons. The port got very far before it was canceled, presumably due to the lack of faith from third-party developers over the life of the system. It seems the release was scheduled sometime after the release of the PlayStation version, possibly before the end of 1997.
  • FMVs are present.
  • You can’t navigate the main menus, only start the game.
  • Unlike other builds, pressing start does NOT allow you to return to the menu or skip to the next level.
  • The title cards seem implemented.



Huge thanks to Pipozor for sharing this prototype with us!
