Robotech Crystal Dreams





There are some poor quality videos of Robotech Crystal Dreams, a failed game from the 1990's. For all the fans gloating over it, it looks pretty bad.



There were a lot of grand ideas for what it was going to be. What kids actually recovered from the demo appeared to be a very simple flight simulator with a small number of models from the Robotech universe, too small to actually see anything.

Like a lot of 1990's software, it was a big idea with only a tiny amount ever getting finished. Modern frameworks may be a lot slower, but are high level enough that programs get a lot farther than they used to.

The developer of the game managed to create some demo footage of some hidden levels & levels the fans never got to. Most of the footage is character animation for unfinished sections.

It looks like a simple flight simulator with some models from the Robotech universe. They also had some elements of Japanese animation. Besides visuals, it's hard to differentiate a game as a Robotech game. The objective must always be shooting & flying.


There is a Robotech DVD somewhere with more demo footage. While all of you were getting married, I spent my 20's buying the 1st Robotech DVD set, which sadly was not the one containing the demo footage. There were at least 3 sets in total.
