If you’ve never heard of the PS1 game Magic Castle, there’s a good reason for that. The project was canceled over twenty years ago. But now the game is finished, and you can get your hands on it!

Kotaku has more on the story:

In 1998 a small team of Japanese developers spent eight months working on a game called Magic Castle, which they sent off as a pitch to seven major publishers, including Sony. It never went anywhere, but thanks to emulators and the efforts of one member of the original team, we can now play it and enjoy it anyway.

One of the team members, PIROWO, recently found the source code for the project—created on Net Yaroze—and decided to tie up its loose ends and release it to the public. This game looks cool as hell, not just for its isometric style, but for a number of very modern touches like a customisable UI and dynamic music.

The game is available to download for free.
