Today we have great news for all N64 fans and for all who are interested in the history of video games. Indeed, “Forest of Illusion” – a group that has set itself the goal of preserving the history of Nintendo (consoles, games, etc.) – got their hands on the unreleased game Dinosaur Planet.
This 2000 build is from a private collector from Sweden. It is not known where the collector got this build from. But that shouldn’t interest us at this point.
As I said, the game was never finished and therefore never published, but a few years later Dinosaur Planet became Star Fox Adventures for the GameCube – for me one of the best games on the system.
Dinosaur Planet has now found its place in the internet archive, where it will hopefully not be forgotten.
Here is a tweet from “Forest of Illusion” with some screenshots from the game:
The development was halted and moved to the GameCube, where it was then released as Star Fox Adventures. Enjoy! (More info in this thread).

We think that:
It’s cool that Dinosaur Planet showed up after so many years. But it’s a shame that it never came onto the market. But at least a few years later, based on the game, Star Fox Adventures was created – a great adventure.
