Primal Rage 2 Prototype Playable in Illinois Arcade

Subscribe to 95.7 KEZJ on

A certain arcade in Illinois has gotten an extremely rare game cabinet featuring a prototype of the cancelled sequel we always wanted for Primal Rage.

Polygon reports that the Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, Illinois is proud to announce that it is the only place in the world where the public can try the prototype for Primal Rage 2, which was cancelled in 1996. This cabinet features Version 0.36 of the final game, which means that it only has a third of what was originally intended for the dinosaur-filled sequel, but it still provides plenty of changes that we never expected from Primal Rage. In particular, the ability of each character to change back and forth between a dinosaur and a human character showcases a new feature that Atari intended to bring to the finalized game.

All seven giant deities of Primal Rage appear to have returned, each with his own human form, which is actually a god form, as indicated by their size compared to the neanderthals worshiping them in the background. Given its rarity, Primal Rage 2 is a prized possession of both arcades and game collectors alike. Nevertheless, this cabinet at the Galloping Ghost Arcade marks the first time the public will have the chance to try out Primal Rage 2.

Might just be worth a road trip if you’re into that sort of thing.
