This game is the biggest unknown of all, and it's in Chinese. I found it on a retail demo CD that I bought years ago. Below is an excerpt of Joe Siegler's contribution to the discussion on 3D Realms' bulletin board.

I asked Scott about the Paladins game, and he told me this..

We had a deal with an Asian company to produce a game, but the deal was never actually signed and delivered. However, they were working on the game anyway, and released (to our knowledge) only a demo. Since it was never widely available over here in the states, we never legally pursued them over it.

The short of it is that you can have that file, but we don't consider it a "game" as it never was finished, and never went anywhere.

Scott tells me they were also working on a second game with the Build engine, but to his knowledge it never even reached demo form, so there's nothing to find on it. He doesn't even remember the name of the game or what it was about.

This is what Ken (Silverman) had to say about this game.

"Apogee was going to license the engine to a new team in Hong Kong.  Very shortly after, the project was cancelled due to communication problems.  I wasn't involved with the dealings myself, but I'm pretty sure that they weren't supposed to release an unfinished demo.  Of course now that's just a piece of ancient history."

26 March 2008 — I have just been emailed a link to a Taiwanese shopping/auction site that has the game box photographed front and back. I imagine this is fairly compelling evidence that the game did indeed make it to market. Thanks DarkRanger for the hookup.
