Thanks to Tom Porter, we have more goodies for you when the rest of the LAP Project staff has their hands tied. This time, enjoy Space Berserker, a Mega LD launch title released in 1993.
In other news, you may have noticed some changes to the site. The Inventory section has been cleared out, the Music Gallery links are dead, and a LaserActive Release Database has been added. This is part of an ongoing transition and gussying-up of the site. Eventually, we will be returning the Music Gallery section with a more reliable upload host, as well as posting a miscellanious Image Gallery of all of our LaserActive-related images. In addition, we’ll add a new something pertaining to our friend Tom Porter’s ambitious new channel, LaserActiveGuy! You can find the channel here: http://www.youtube.com/user/laseractiveguy
Thanks for bearing with us in this time of transition! In the meantime, enjoy the video we’ve uploaded for you. We’re still here!
Our deepest apologies for radio silence! The LAP Project is alive and kicking, and today we’re bringing you a…not-so-classic, I Will: The Story of London. Created by the developers of Hi-Roller Battle, this game is one of the few (other than the JB Harold series) to use real FMV footage for its LD video, rather than CGI or 2D animation. Needless to say, perhaps that was a good thing.
As promised, here’s Side 2 of Goku. Trippier stuff on this side…definitely another MmCN production! Actually, their last…they had one more game in development entitled UFO & ET, but we never got any more info on it (as is, Goku was one of the last games to come out for the LaserActive – 1995).
The LAP Project blog has been featured in the LaserActive section of the Video Game Console Library, one of the most complete and in-depth game console databases the internet has to offer. Thanks to the team there for giving us a shoutout and for all of the work that they do! You can find the specific LaserActive page here:
Today, the LAP Project brings you a true gem – the english version of Goku, an edutainment game from the creators of Melon Brains and 3D Museum!
Stay tuned for Side 2!
One Vajra, two Vajra, old Vajra, NEW Vajra! The rare and excellent Vajra 2 has been uploaded to our Youtube channel! Give it a look.
It’s been too long since our last upload! The LAP Project is alive and well, here to bring you more LaserActive goodness with our playthrough of Vajra. This marks our first recording of a game on the NEC PAC-N1 hardware. Thanks yet again to Tom Porter for lending us the game and the NEC PAC.
NOTE: The ending in this video isn’t from our recording. Long story on that…essentially, we couldn’t beat it. This is the hardest LaserActive game, bar none. So, we borrowed an ending from a pre-existing playthrough. But the rest of the video is ours (we swear!).
Stay tuned for more miscellaneous information (including a translated Japanese promotional flyer that details the unreleased Myst port for the LaserActive), as well as new game recordings!
