E3 2001: Rubu Tribe Hands-on (Canceled Game) 📺 From The Collection TV
For the month of June, It Came From The Collection and ICFTC -TV- are going back in time to E3 2000 and 2001! Some of this has been shared on GameLuv in the past but it’s here again with new trimmings and higher resolution video.
Under development by Outrage Games and to be published by Interplay, Rubu Tribe was an ambitious proto-open world survival platformer for PlayStation 2. Control Muku and lead the rubu tribe to success as you explore the alien world, utilize the special skills of the other rubus, and direct the journey of the Utt, a gigantic creature that carries the rubus entire city on its back.
The game was right up my alley and I was super excited to get this hands-on time with an early build. You can hear me and Maxx (he’s the one filming) talking with someone from Outrage Games about the game’s features while I run around the demo area. Unfortunately the game was abandoned and Outrage went on to release Alter Echo. By way of Twitter I found out that Brad Muir (@MrMooEar) helped out on Rubu Tribe before it was canceled.
📺 About the Show 📺
It Came From The Collection -TV- is a supplemental series to my hands-on videos. These clips, commercials, and programs go live every Saturday morning to recapture the spirit of the legendary cartoon lineups and laser-focused marketing aimed at young minds. I’ve tried to clean up the picture and sound, and render them at 1080p for a more viewable presentation. ICFTC -TV- ! Part of a nutritious breakfast!
