[size=140]9 Lives is a unique collection of footage from games planned for release on the Atari Jaguar that has been converted into Cinepak for play on your Atari Jaguar CD. From the comic book styled fighter Lobo to the all action shoot Ďem up Livewire, all these games represent a great example of what could have been. Some of these games are rumoured to exist in real form, so who knows there might be more lives left in big cat yet![/size]

Just received my copy of 9 lives today and it's awesome. The quality is like that of an official release. Would be nice if some of those games would be released. Actually all of them would have been great additions to the jag library. Thanks for a job well done and it's for charity. A win win :113:

That was really quick, I was shocked when I got the mail today.

That would be so awesome if you could get any of those released.

I'm saving the bonus cd for tomorrow. I like to make new stuff last, lol. I'll post what I think when I check it out. thanks again

Quality and design is very nice. Had a quite play up to the beginning of Virtuoso and like what I saw. Are the videos longer than the you tube upload you did?

Glad I picked this up.

If there is anything us fans can do to help get those couple released let us know!

I watched this last night and really enjoyed it. It's a great look at would could have been and cool to be able to watch it on the Jag! I listened to the bonus CD a bit too. Some I recognised but others I didn't so a track list would be great.

Awesome job on this Laird, now I just want some of these games to turn up  :63:

The 9 Lives: Collectors Edition is now sold out.

I still have 3 copies that I am waiting for people to pay for, if these are still unpaid by next weekend (April 4th) then they will be donated to the charity auction at ROM!

Would be great to hear some more feedback on what you all think of it!

You know, I read this entire topic again a day or so ago and it saddens me that I will likely never get the CD unit but also that you are still waiting for feedback. This is a rare thing, 9 lives, and whilst one or two have commented, a little detail would be nice. Even for me, I am still interested in how this has gone down. :)

Yep would still be nice to hear what people think of it.

Although the numbered Collector's Editions have sold out I still have the standard version available for anybody who wants one.

OK, this has been Atari Jaguar weekend for me so, I got to test out 9 Lives! This is nicely done, Laird! Good job!  It's really sad to see all the missed opportunities with the Jaguar.  The mix of games demonstrated is pretty interesting.  Livewire, Death Match, and Power Slide look really cool.  I was laughing with the Nerf game. Before watching the video I was wondering if the game was based on the toys and, sure enough!  ;)
