/ Rare Gamer | Savannah


As the title implies, this African Safari on the Serengeti was developed at Rare as a prototype in 2006 for the Xbox 360. In Savannah, players were tasked with rearing a lion cub through adolescence, imparting survival skills and training it to thrive amongst the life in the wild. With development coinciding with that of the Kinect, Rare initially planned to design the title around the up-and-coming device from Microsoft. While the wildlife populating Savannah looked advanced for its time, the project existed as a prototype only, and the expedition was canceled after a year in development.
