While many unreleased games never get to see the light of day beyond blurry screenshots in old magazines of days past, Cooly Skunk (released in the US under the title Punky Skunk) is one of the few games that holds the unique distinction of having been cancelled several times before ultimately ending up released on a completely different platform than it started off on. Initially released on November 1, 1996 in Japan for the original PlayStation, Cooly Skunk was, for lack of a better term, a relative stinker that didn’t generate much buzz around release. Even the game’s lack of a real instruction manual, which instead was a simple two-page sheet of paper, hints at a troubled development that was perhaps rushed out the door sooner than it could be given the proper care that all the years of work behind it deserved.
