According to Unseen64.com Odema and the Book of Magic was intended to be a “kiddy Metal Slug” title. Odema was allegedly planned to feature 7 worlds with multiple paths and 30 different enemies (including 14 bosses). Namdoo is credited as the developers of Odema.
As can be seen in the video by Eli above, while quite early, Odema was impressive in the current form. In the video you can check out a bit more information on exactly how far along in development the game reached before cancellation.
What does the future hold for Odema
