We could only wish we were playing this right now... maybe...
This game was never completed and/or given a public release.
As a result of this, keep in mind that the developers might have used or deleted some of the content featured here, had the game actually reached store shelves.

The SNES SpellCraft is a port of the MS-DOS game of the same name, which was apparently cancelled before it was released. However, a ROM exists and is in relatively complete shape.

Developer Credit

The beginning of the ROM has a bit of credit text from the developers:

Secret Message #2
I would like to take a minute and thank Katie G for all the sacrifices she has made for me. I am really grateful you allowed me to peruse my dreams and leave after 5 years together. Your unselfishness can never be repaid, but I want you to know I'm sorry for what I put you through. I still love you. I hope you and Paul have a great life together and a wonderful marriage, if it happens.

Message #3

This is Bonnie M, the woman I should of married. But, because of my stupidity and fear of commitment, I have lost her forever.
Bonnie, you are the greatest woman I've ever dated. Best of friends, what more could I want? I'm again sorry for what I've done to us and will regret it the rest of my life.
I hate making mistakes!
I love you Bonnie!
