In an interview with Polygon, the founder of Rockstar San Diego formerly known as Angel Studios talked about the project called Buggy Boogie.
Buggy Boogie was the project that was supposed to be released for Nintendo 64 but canceled by Shigeru Miyamoto.
Angel said he prepared for 45 days in the lead up to the meeting, adding that he was especially honored that Miyamoto was coming to him for the meeting instead of the other way around. But Miyamoto didn’t see much value in the project.
“Mr. Miyamoto came to the first meeting in San Diego. We had the honor that this motherfucker came to us. Mr. Miyamoto went and spent 10, 15 minutes look[ing] at it (the design doc), closed the big fucking book, got his hand behind [the book], pushed it to me, looked at me and said, ‘Diego, I don’t want this.’ My balls got frozen. I lost my legs. I said, ‘Fuck, fuck. I blew it.’ He said, ‘This is not what I want.’
I said, ‘What do you need, Mr. Miyamoto?’ He said, ‘I don’t want any game designs. [Let’s] spend the next three months working on the technology and making sure it feels good.’ […] He says, ‘You’re going to throw away most of that shit.’”
As you can see, his words are quite malicious. However, we must bear in mind that Angel Studios released other games for Nintendo 64, such as Major League Baseball Featuring Ken Griffey Jr. (1998), Slugfest by Ken Griffey Jr. (1999) and the port of Resident Evil 2 (1999 ).
