Rayman 2: Back to School (fan project)

A Gameshark magazine shows that this was indeed a game, but there are no information about the game yet.

OK now, this is either really cool OR a really elaborate prank based on the recent discoveries of the Rayman 2 engine:



Yes, gameplay from Rayman 2: Back to School with Picture City-like environments and an educational purpose. Supposedly GameStar dug that up... but why April 1st of all the dates? 😳🤯

It looks like it has Picture City in 3D. This is interesting. Also, a while back, I found a forum dedicated to this game: viewtopic.php?t=5631

Oh dear God…

I'm thinking prank, since why would a real trailer show so many wrong answers? It's very well done though, if it is.

EDIT: Also, remember Robin was working on creating new level geometry for Rayman 2 before there was ever an engine leak :bad:

It turns out it was fake after all, it was all a mod: https://twitter.com/RobinRayman/status/ ... 9431072771

This message said something different about an hour ago :mefiant:

Well, it delights me way more that members of the community were able to make something like this, than yet another scrapped game discovery would have! :D

Thanks for unearthing this topic Arnold, I have moved the latest posts here.

It did indeed look a lot like a hoax, and like hoodlumsworld pointed out, the recent leak of the Rayman 2 engine was too much of a coincidence, but it is nonetheless very impressive and incredibly promising for future fan projects. Great work here. :D

Here's the real trailer with some extra scenes and without VHS-ification:

So should this be moved to fanworks now I wonder?

Maybe, but not the whole topic because this listing did exist. Anyways, I fell for it. :oops: I like how it looks, though.
Actually, maybe. Because how would someone do it without it being confusing. Maybe this could be a duel topic for the real listing and the fan game. :?:

This prank was made so good that I have believed it was real, at first I thought it was a joke because of the VHS effect not being convincing for me, and why releasing such a thing on April 1st?
But when I have seen the original levels and knowing that such things were not possible through modding I thought it was official! :lol:

MaeDaGoof also did a Twitch live where she showed more details about the game and the editor he uses:

All right, since this appears to be more than a joke but an actual fan project, I have moved the posts (again) to a new topic in the fanworks section (you are reading it right now). The rest of the Rayman 2: Back to School-related messages can be found in the original topic here.

Also, not sure how long Twitch keeps videos online, so you can also watch DoomsMae/MaeDaGoof's video here:

Finally uploaded a video of my Picture City level that wasn't just a part of the B2S trailer:
