Primal Rage, one of the most graphic and repulsive games of it's time had a sequel being developed. Unfortunately, the sequel was cancelled by Atari and only seen the light of day during a test held at Golf Land arcade in Sunnyvale, California.


Although the game was never released, it's story was later adapted into a novel called Primal Rage: The Avatars written by John Vornholt.
The book's plot tells about what happened to the dinosaur gods 65 million years ago, and then moves into the main story of the gods' reign on Urth renewed, but then the beast Necrosan appears. The book focuses as well on fleshing out the world of Primal Rage, and does so by bringing "the Avatars" to the forefront of the story, they being the humans chosen by their respective gods to be their shamans or other titles of nobility.
Fortunately, a copy of an early prototype has been found after being in storage for 14 years and some off screen footage has been recorded.
