The games we never got to see back in the N64 heydays still surface from time to time and you won't see me complaining about that.

At january 18th 2012 a new N64 prototype appeared on ebay, being no less than Wildwaters Extreme Kayak, a game that was in development at Looking Glass Studios, to be published by Ubi Soft. Unfortunately Looking Glass ran into problems due to a publisher of theirs having some financial difficulties, and that resulted in Looking Glass being shut down.

Looking Glass also had another N64 game in the works which received a lot more hype by the press, being Mini Racers which was supposed to be released by Nintendo.

Anyway the information available for Wildwaters is very sparse and only a handful of screenshots exists, so this one is a real gem.

The auction ended at no less than US$1600 at januray 28th 2012, I believe that's a record for an N64 proto sold on ebay. A PDF of the Auction page is available here.

No much is known about the prototype, but the seller has uploaded a single picture from the game.

For more information on Wildwaters, please visit our "unreleased games section", it has an article about Wildwaters.
