Lost in Time: Toy Commander

More imagination than you can shake a cyborg teddy bear at

The more modern games get, the less likely they are to be lost and gone forever. Or, so one would think. Strange things happen in the video game industry, and companies come and go all the time. Nowhere was this sentiment more prevalent than during the Dreamcast era.
