So listen. Game is Shadowrun for the SNES. I used to play it as a kid, have beaten it a myriad of different ways... even now going on the 20th year since it was released I still get the game out and play through it from time to time when a new method for beating it comes to mind. I've even played the Japanese version through.
Why do I keep playing it? Well...
In the game manual there is a screen shot of the character's spell list and on that list is the spell CHAOS. (http://preview.tinyurl.com/9w6u8uz
Now, CHAOS does not appear on page 24 of the manual where all of the spells are listed... just in the screen shot. (http://preview.tinyurl.com/8lam84s
Full manual is here, sorry for how low quality it is: http://preview.tinyurl.com/8t5vokg
Anyway, I'm at the point where I'm ready to write this off as not existing in the game. The screenshot was from a beta version, or it was concept art and not in-game, whatever. I've tried emailing the original developers, scoured the Internet... never found so much as a clue.
You may be wondering why all the trouble? Well, in the game whenever you get a spell the guy who gives them to you gives you a hint as to what you'll need to get the next spell from him. And after you get all the spells (listed on page 24) he says something cryptic. Doesn't quite say "I'm all out of spells" but doesn't quite say "I have another one for you" - Just cryptic. I'm sorry but I can't remember the precise language, I'm going to start playing the game through to get a screen cap of it but it takes a fairly long amount of time to get there so for now you'll just have to take my word for it.
One other reason I suspect it may exist? In the manual there is an entry for a ZIP GUN... but it's not really "available" - In order to get it, you must get to the 2nd stage without picking up a gun, which is really kind of a pain in the ass. Anyway, what I'm saying is that this was an "easter egg" we first discovered after playing the game for about 5 years, and we eventually found it in the game. So, continuing to look for CHAOS kind of came naturally.
Any help that this community could provide to helping me with the mystery would be greatly appreciated.
