Aright, you have to have been born in the 80s or 90s to even vibe with this one, but back in the day, there was a little franchise called Gex, and Gex was legit. Gex was a little Gecko that was starring in its own games from 1995 to 1999. The gecko came courtesy of Crystal Dynamics and Eidos, who you might know as gaming-smiths behind Hitman.

Back then, the Gex franchise sold 15 million copies, before it suddenly disappeared after Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko. Sure, nowadays, it sounds like a crappy franchise about a gecko, but, for one, think about what Ratchet & Clank sounds like on paper, and, for another back then... people loved Gex, and now... YouTuber justz00t found a little blast from the past: A never before seen demo of Gex Jr.

Gex Jr Demo Found

The demo is super short, but still includes the heavy pop-culture references style that the franchise was known for: Gex Jr references Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and The Empire Strikes Back, and I feel like it's the type of humor that would do well in this day and age.

Currently, the franchise is owned by SquareEnix, who filed a trademark for Gex in late 2021, so there is reason to believe that this demo didn't appear without reason: Maybe Gex is making a comeback. Given the right dressing, there is no reason why this couldn't be a hit like Ratchet & Clank.
