We finally have visual of what the first game concept of what Spyro's Kingdom looked like.

heliosx.com/spyro/index.html

Apparently, this game was originally going to be a MMORPG, in the Legend of Spyro-themed universe. The Portal of Power is mentioned, and we were going to have to use toys to play as our dragon characters in the game world. And just like Spyro's Universe, we customize our lairs. This game idea was proposed to Activision, but it was rejected.

It would have been nice if they made this and Skylanders.

Is this even official? It looks like something from Spore and it wouldn't be the first time Bionicle made a Fangame with it... I swear this seems like a Mad Hatter Day prank or something.

That's what proposals do. They present to the game company the idea of a game that could give the company an idea.

This actually looks interesting. I have a feeling that if it weren't Activision, it could have possibly been approved.

... what the... hu?...I kind of agree with weremagnus sadly.... it is an interesting game to get warped around, but I'm not to sure if it's very spyro like looks like a random dragon game actually XD;, as well as the art being professional it seems rather jumbled around and not to eh. MMORPG's I can't really wrap my finger around too much even if it was for spyro. But it was a pretty nice idea none the less I suppose.

It has mini-games, but other than that, nothing else to do.

Would be cool if it had some kinda of quests to do...

Just needs more stuff to do.

True, true. Most likely have to wait for the Giants to come out.

Wasn't on it for a week, took me 20 minutes to find where to unlock my last skylanders. (didn't see the Club House)

So they had the original concept on the portal of power in order to customize one's character. okay, but the odd thing is that they still mention Ignitus in this one. Didn't he become the next chronicler in DoTD? shouldn't there be a new fire guardian or something. Still, Activision had some bold Ideas. Too bad they cancelled it though

...Why didn't this journal show up in my inbox?! This sounds great! Although, in my opinion, humans kinda break the whole 'alien world' aesthetic, where ladybugs, dragonflies and potentially BEES are larger than the human head, as the Valley of Avalar level dictates. In other words, it's a world where evolution ran backward and gave animals and Dragons sentience, something I prefer, to be honest.

On the other hand, it does kinda make sense. Malefor is dead, leaving the Dragon Realms clean of evil for at least a couple decades. Sierra probably wasn't able to write another story in that universe, seeing as Malefor really IS dead and, if he was only trapped, there was no way anyone would be able to go to the center of the planet and survive long enough to get Malefor outta there. Hence, why the Spyro we know was sent over to Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford at Toys for Bob, which stirred up quite the controversy here in the fandom, but I shan't dwell on that. Then humans, who have definitely taken their sweet time to GET there, show up and start colonizing the Dragon Realms, which should have caused quite the outrage from the inhabitants, Cheetahs especially (given that they parallel the Native Americans, in a sense.). The Dragons are ordered to arms by the Guardians or whoever is in charge at this point to drive out the human invaders. Thus, the main questline of Spyro's Kingdom begins.

Skylanders is Spyro's Kingdom successor, and it would seem that it will continue with Spyro for a while.

Well okay I guess. Skylanders was actually kinda fun but I worry of Giants being too much of the same. We get Kaos once again, and we know the kind of stuff he'll say (DOOOOOOOOOMED something of DOOOOOOOM!!!).
