Maximum Surge was an FMV game being developed by Digital Pictures to be released on the Sega Saturn, 3DO, PC, and Mac platforms.
According to an interview done with Steve DeFrisco, Maximum Surge was almost fully completed, but was ultimately cancelled when Digital Pictures ran out of money and went out of business. The game was far enough along in development to receive a rating from the ESRB.
In Maximum Surge the main character is an unidentified soldier that must help Jo defeat the evil Drexel. Drexel is trying to replace all of humanity with evil cyborgs.
Maximum Surge had many big name stars at the time involved in filming the FMV scenes.
A demo for the PC version of Maximum Surge was released on a Digital Pictures demo compilation disk for Windows 95.

The plot of the movie involves a super computer being integrated into a video game network. The programmer who designed the games must then go into the virtual world and defeat the games or else there will be a world wide crash of information.
The five different games in which footage was pulled from are:
