Baby Boom is a cancelled 1994 puzzle Sega Genesis video game developed by Sega Technical Institute (rumored) and published by Sega.[1] The game is set on New Year's Eve 1999. The game was shown at the 1994 European Computer Trade Show and was scheduled for December 1994 release but was cancelled for unknown reasons.

Three prototype builds of the game were leaked in the Hidden Palace forums by drx on February 23rd, 2008. In August 2015, more information of the game was found in an eBay auction.[2]

The prototype can easily be found online. Notable errors include misspellings of "they" in the intro and a strange graphical glitch that all emulators have.[3]
