This thread is for both great cancelled titles and unknown hidden games or gems.

I will keep updating, first i found this better pitch of SilenthillsShatteredMemories,
called SHCold Heart.
Konami should have made it after SM, instead of Downpour.

Full pitch documents and details,

3rd is great looking RavenBlade by Retro, who canned it for MetroidPrime.
Not that i complain, but would have preferred it over MPrime2&3.

Nah check trailer its Dead to rights.

That Prey2 looked better than all Toddhoward games, massseffect and recent Prey reboot.
More polished and better looking. And Bethesda canned it for QA. BULLSHIT.

HUMANHEAD is really talented,one of the best in industry.
They made another one of my fav gem, ignored in time, like Wheeloftime, called Rune
Great action adventure, after Prey 2 demise they announced to be working on Rune2.
No sign yet.
As they are more busy with handling contracts.
They did work on BSinfinite.

Rune in action

They also worked on this

Extermination PS2, another of my fav lost in time.
It did alot of good stuff in Bmovie type flavor.

Still enjoyable.

That Snake Plissken game wasn’t made into Dead to Rights if the description of the video is to be believed. Rather, the game demo was build using assets FROM Dead to Rights.

What about this one that I was anticipating like no other back in the late 90’s early 2000’s?

It was during the decline of adventure games sales, and the project later became what is today WOW.

Then of course there is Starcraft Ghost, that actually had some gameplay:

     

Ignorance + Poverty = Crime, Ignorance + Wealth = Corruption, Ignorance + Freedom = Chaos, Ignorance + Authority = Tyranny, Ignorance + Religion = Terrorism
Replace Ignorance with Knowledge:
Knowledge + Poverty = Satisfaction, Knowledge + Wealth = Civilization, Knowledge + Freedom = Creativity, Knowledge + Authority = Justice, Knowledge + Religion = Integrity

Killing Day from Ubi.

Rune was awesome Thumbs Up  now that’s a game that could use a remake

Speaking of Sony press conf, remember that 8 days game by Sony London:

Cancelled and the team was relegated to work on casual stuff, I think

Another was This is Vegas, it seemed pretty complete

Starcraft was really far along, more polished footage from IGN

And that warcraft title, damn awesome, another quite done title never finisihed.
I dont know, sunk cost is sunk cost, you can only make money on these.
Animations and production on that Warcraft AG looks top stuff.
Never understand the reasons for such cancellations.

Yes KillingDay was good looking.
But to this day, i waited for 8days and Getaway sequel.
Getaway1 was always better than any GTA for me.

8days still look better than UC1 or Resistance series.
They could have made it episodic, since all days were set in different scenarios.

Covering mechanics and other footage

A must read to what Yoshida did to Teamlondon.
Major blow to relegate them from gritty action stuff to casual Eyetoy shit.
I hope yosp get his senses back and get away from Lastofus lookalikes portfolio to
restart it with same old team, because from this interview and vids above, it could have been killer hardboiled action IP for Sony.

Then there was Starwars 1313, i know Amyhennig will do great but still neither Frotbite nor
Naughtydog engine could top this, atleast not untill SavageStarlight becomes reality.

Full E3 demo, with some extra footage

If this doesnt hurt you enough, imagine these graphics and check out these killer artworks

In an alternate world, we cant even get existing games on new platforms.

With 3 companies involved they probably don’t see the cost benefit - even though Night Dive would be doing the leg work WB has to share any revenue now between potentially 4 companies.. for a game for a niche market…

http://www.kotaku.com.au/2015/02/the-sad-story-behind-a-dead-pc-game-that-cant-come-back/

Wow, its more complex than i thought, but hatsoff to Nightdive for pushing the matter.
