Sadness Canned?

Posted by Sammy Barker

Whilst browsing the wonderful world of the Internet I found an email from "FrontLine Studios" that seems to leave survival horror title Sadness without a developer.

The email conversation went as follows:

Dear Frontline Studios,

NIBRIS claims that you are programming the game called Sadness for the Nintendo Wii. Most of us believe that this game is nothing but a scam - a big joke that NIBRIS is trying to pull over on us. The artwork and concept of the game seem too good to be true, and the lack of information on it give us the conclusion that the game is actually not in development at all and is just to gain attention from Nintendo consumers. I was just wondering if you can confirm that you are programming the game Sadness for NIBRIS and can for a fact say that the game is not fake. Thanks for your time!



Prompting a response from Frontline:

Hello Ryan,

I can confirm that FRONTLINE is no longer interested in developing Sadness game based on Nibris' concept, and also Nibris is not authorized to claim anything on behalf of FRONTLINE.

Best regards,

Marcin Machel

After much speculation over the actual status of the black and white survival horror game this just seems to be another setback. When (or whether) this game will actually ever see the light of day is to be determined - but don't count on it being soon.

I really don't understand the big deal about htis. NOTHING has been shown and NOTHING is known about it. We were simply shown a black and white trailer of a woman holding a Wii remote, playing a game.

It's no indication the game was intended to be played in black and white. Nor does it show what to expect from the game.

I agree mate, people just liked the romance of an indie developing coming up with a good game - sad thing is, we saw this coming from the site, it was never actually gonna be any good

Well it's not even a "game" of any sorts yet is it? It's just a concept. The concept IS that it will be black and white. Apparently they hired psychologists or something because it's all meant to delve into paranoia.

I guess the hype bubble did tend to explode a little - but that trailer was bloody good. Admit it
