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:
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.
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.
