Nibris Teases 'E3 2009'

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

Honest-to-goodness Sadness info coming?

Man, E3 this year is set to be massive. Not only will we (hopefully) be getting some more info and debuts of some (hopefully) bangin' new Ninty Wii and DSi titles and third-party efforts, like two new games from High Voltage Software, the LA Convention Center promises to shed some light on the dark Sadness.

GoNintendo has uncovered Polish developer Nibris' official YouTube profile, which holds numerous concept art video slideshows for the game and also a tantilizing tidbit buried in the comments section:

"E3 2009."

Sadness was one of the first original horror titles announced for the sleek white box, but not a single screenshot has actually been released of the game, plopping it in the vaporware hall of fame until further notice. As you can see in the screenshot gallery below, there are more pictures of someone playing the game than the actual game itself.

According to the developer's Web site, Sadness is:

"not the game of the action. If you're counting on shooting, litres of blood and piles of dead bodies then unfortunately you won't find this here. We are preparing for a mood which will not leave you till the very end of the game. An irregular scenario decides on such issues as schizophrenia or narcolepsy. Apart from an extremely complex and rich-in-the-shocking-factor scenario, the power of our production is innovative use of the Wii controller."

Sounds pretty lofty, and kinda emo too. I'd love to play another game in the vein of Eternal Darkness, but it remains to be seen. As a matter of fact, everything about Sadness remains to be seen.

I love the concept of vaporware, it's brilliant. It's not quite the infamous DNF but this serious the best Wii vaporware. I think it's got a small chance of appearing at E3 2009.

I've been wanting to see this game since I first read about it. I love insanity plots. >:3

I really hope this sees the light of day...and unlike Fatal Frame IV and Disaster (as of now) I'd really like it to make it stateside. Thanks.

The only way I'd be interested if it comes with the woman demonstrating the game in the ad pics.

Are you suggesting that ^ wasn't the automatic deal? My interest is suddenly waning!



Dume said:

I thought this dropped off the radar AGES ago.

Too bad, I was interested three years ago. Sorry, Nibris.

I lost interest in this title, and well no apologies from me Nibris you knew this would happen.

By now I'm convinced that Nibris is just some troll pretending to make games and hyping everyone up.
