Hardcore Gamer: Newly-unearthed images released today show that it was actually quite far in development and quite awesome.
Ww, they were actually going the FMV route? Why did they cancel this!?
I'm guessing lighting may have looked a little weird. It sounds like it would be difficult to do shadow casting on geometry that doesn't exist? I would love to see how they would do it. :)
actually with todays shaders thats pretty easy to do... shadow casting on 2d planes with fake bumps for the sahdows to interact with... and a 3dimensional look.. in fact imagine if they used kinnect with a depth sensor to create a normal map for depth and displacement map... would be an interesting appraoch... but i prefer the 3d
Why would anyone cancel this?! D:
I think a full FMV Mortal Kombat can be done with great success. Especially with the assets these new consoles (and pc) possess. If anything Boon should really think about it.
This looks awesome. Not sure what FMV is tho... ? No worries I know now. This looked pretty cool
WTF?! why did they cancel it D:?!!
what would have been really cool and retro.
I would have bought and played the heck out of this game! I miss the old FMV digitized characters they used to use!
I agree with the FMV characters. It would of been interesting to see how that style would looked on PS1-PS3.
How does Rambo gets to be made but not this... worlds to sort itself out.
Put this on KickStarter, I will put money on this project. This would be awesome...I also would love to see another Super Mario World done with HD sprites
I may be wrong, but isn't the animation super limited by digitized characters? Like, they can only do whatever motions were captured. No smooth linking to other moves, cancels, dynamic animations on blocks etc. It would look as robotic as the original and that wouldn't stack up these days.
Gove it that retro feel gamers are familiar with. More of a throwback fan service, which I wouldve loved to play, but unfortunate its cancelled.
God, this is so unfortunate
This would have been excellent for a mature gamer like me. All my PS4 need is a MK trilogy and I'd be set with BF4, MLB, & DC.
Add it to the list of, *This is why you can't have nice things* I was really looking forward to this.
