PS3 Episodic Comedy 'Rat Race' Comes Back From The Dead

TrueGameHeadz writes:
"It's not often that a game comes back from being canceled, but it looks like that's exactly what's happened for the episodic comedy game "Rat Race." The game, which was announced in late 2007, quietly faded into obscurity when the president of Sony's Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, was quoted as saying it was canceled at last year's E3. However, "Rat Race," which is being developed by Super-Ego Games, may be about to come back to life. Last week I spoke with Bo Lasater, one of Super-Ego's co-founders, and asked him whether or not "Rat Race" was dead, and he responded with, "Is Rat Race dead? No, it is not dead. Is it 100% alive? Maybe the patient is coming out of a coma."

So, if one of Sony's studio presidents declares your game dead, and you say it's just in a coma… where do things really stand? In terms of "Rat Race"'s future, things look pretty good, so much..."

Should have stayed dead imo. Focus resources on more promising games

What makes you think this game doesn't look promising? Because it looks a little different? Because you dont have to kill anything in it? Because it tries something new? Because it tries to be funny?

Looks rubbish.

Even if it manages to work for an American audience, it will be lost on 90% of the world most likely. Comedy is like that - and a videogame effort is unlikely to become a phenomenon around the world. If you look at the trailer... well let's just say the reason you laugh is not because it's funny.
