Acclaim creative bod and Gaikai co-founder Dave Perry has spoken to Eurogamer about his multi-million-dollar game Plague, which Atari canned amid financial woes roughly three years ago.
"It was going to be called Plague," Perry told Eurogamer. "It was a really big idea: lots of new hooks - kind of me. I wanted to get back to old Shiny where it was always a surprise and lots of new hooks and things you'd never seen before."
"The idea was you could fire nano-weapons into things that would actually generate objects and delete objects in real-time. It was pretty neat. I was working with a book author, and we were going to get a movie made. It was a big deal.
"But it was a little too big for Atari," he added. "They weren't ready for that."
