GameScares.com: Here I'm listing five of the most regretfully canceled scary video games, when I think of some of the trash that gets released and see the potential with the games in this list it makes me pretty angry.
Not sure how you can have a top 5 list when the games never come out, but it was an interesting read nonetheless.
RedWood Falls looked good. Was Campfire going to have live action cutscenes? "I noticed a return of mass top 5 articles lately" I like them. They often remind about games that I had forgotten about.
Possession, a game that had you as a zombie lord attacking a city as a kind of reversed L4D, wasn't on the list?
what about Demonik? surely that was KINDA a scary game.
I noticed a return of mass top 5 articles lately. I thought we got rid of those for good
We? And whats wrong if its 3,5,10, or 100? What would be the best number for a list and why.
yeah i personally love Top X lists
Kinda wish they wouldnt tell us or remind us of games that are canceled... now i want a couple of those to come out and they never will :(
John Carpenter was working on a horror game for the 360/PS3/PC after The Thing 2 was cancelled but I think his newer project was as well, shame. Didn't Midway have one that was basically L4D meets Stranglehold? That premise could have been cool but I missed the footage before it was taken down.
A Brilliant Mind...
From what I had seen I thought redwood falls and asylum should have been completed and released, they looked promising. Though I know why campfire(the worst on the list) was canned and I don't blame them, it looked too gimmicky and un-scary for my taste but that is just my opinion. I have been a fan of the survival horror genre since resident evil 1 was released on the ps1 many years ago, since then I have enjoyed quite a few survival horror games over the years and redwood falls and asylum definitely had potential and would have more than likely spawned sequels. Maybe one day those 2 will be completed and released, which would be nice.
I had completely forgotten about Redwood Falls, it's a shame to hear about its demise, such a shame as the game looked promising, especially its lighting, so realistic, would have have contributed to some "Is anyone there?" Moments in the forests. I loved the whole, It's not dead unless you dispose of it gameplay element going on.
Redwood Falls looked very promising. But as we all know some high selling game franchises get first priority. This game was bought then dropped. As a developer, I would be rather disappointed to sell something that I spent hours on. To only for it be dropped. I can not touch it. Because I sold the rights to do so.
Thanks for the comments guys, great to see genuine appreciation for Redwood Falls, who knows? One day it might still happen...
