The Crimson Skies people are behind it so I doubt it will be a bad game given their track record at FASA. It's all on Capcom to market the game.

the article title is pretty misleading. The game was produced about 20 years go but when the super nintendo released their idea for the game sort of become obselete so they put it away and it got lost in what they say a magnet accident. They havent been working on it for 20 years they just decided to bring the idea back from 20 years ago.

Lack of intelligence confirmed.

on topic: I read the article and it's pretty neat that a game from 20 years ago that was never released is getting another chance on modern day systems.

In all fairness, you guys should read Bear McCreary's blog (the person who does the game's soundtrack).

Dark Void has NOT been in development for 20 years, they're just trying to rope in old-school Capcom fans by creating this fake backstory to the game. All for the better, since it seems to have convinced more than one person that this whole thing is true...

Dark Void Zero is the product of 2009's April Fool's Day joke on Capcom Unity, where Bear McCreary wanted to redo the title screen's music in 8-bit. That spawned an 8-bit game for DSi (Dark Void Zero).

Edit: Bear says it in one of the comments mid-way on this page.

This game looks good.
I'll play it.

this sounds like a definate flop to me.
Their videos look rough at best.
The story too incoherent with the designs and plain cliche.

Why does everyone think that the more time you spend making a game makes it better?

With the size of companies and all the people working on such a game, it's simply inexcusable.
Either they are a victim of insane circumstance or simply have no clue as how to make the game good.

I betcha the game designer got too caught up in the concept of the Bermuda triangle that he added too much and has been pulling his hair out trying to make it all "work" for the player.

I just want to point out that the story may not be true at all, it's the backstory for Dark Void Zero on the DSiware. It's probably made up.

EDIT: What makes it even funnier is that this posted under PS3 and 360 but not DS when the story is about the DS game, not the PS3/360 game.

SpoonyRedMage3223d ago (Edited 3223d ago )

How am I pwned, I've seen the trailer for it, it doesn't mean it's true. It's a backstory for the game and considering that they have you blow dust from a NES cartridge indicates that the game is just a throwback.

EDIT: Unless you thought I was saying you made it up? I wasn't. I was saying Capcom made it up.

tordavis3223d ago (Edited 3223d ago )

Duly noted. I thought you were saying we made it up so I linked the story on Capcom's site.

SpoonyRedMage is not an average fanboy he actually knows what he is talking about.

And Yes Capcom made up the back story.

Hahaha, you fell for 'the Matt Hazzard marketing trick'.
