Leaked footage of Team Bondi's Whore of the Orient recently surfaced on VideoGamer.com, courtesy of a "trusted source." The gameplay video reveals some awkward fighting, some brisk running, and a lot of hiding behind boxes.
Whore of the Orient, described by Team Bondi founder Brendan McNamara as "one of the great untold stories of the 20th century," was first announced way back through the mists of time, or November 2011, to be more specific. This was after the bankrupt developer was picked up by Kennedy Miller Mitchell, a production company from Sydney. The new IP was dropped by publisher Warner Bros. last year, but before it was ditched, rumors pointed to a 2015 release.
No publisher has been attached to the struggling title, though KMM are believed to still be looking for one. Despite the bad press, bankruptcy, loss of a publisher, and the recent alleged lay-offs, the Australian government awarded the project $200,000 from the New South Wales' Interactive Media Fund.
Whore of the Orient is being developed for next-gen consoles and PC, but of course no release date has been set.
