What happened to Nintendo's canceled Project H.A.M.M.E.R.

Unseen64 is a great source for cancelled video game content, and this exposé on Nintendo's canceled Project H.A.M.M.E.R. may be its best work yet. The doomed game went through development hell, with management and developers bu...

Xbox One's Phantom Dust no longer in active development

DC Comics-themed MOBA Infinite Crisis closing in August

Hellraid totally isn't cancelled

When a game is announced to be “on hold” or “on hiatus,” we usually just take that to mean it has been cancelled. Prey 2 was put “on hold,” and that still breaks my small, withered heart. I’m able t...

Greed Monger cancelled after raising $100k

Here’s a fun game dev fact for you: making an MMO is a long, hard, and expensive task that will generally end in failure and misery for everyone involved. If huge companies like BioWare can screw it up, it’s probably not a good ...

Microsoft-canceled Xbox One Phantom Dust reboot leaked, looks alright

Microsoft announced a reboot of a 10-year-old Xbox cult-classic, Phantom Dust, at its E3 conference last year. This raised a lot of "huh?" and a lot of "uh, ok" (from me included) but people who played the original were excited as hell. Wel...

Today is Canada day. And since "Canada" sounds kind of, sort of like "Kaneda," the hero of Otomo Katsuhiro's groundbreaking cyberpunk manga-turned-anime Akira, that's reason enough for me to put on my favorite red jacket and talk about one of his favorite pieces of media ever... Japanese, Canadian, or otherwise.   read
