In 2006 Torus Games worked on a small PSP tech demo for a game based on the Full Metal Alchemist manga / anime, probably to pitch a full project. FMA is an ongoing Japanese series, set in a fictional universe in which alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques. In 2006 Funimation licensed the franchise to create a new series of Fullmetal Alchemist related video games to be published by Destineer Publishing in the United States. [Info from Wikipedia]
It’s possible that Torus’ tech demo was shown to Destineer, but for some reasons it never evolved into a real game. A FMA game for the PlayStation Portable titled “Fullmetal Alchemist: Senka wo Takuseshi Mono” was later developed by Namco Bandai and released in Japan on October 2009.
