Orchid [XBOX/PS2 – Cancelled]

Orchid [XBOX/PS2 – Cancelled]

Orchid was an Action Adventure / Beat ’em Up that was in development by Argonaut Games and would have been published by Namco for the original Xbox and  Playstation 2. The project started with a cell shaded  graphic design and the gameplay was pretty nice from what we can see in the videos below, but two months before the game was cancelled the developers were asked to make it look more “realistic”. The whole team worked a lot and tried their best to change the game, but unfortunatly in the end Orchid was never released.

Thanks a lot to Franck for the contribution!

    Two months before release?!?! That is insanity, why not release the dam thing and make a new game if you don’t like the one you got.

      Because often it’s a risk to release a game that could not sell enough: they could lose more money releasing it (think about the marketing, the distribution, creation of the phisical discs, etc.) than to not releasing the game. Sad but true :(

    Orchid is a third-person 3D action title starring an athletic redhead who happens to be suffering from amnesia. After awakening from a coma in the local orphanage, the young girl finds herself evading a group of soldiers attempting to capture her for reasons unknown. After escaping to New York City, she joins a ragtag group of freedom fighters looking to put an end to the corporate army that rules over the city with an iron fist. The story line is gradually revealed in an estimated hour’s worth of cinematic cut-scenes voiced by professional actors.

    Featuring character designs by artist Tony Daniel, Orchid features a distinctive visual style that attempts to re-create the attitude and artwork found in comic books. Players can freely go wherever they want to in this futuristic 3D world as they prepare to fight numerous soldiers bent on stopping the resistance group once and for all. Orchid may not remember her past, but there’s more to her than meets the eye: not only can she use a variety of acrobatic kicks and punches on her foes, but she can also transform herself into different monsters. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
