Revolution [PS3/X360 – Cancelled]

Revolution was an open world shooter with elements from strategy titles. Development started in late 2005 at THQ’s Concrete Games and ended in January 2008. After that, the studio produced some assets for Saints Row 2 and was closed in February 2008.

During its development, Revolution saw entire style changes and other reorganisation. In the coming weeks we will show you parts of the game in its different stages.

Saints Row [Wii – Cancelled]

Thanks to Gone is Gone Blog we found out that Saint Row, a sandbox-style action game for the XBOX 360, was also planned to be released on the Wii. Developed by Californian Mass Media Inc, the game should had  the same gameplay of the 360 version, but with less graphic details. The game was cancelled, probably for  porting problems. A couple of screens from the Wii proto can be found at GiG, archived here for preservation purpose.

Speed Tribes [PSX PC – Cancelled]

Speed Tribes is a cancelled shooter / racing game that was in development  in 1997 / 1998 by Nemicron and it would have been published by THQ for the original Playstation and PC. The project was based off a comic of the same name (or was the comic created just to promote the game?), in which six tribes of riders fight to became the leaders of the city.

In the game, players would have chosen one of the tribes and used aero-bikes to combat against the rival riders in open arenas. Many multiplayer modes were planned, especially for the PC version.

Mark Vanco (an American cyberpunk designer and artist) was involved with the creation of the comic and the game’s world. In the end Speed Tribes was never finished for unkown reasons and Nemicron closed down after a while.

Thanks a lot to Martin Jajam for his help in preserving more screens from this lost project!
