Games Workshop has more “forgotten IPs” for game use, says Cyanide

Wednesday, 29th April 2009 09:37 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Blood Bowl developer Cyanide has told Eurogamer that its relationship with Games Workshop may continue that’s to its bursting IP vault.

“If Games Workshop continues to trust us, then sure, why not,” said Cyanide’s Antoine Villepreux. “They have got other ‘forgotten’ IPs that we think deserve videogame adaptations.”

Intriguing. Space Hulk, please.

    Dark Future would be awesome as a videogame.

    I’m with Gaz on this one. A decent Dark Future game would be fantastic.

    I always thought Paranoia had the makings of a good game too. An Oblivion/Fallout style game would lend itself well to the Paranoia universe.

    Space Hulk’s been done a few times, many years ago. The first one was even quite good, had a bit of an x-com vibe to it.

    Agreed on Dark Future, that would make an excellent game. We almost have that in the form of Borderlands.

    Necromunda would be neat, too.

    I loved the old Space Hulk game.

    “There are hundreds of them!”

    Ludicrously difficult though.

    Revolting… agree. Necromunda would be great. I’d like to see them think about it a little more, and avoid making it a simple turn based affair. There’s room for online, MMO style guild elements there. Character and squad development without the grind. PVE environments and PVP gameplay… oooh lovely.

    Rogue Trader would be great too… a great big mish mash of various genres. A great big open roleplaying universe with Elite style space trading and faction based missions, with planet side stuff combining the best eliments of Bethesda’s RPGs with some decent squad building, delving either into squad-based tactical shootery stuff or the more obvious Dawn of War RTS shenanigans. It would be the ultimate all-encompassing game, and it wouldn’t work at all because there would just be too much stuff in it, and it would end up trying to shoe-horn everything in at the cost of everything becoming completely two dimensional and pointless, like Spore. Still fun to daydream about though. :)

    I heard they might be re-releasing the Space Hulk board game this year. So, there’s that.

    Just *anything* from the 40 K universe that isn’t a fucking RTS. Eldar Craftworld RPG, please!

    Although what happened to the 3rd person WH40K Space Marine game, been awful quiet on that front ???
