Nihilistic Software demo reel shows a glimpse of StarCraft: Ghost

Saturday, 2nd March 2013 16:26 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Before making the transition from retail to downloadable and mobile titles, Nihilistic Software was working on various titles for PS3 and Xbox 360, and a God of War Home space, according to a LinkedIn resume.

Mike Parsons’ resume lists Deep Rift, an underwater shooter for PS3 and Xbox 360; an isometric shooter called Alien Hunters for PS3 and 360; and a game called Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

A demo reel from the senior VFX artist, posted below, also shows some of the has a bit of the halted project Starcraft: Ghost near the end.

The firm’s original intent was to release the Blizzard title on GameCube, PS2, and Xbox by late 2003 before consistent delays saw team dropping the project during Q4 2004.

Thanks, Siliconera.

    They wanted to release the game by late 2003 on ps3? Looks like it got cancelled, because they couldn’t persuade Sony to release the PS3 a few years earlier :-)

    That Sony were even giving this company something GoW related is remarkable, albeit a Home space.

    I wonder why Sony continuously kept working with this company, Resistance, Move Heroes and Canned projects. I feel nothing but pity for Nihilistic, i feel like they were given no chance to develop something new, they were just a cheap licenced developer that publishers took advantage of.
