Polish developer Nibris has updated its YouTube page with a statement saying that it will appear at E3 this year.

Funnily enough, it said the same thing about GDC 08 and never showed up. This caused the company to be accused of developing “vapourware” instead of an actual game.

Not so, said Sadness’ ex-scriptwriter Adam Artur Antolski. Turns out the game is real and the developers are still using some of the storyline and concepts Antolski came up with.

“When [I was] contacted [to start work], there was only a title – Sadness,” he said. “In about three or four days I come up with some ideas, which evolved into a script.

“We actually wanted to make a interactive movie, and there was couple of other ideas as well. When I was leaving, there was only one 3D object – some train cart I believe, which says a lot for me, most of the time Sadness was science-fiction.”

Sadness was first announced at E3 2006.
