David Perry has spoken out about his multi-million dollar title which Atari dropped three years ago.

“It was going to be called Plague,” Perry told Eurogamer. “It was a really big idea: lots of new hooks – kind of me. I wanted to get back to old Shiny where it was always a surprise and lots of new hooks and things you’d never seen before.

“The idea was you could fire nano-weapons into things that would actually generate objects and delete objects in real-time. It was pretty neat. I was working with a book author, and we were going to get a movie made. It was a big deal.

“But it was a little too big for Atari. They weren’t ready for that.”

Perry stated that his idea for the game is “nowhere near done yet”.

“Am I done with big games? Hell no. But I’m way too busy to do one right now,” he said.
