BioWare considered a kung fu RPG

BioWare’s Greg Zeshuk has said the developer once pitched a Baldur’s Gate-style RPG about kung fu – with no success.

IGN reports Zeshuk mentioned the aborted title during his DICE Summit presentation.

“We took it out to Interplay and they laughed us out of the building,” he told attendees.

The game was titled Five Fingers of Death, and was set to parody classic kung fu films with cutscenes. Zeshuk put together several short scenes for the canned title, and even recorded voice overs personally.

The developer has no plans to resurrect the idea, although given how well BioWare worked the doubtful Mass Effect formula, maybe EA will be keen.
