Unseen64 - A look at Project Goliath, a cancelled platformer for Wii with ties to Disney

A small group of developers began work on a concept they called Project Goliath, with hopes of it being picked up by Junction Point (and by extension Disney), the creators of the Epic Mickey games. The initial stages of Goliath had revolving around a large gorilla protecting small children. This concept evolved into a relationship of Tarek the gorilla working together with a girl named Ky. The two would combine their skills of strength (Tarek) and intelligence (Ky) to overcome obstacles. Goliath was planned to be a 3D platformer, and was inspired by several other games of the time, including Jack and Daxter, Rachet and Clank, and Shadow of the Colossus. The game was planned for released on the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3 (PS3), and Xbox 360, though the game never entered full production and no gameplay prototypes were made. However, Junction Point was shoot down after Epic Mickey 2 under performed in sales. To add insult to injury, the group discovered that one of their team working on Project Goliath had plagiarized artwork from others.

Random Time! - Why does this car wash play the Song of Time from Zelda: Ocarina of Time?



I...I don't understand. Why and how did this jingle get picked for this? I am so confused, and we're never going to find someone who has an answer. This is going to keep me up at night! Thanks to Tim for the heads up!

THQ Nordic says De Blob is the "perfect indie game", reveal cancelled De Blob online game with Splatoon vibes

Coming from THQ Nordic development director Reinhard Pollice...

"De Blob is the perfect indie game. On the Wii, it was a bit underrepresented - it should have been on Steam in the first place, it would have been a massive success. Although it's not that hardcore, in terms of the visual style, the mechanics are so cool and it's so relaxing. I remember when we looked into that, I was playing it with a Wii emulator and I felt like I could play it forever.

Before THQ went bankrupt, they had an online De Blob game [in development] which was basically like Splatoon. It was never released, but I think they invested a couple of million into it. They were making it for Asia. It was pretty far [through development], it wasn't far off soft-launch. But it was funny, because when Nintendo announced Splatoon I was like 'hey, I've already seen that - that's literally De Blob Online'."
