Nintendo News | Nibris Settle Some Scores

By Mike Mason 28.04.2006 13

Nibris have offered some clarifications about their development plans. It seems that some sites have been misinterpreting information and there are now some incorrect facts floating about, and so the team decided that they wanted to make everything clear with a press statement.

Previously reported to be a working title, Sadness is now the final title for the gothic horror game heading to Nintendo's next generation console. The game will take place before World War 1 (that is, before 1914), and the art style is a nod towards this era of cinema, not a similarity to Sin City. The atmosphere of the cinema of the times is hoped to be captured by the game. Sadness will be set in an as yet unnamed Slavic country.

Raid Over The River is on hold until after Sadness has been completed, with the latter now taking priority. The DS version of Raid Over The River, though, is being refined by a separate team within Nibris.

Rumours have been abound that a colour version of the game will be able to be selected, since the aim of Sadness is for it to be created as a fully black and white title. The greyscale choice, however, is essential for retaining the atmosphere of the game.

A Hollywood film studio has also been in touch with Nibris about a movie version of Sadness, but no deals have been signed and no agreements made. While Nibris cannot disclose what has been discussed, they can confirm that "[a Sadness movie] will not be filmed earlier than 2 years after it [the game Sadness] is introduced to the market" if one were to be created.

Look out for more information from Nibris about Sadness very soon.

Update: Nibris' new website is up. You can access it here. Contains sound and Flash.

Stick with C3 for more as it comes...

If Uwe phones, dont answer.

And personaly, black and white/colour option does not make sense.

Good black and white needs to be designed specficaly as such, its not merely a case of turning down the saturation to zero Smilie

Last update; Mice,Plumbers,Animatronics and Airbenders. We also have the socials; Facebook & G+

I don't think the idea behind it is like that, though, Darkflame. They'll design it specifically to suit the black and white mood, but to keep those potential awkward gamers happy there'll maybe be an extra option to play with colour...or maybe even as a hidden mode?

Who knows...but I'm glad that the Wii version of RotR has been delayed in favour of Sadness. Clearly Nintendo is pushing for the adult game than the action one.

Yeah hopfully it will be a stylized black and white graphics they use, cause any one can just turn down the colour on the TV.

looks like nibris care for their image so they dont look like they released a movie tie-in game.

-Have you any idea what it's like to be a Fembot living in a Manbot's Manputer's world?
-What?

Bugger! I want RotR much more than this, It would have been my launch game. Smilie

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

You all seen the new Nibris website yet? Nibris...Shows Raid over the River has gone from the Wii for the moment, and shows how back their spelling is in places.

RotR DS, Genre: Shotter! Smilie

Sweetest flash site I've EVER seen. Shame about the babelfished translation.

Yeah the flash site is really nice, i didn't think these guys were all that serious but there definitly showing promise!

I just hope to god there game is good for there sake, as they seem to waffle a bit on how there games are so innovative and theres a lot of patting on the back to nintendo..not that thats bad Smilie.
Still i'm ppretty amazed at how far they have come, i actually thought there blog would either fizzle out in a few months or end up being a hoax.

The website is excellent aside the spelling and grammatical errors, did you notice that I'd updated with the link to it a few hours ago? It just popped up this afternoon...

I can never get my head around why developers would make games in black and white. It's not making the game reminiscent of the era, it making the game reminiscent of the colour of films in that era. People did in fact see in colour before the 1940's (or whenever colour film came about) so why shouldn't the games be in colour?
