Nibris has revealed it is still looking for a publisher for its atmospheric black and white Wii thriller, Sadness.

The developer told Eurogamer that because of this the game remains without a release date - despite having been unveiled to the press more than two years ago.

Sadness is a "crime noir" horror adventure pitched at adults who like being scared. It is set back in World War I and has you controlling the hands of the hero by using the Wiimote and nunchuk. This should make you feel part of the action, apparently.

Nibris has previously told us its inspiration comes from the likes of Planescape: Torment and Eternal Darkness. You can expect an invisible save system and an absence of menus.
