UPDATE #2 21/05/2014 7.32pm: It appears that this Sadness resurrection won't be a Sadness game after all as the rights to the IP aren't for sale.
Nibris has finally locked down a release date for Wii-exclusive Sadness.
According to the game's website, the "planned delivery date" is now autumn 2009.
For those who aren't familiar, it's a survival horror game with a film noire feel. Nibris has taken inspiration from Planescape: Torment and Eternal Darkness, and the emphasis is on suspense and atmosphere rather than blood and guts.
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.
Polish developer Nibris has revealed a few more details about its noirish gothic horror Nintendo Wii title Sadness.
Due out "no sooner than" Q4 2007, Sadness is inspired by the likes of Eternal Darkness and Planescape: Torment and will feature no menu and an invisible save system.
That's in addition to a completely black-and-white graphical style, which Nibris claims is moving towards photo-realism.
Polish outfit Nibris has issued a release to clarify a few details about its Revolution - alright, Wii - game Sadness, which it announced a fortnight ago.
Nibris sounds a bit miffed by the reaction, actually, pointing out that the game style does not correspond to Sin City, which had been mentioned as an inspiration previously, but is instead "a tribute to pre-World War I cinema" and "will have similar atmosphere".
It'll take place in one of the Slavic countries, says Nibris, and, just in case we didn't get it the first time, it's set before World War I "and not as many claim in the thirties". Which probably ought to have been obvious from the "pre-World War" comment in the original press release, but heigh-ho.
Polish developer Nibris says it's working on a film noir inspired game for Nintendo Revolution, although it hasn't said much else - with a publisher, release date, and even gameplay specifics absent from its announcement.
