Zootfly has insisted that recent YouTube videos of a Ghostbusters game were real.
An announcement on its website cleared up the affair:
"What you've seen running is indeed in-game footage of early prototypes on the Xbox 360, running on ZootFly's proprietary engine."
It isn't all smiles and ectoplasm, however, as licensing issues 'temporarily' put a halt to development.
Meanwhile the team will work on TimeO, a game closely related to Ghostbusters, where you'll play as a die-hard New Yorker trapped in a parallel world that threatens to wipe out our existence. You've got three days to stop it.
Both exciting and disappointing news then, but rest assured that ZootFly promise it will reassign everyone to the Ghostbusters project once the brief bump is ironed out.
