“Sadness” Lives, Being Revived for Wii U
*UPDATE*: Turns out the devs don’t currently own the rights to the game, so we’ll see how this announcement pans out…
Remember Sadness? We wrote a few articles about it on the site about six years ago (here). It was a black-and-white survival horror game being developed for the Wii in 2008, with a strong emphasis on psychological horror. It was officially cancelled in 2010, but it appears to be making a comeback on Wii U, slated for release in 2016.
From Nintendo Life’s interview:
Nintendo Life: First up, can you give us an initial confirmation and a brief history of your role with Sadness in its past form?
Randy Freer: We’re here today to tell you that our two studios — HullBreach Studios and Cthulhi Games — are working together on bringing back the Sadness IP. Your readers are probably looking at their screens in disbelief. Quite understandable! I think we should let them blink a couple more times and let this sink in!
