After breaking our hearts by showing us the Road Rash remake which never will be
, the gaming industry's Encyclopedia Brown, supererogatory, dug up another pair of intriguing titles
which sadly never saw the light of day. The personal blog of game designer Ward Moore mentions two Sim games
which were ultimately canceled in order to focus on the blockbuster The Sims
, a game based on the SimTown
engine set in medieval times, and SimMars
, which ... simulated life on Mars, we guess?
Moore's blog included a look
at the called-off Martian endeavor, seen above. The blog of illustrator Corey Keller
includes a few conceptual designs from SimCastle
, one of which can be seen after the jump. SimAnt
, which perplexingly somehow
got made while these two promising titles didn't, can be seen here
. Life can be awfully
unfair at times.
