The guy that made the Neverhood is now working on a Neverhood film, so he says.

Also, apparently there's going to be a Grim Fandango movie: http://www.gamespot.com/news/show_bl...ic_id=24795084

I really doubt it's true, but the combination of Tim Burton and Grim Fandango sounds SO cool .





I only have porn pics as wallpapers (which change every 15 minutes using Webshots Desktop), so I won't post a screenie . It's the same old boring stuff anyway.

If I recall correctly, the Grim Fandango + Tim Burton one was utterly fake.

However, The Neverhood as a movie would be so awesome. I really hope he suceeeds.

It probably won't be "the Neverhood as a movie" as much as it would be a movie that takes place in the Neverhood universe. It will be claymation too.

Neverhood's creator said it in his forum: http://tennapel.nomoretangerines.com/
I can't find the thread right now tho.

be nice, but wheres the budget coming from?

Lots of creators would like movies of their works, getting publishers to back them is tricky.

That said, Disney is going ahead with a Prince of Persia: Sands of Time movie.
The script penned by the games creator, and was picked up while the game wasnt that successfull.

Sometimes publishers can invest for storys and not brand names.

I would like to see a Prince of Persia 2 movie (the classic game)... preferably a 2D animation movie.

I don't like the new PoPs.

I don't like the old ones, never did, the lack of "level codes" and the one hour limit made them suck. Everytime you had to start all over! It meant that you head to find exactly one hour of your time just for playing... absurd...

The best ones, imho, are new ones 1,3 - 2 sucked donkey balls.

And About game movies? Hmmmm, Flashback/Fade to Black, Anotherworld, Abes Odyssey, Heart of Darkness, The Dig, Advent Rising, Longest Journey (The whole LOT of the story...), Max Payne, Grim Fandango - if made by Burton would kick ass, BG&E(also the whole story), I Have No Mouth But I Must Scream, Unreal I,

I'd like to see a movie about a game called "Little Big Adventure". Not sure if you know that, it's pretty old. I heard some fans were doing a movie about it but I also heard its been kind of dead for a few years now .

Um, what?
Is this a hoax or reality?

Na, it has to be a hoax.
R rating? Pfft!

Sands of Time is like my perfect game.
Wonderfull, wonderfull story, great atmosphere, good voice acting, original and fun game mechcanics.
Apart from an overly repedative fighting near the end I cant see fault with it. (made to pad out the trap puzzles).

Indeed.
Allthough I never played the original pop2, only pop1 and the new ones.
Pop1 was great for the time, but overly frustrating by todays standards. (much like Alone in the dark)

Wonderfull stuff.

3 monitors?

I heard the creator gets nearly no help whatsoever.
