Fallout: New Vegas Dev Had Worked On A Snow White Prequel
Well, this could've been interesting for the young 'uns.
You never hear about most games that end up getting canceled. And you probably couldn't have predicted that Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment spent a full year developing a "Snow White" prequel before Disney gave it the ax.
As Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart told Kotaku in a recent interview, the game was being designed for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and was slated to be a third-person action quest featuring the seven dwarves. In fact, it was tentatively titled "Dwarves" and the team even had the climax all set- The player would banish the unnamed antagonist into Snow White's magic mirror. Said Urquhart:
"It was a lot of fun. We feel we turned in a really cool prototype. We worked on it for about a year. It's one of the games here that the team just loved working on. And unfortunately--which, it happens in this industry--you have changes of focus at a publisher."
Obviously, the game was likely targeting a younger audience, but it still could've been cool. I'm wondering how the gameplay mechanics would've worked, and what precisely we would've done with the dwarves. Would each have his own skill set? Like would Sneezy be able to blow away pesky enemies with a few good honks? Who knows?
