Folks behind Unseen64 and DidYouKnowGaming? have released an interesting new video that offers insight into Sony’s cancelled PlayStation 4 exclusive, Gnomageddon.
For those who don’t know, Gnomageddon was trademarked by Sony two years ago and was rumored to be a Sucker Punch title. No one really knew what it was about…until now, that is. Video game historian Liam Robertson reports in the video below that the project was an online action game under development alongside Kill Strain at Sony San Diego. Unfortunately, the latter’s failure had a role to play in Gnomageddon‘s cancellation.
The following description accompanies the video:
Gnomageddon was an online action game developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4. The project originated as a small demo made during a game jam at a division of Sony San Diego, and was gradually expanded upon. The game was planned to be free to play with optional microtransactions, and would have featured three game modes as well as six classes of gnome. The game’s main mode would have been a standard death match mode that pitted teams of good and evil gnomes against each other. The game was ultimately cancelled due to the studio as a whole not bringing in enough revenue, which was partly due to Sony San Diego’s MOBA game Kill Strain under performing.
