    This video goes into the history of the game, showing its early concepts and pitches, and why the game was ultimately cancelled.

    For some reason, I think of The Swedish Chef whenever I hear the title of the game.

    Looks like it would have been a great little game. I really like the sound track.

    Great work on it, unfortunate that this was so close to completion and it was never released :(

    I still really want to play this game. Did anyone with a copy ever give a price to release it?

    Im always willing to work out something, people just need to PM me. I only saw this one sold, and a PS3 build someone else has. Not to discount there being other stuff out there though.

    I played this at Comic-Con one year and took a photo of the booth.

    Like the old Bonk games, it was fun but kinda simple and not all that striking. The power-ups were interesting, though, and I'd have given it a shot had it seen release.

    Poor Hudson. The modern industry just doesn't have much room for middleweight companies.

    Mine has the first two worlds. Likely more than that as well but locked away. The PS3 version in a collectors hands is more complete, but I havent heard back in quite some time. So really, my copy is it that I know of.

    how did you come by the 360 version? i have been looking for the 360 version fpr ages and in the hope that one day someone would post it so i could play it on my jtag.
    even though i know the 360 version was in production i started to think maybe nobody had a copy.
    i have said this before but i really is a shame this game was never released because the bonk games are great.

    They are no real uploads that I've ever seen. Other than the handful of us who have it, it's just not out there. As I said, I'm willing to work stuff out, but no one ever bites.
