    I really enjoyed the "old" Tremors movies and while I just found out that the "Tremors 5" movie got released on blu-ray last year, with mixed ratings and even If I was sure it got canceled, I bought it. :D
    And I remebered I read something about a Tremors game back in 2004(?)...

    So I started googling.

    According to the wikipedia entry :

    "the game was cancelled before production was finished." PC & PS2 & XBox

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tremors_(franchise)

    Announced in August 2002 for PS2, Xbox, and PC, Tremors was a single-player third person survival-horror action title based on the movies and television series of the same name. Gameplay elements included finding creative methods to avoid walking on the ground, hiding character's body heat signatures, and battling with ranged and melee weapons against various types of Graboids.
    Though an official reason was never clearly given by the developers or Conspiracy Entertainment, Tremors was quietly cancelled sometime in the summer of 2003 shortly after Swedish production studio Starbreeze AB acquired Rock Solid Studios. Problems with Tremors license and likeness rights are unofficially to blame.

    So, how far was it in development ?

    I contacted someone at Avalanche Studios, whom I got in my fb friendlist.
    Avalanche Studios got "formed" out of Rock Solid Studios AB back then.

    And as always, if anybody has any infos, feel free to share.
    Obscure, I havent found a thread about it here on assembler. ^^

    Sigma Team is one of the co-developers based on the end of the trailer. While similar to Postal 1 (Isometric 3D), it appears to be running on the Alien/Zombie Shooter engine or some variant. If you look at their other games on their FB page you can see what I mean. Either way, both companies (Sigma Team and Running With Scissors/POSTAL) are partnered with ZOOM Platform for re-releases, etc.

    Just found this SEGANerds article too, these guys (ZOOM) are busy, they have a Hitman-esque stealth game in the works as well called Shadow Stalkers.

    By the way, should we start a separate thread or stick on this one, since they are technically two different games (Tremors 2003 and 2017).

    Saw you worked for zoom platform @Bad_Ad84 and hope you don't mind my asking, but do you have anything you can share on the Tremors and/or Shadow Stalkers titles?
