Watch: The 'Gremlins' Video Game That Never Came to Be

Watch: The 'Gremlins' Video Game That Never Came to Be

Aug 22, 2011

Back in 2001, Light and Shadow Productions was developing a video game based on the movie Gremlins for the PS2 and Gamecube systems. The game was eventually shelved and most of the work on it was destroyed. However, two videos have surfaced with one showing some 3D rendering of Gizmo, as well as another showing an entire cut scene. (And when you watch this cut scene, you'll be glad this sucker never hit shelves).

Here's a plot synopsis for you via Unseen64: “Set 20 years after the movies, Gremlins allows you to play as either Gizmo or Stripe. The plot is centred around the idea that the town of Kingston Falls has gathered to pay belated respect to Gizmo and his owner Billy for saving the town over two decades ago. That night however, Gizmo gets splashed with water that causes him to spew out hoards of Gremlins. Which, obviously, you must track down and kill so the party can continue. Just pray that somebody doesn’t use this plot for a Gremlins 3 movie. Rather than creating a standard platform game, developers LSP have included a team-management element – similar to the one found in last year’s Conflict Desert Storm. You can control your troops using the trigger buttons, and also give them orders. There are eleven areas to explore including a bank and a school, each of which is filled with Gremlins dressed up as policemen, mafia types and so on.”
