Here’s a look at a screenshot from a game called Suburbia that we started building a number of years ago, yet the project was scrapped. A lot of times in game development, you’ll find a concept that you like and you’ll do some concept art and then eventually more evolved art to show prospective partners and gamers what the game could look like. This is a game that got that far, yet has never seen the light of day.
The game is basically Sim City meets Minesweeper – You remember that game? It’s probably on your computer along with Chess, Solitaire, and other games that are located in your Windows/Game folder.
Actually, the concept goes back to 2005 when it was called Urban Sprawl. Maybe one day Suburbia will finally be playable, yet for the moment it remains on our game shelf.
