Backbone Entertainment
Role:
Concept Artist, Game Design assistance
Status:
Cancelled
Notes: As a huge Astro Boy fan, I was so psyched up to work on a game based on the upcoming Astro Boy movie. That is, until I saw the butchered character designs... and then read the abomination of a script.

I'm very glad the game was given to a different developer, as the designers at Backbone didn't have much intention of doing the character justice (they basically wanted to re-skin Death Junior), but of course whoever took over the final project never did the character any justice either.
After seeing the direction that this Atro Boy reboot was headed, I really wished that the movie had been cancelled and given to another studio too.

Below are some samples from this game:

I didn't save any examples from this game.
