What we bring you today are screens from a cancelled game that was once in development, titled RavenBlade. The game was described as an action RPG and was heavily influenced by Dungeons and Dragons. You guys can read about the entire project here
" Retro's fourth project was a fantasy RPG simply known as "RPG". On March 27, 2001, Retro Studios trademarked the name of "Rune Blade" for the game, but later renamed it to Raven Blade before E3 2002. The project was reportedly the baby of Steve Barcia; however, David "Zed" Cook was the project's senior designer.
David Cook has been in the game industry since 1979, and he is best known for his work on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition Dungeon Master's Handbook and the pen-and-paper game Planescape from TSR, Inc. In 2003, Mr. Cook was inducted into the Academy of Adventure Gaming Hall of Fame, also known as the Origins Awards. Several games credited to his name are Lords of the Realm III, Fallout 2, and the upcoming super villain title, City of Villains from NCsoft and Cryptic Studios (the sequel to the PC MMORPG City of Heroes)."
What we were able to dig up from a Gene Kohler's blog was a few in-game screens from the game, which look really good and feel that somewhere this game should come back to life in some form or the other.
