What happened to ShootMania Monolith

Post by keeth » 30 Apr 2017, 22:43

Greetings everyone!
I recently discovered a abandoned project Nadeo has previously worked on. It was supposedly a Zombi title pack made for shootmania storm.
And to be brutaly honest; it looks amazing.

I just can't understand why the project was put on ice nor can i find any offical quote from either Nadeo or Ubisoft about this matter.

And i've heard rumours that this title pack (Monolith) is infact close to finish.
And i have to say that to know that there is this amazing title pack lying around that we can not enjoy pains me.
And i'm sure the community as a whole agrees with me.

Heres a few screenshots of ShootMania Monolith:

Completely agree, it's a pain to see such a titlepack and not being able to play ;-;

I'm not sure but I think I've heard some times that this titlepack unfortunately was cancelled due to youth protection and the "family friendly" course of Maniaplanet.

In my opinion this is a bad excuse. There are ways to get around that today with DLC packs and what not.
On top of that, most of the content in the game today is player made. i.e maps and items.

There is nothing stopping us from making any of the things in Monolith our selv and use them.
We can litturally make a skin of whatever we want.
Plus there are already advertisement blocks where we could, if we wanted to, show whatever we want. :pop:

I've also heard about that pegi thingy, but well, studio's decision...

But what the studio can, is possible for us as well #Alpha xD

Would this really be the reason?

I mean... Isn't this something you check BEFORE you start working on something?
I dont think they are gonna waste time on this to then cancel it... That wouldnt be effecient, you see? :/
NADEO y u do diz? :oops: #MP4

Did they actually waste time on it as a studio though? Seemed to me like someone just drew up a concept for it but they never actually started working on it. I might remember it all wrong though.
