Salvatrix claims that the reason the game was never released in the end was due to a poor economy, which caused them to lose their publisher, the studio, Factor 5, and the game completely.
There are two videos, one is a longer clip of a very early build that is still full of bugs and problems, although the format is solid and the potential is there, something you see more clearly in the other, much shorter clip of what develops Salvatrix says was more their goal for the final product.
