It's Payback time 03 Mar, 2008, 18:00 / 12 comments

Some highly dedicated Spaniards have been working on an impressive series of articles about canceled adventure games, and the latest installment (English version) details the history of Full Throttle 2, which as you may know involved two distinct attempts: Payback and Hell on Wheels.

The excellent article does a fantastic job of giving you some in-depth history of the failed project, including quotes from Bill Tiller and behind-the-scenes details that have not previously been talked about. On top of that, some newly unearthed concept art is included. Check it out.

Thanks to reader Diduz for the heads up!

    Great article and great to see those pieces of never seen before concept art (and I love that use of partially transparent pngs! So cool!)

    I don't know why Mixnmojo is linked to in the last line, though. It makes it sound like Bill Tiller works for us!

    Glad you liked it. :)

    We thought we owed you the link, as the series was kind of born after seeing your list of canceled games. Besides, some information is also taken away from it. I have changed the way we linked you, better now?

    Oh, and I meant to ask you: might we have permission to use the concept art that we don't already have in our games database? We'd make sure to link back to the article in the image description.

    Oh, sure you can. :)
  • Gabez on 03 Mar, 2008, 19:13…
    Heh, yeah, that makes more sense now. And thanks a lot for linking to us. :)

    You have a really wonderful web-site, and if, in some far-future parallel universe, we ever get a link section put onto this site, we'll definitely link to you! Keep up the great work *thumbs up*!

    We will post the interview in English version soon. If you want to, I will let you know about it.

    We are Spanish, indeed, thanks for the correction Diduz. :)

    Perhaps we will have more pieces on Lucasarts in the series, who knows... ;)

    There's sure enough of them!

    That was a great article! Is the first one in English? What game is it?

    I assume Sam & Max will follow shortly...

    Apparently the first article was about Space Babes and The Naked Gun, so I'm not so sure about Sam & Max. Though today is the four year anniversary!

    The site also has a nice, but to my knowledge untranslated, interview with Barwood and Falstein about Mata Hari including some new screenshots, so check that out too!

    Ahem, I think the dedicated fans are Spanish (I am Italian, but I didn't work on the article, unfortunately).
