I’m not exactly sure what happened this morning but somehow I stumbled upon an article I wrote back in June 2005. And holy crap I sucked at writing back in those days, why anyone was reading is still a mystery to me but I’m really glad they did.
But what also caught my eye was the game I was talking about called 2 Days to Vegas which was meant to be a GTA killer and yet it seems to have disappeared entirely.
The official website describes the game as such:
“2 Days To Vegas” is a story driven 3rd person action-adventure game. The thrill-a-minute story is crammed full of car chases, shootouts and unexpected twists, to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the game. The action is set in several major cities across the USA and takes place during an intense 48 hour period. This game has it all, a gripping story of contemporary gangster life combined with thrilling car chase action and an intense race against the clock.
So that actually sounds pretty cool and there are some graphics on the page as well
Not bad for a game that was supposedly going to release in 2008. I initially believed the game had just died off and that the company, Steel Monkeys, had moved onto bigger and better things. However if you can read Russian you can see that they were actively looking for beta testers for this title in July last year.
Apparently the game is coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 but I honestly believe this small studio has bitten off way more than it can chew and the game that has been in development limbo for 9 years is never going to see the light of day.
Which is a pity as it actually sounds like it could have been a lot of fun.
