It's been two years since we've last heard of any news concerning Edge of Twilight, the Unreal engine powered console game from Brisbane based Fuzzyeyes studios. The studio and its publisher (Southpeak Interactive) assured media that the steam punk themed third person action adventure title was still in development, despite providing official confirmation that most of the staff that was working on it were let go as management decided to look towards offshore outsourcing to finish off the rest of the game amidst the global financial crisis.
There was news of legal issues in late 2009 with Edge Games (run by notorious patent troll, Tim Langdell) over the use of the word "Edge" in Edge of Twilight, however that seems to have been amicably resolved by both parties. Of course, that could have possibly meant that a license was issued and paid for by Fuzzy for its use.
It seems that development for Edge of Twilight may be in development despite a long absence in the news as an entry on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) website for EOT updated last June shows that Fuzzyeyes hired the vocal talents of Perth-born former Home and Away actress, Melissa George, as well as Faith No More and Mr Bungle vocalist, Mike Patton, for a starring role in the game. IMDB has the following description for Edge of Twilight...
Edge of Twilight plays in a world where day and night have been split into two separate realms. The player takes control of Lex, who is the only being alive holding the ability to transverse between the two realms.
Edge of Twilight was initially a self-funded $7.5 million project with a release date of 2009. Before the economic downturn, Fuzzyeyes revealed to Gamasutra in 2008 that they were 200 employee strong and spread across four studios in Taipei, Taiwan and Beijing, China, and their main headquarters in Brisbane.
