Edge of Twilight has Melissa George and Mike Patton in it

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.

Souri, Edge of Twilight "had" Mike Patton and Melissa George (and a host of other Australian actors) but the project has been dead for a couple of years now, Fuzzyeyes has been liquidated and to my knowledge there is no one working on this anymore.

For the record, the VO work of all actors involved was great!

Would you know when the voice over work started/finished? Melissa George and Mike Patton are credited for their work on Edge of Twilight in 2011 this year on IMDB, which is why I thought it was current.

Thinking about it now, if you create an entry on IMDB and leave it as "in production", maybe it lists the title as a current year production (for the IMDB page as well as the actors credits) until it's marked as released?

Yeah i believe imdb must list the title as the current year regardless so its not indicative. The VO work was completed sometime in 2008 when the project was still in full production, about a year before the studio closed.

IMDB also lists Bruce Spense and Gary Sweet!

The funny part is, who owns the rights to the game now ?

The funny part is that this years old news item should of had it's comments locked since it's not exactly new news.

Keeps the site and comments more relevant that way I think to the majority of site patrons.
