Too slow

Late last night I came across something that very closely resembles one of my own concepts.

Retro City Rampage, for Wii initially.

The similarity is obviously frustrating, but I wish them the best of luck – and if their product does appear to have some success, I’ll know I’m on the right track with at least one of my other ideas…

  1. Actually, Retro City Rampage has been in development in some form or another since 2002.

    • Thanks for the information Frank. I didn’t suggest they had only recently started developing this – but as it happens, the team’s development blog starts in July 2010 (about the same time I started writing my concept), and I came across the title in October 2010.

      I’m not claiming my similar concept (or RCR itself) is an original concept anyway, as is the nature of anything retro themed, or parodies. I was just pointing out that my concept has some striking resemblances, which is purely coincidental due to being in the same genre; and that it’s frustrating as the work and time I put in to that concept could have been put to better use.

      Once again, I wish them the best of luck, I congratulate them on getting there first, and I look forward to playing it.
