Video: Unseen64 Takes A Look At Lost Disney 3D Platformer ‘Project Goliath’

It’s no secret that some games, that appear to be well in development, get canned at the last minute. Liam Robertson at Unseen64 has uploaded a video to YouTube in which a title called Project Goliath fell victim to being cancelled. Taking inspiration from the likes of Jak And Daxter and around the time when development for Epic Mickey on Wii was coming to an end, Project Goliath would have given players a 3D platform adventure that focused on team work between a Gorilla and a human. The concept behind the game certainly sounded interesting with a focus on puzzle solving and the use of futuristic tools to progress. The plan was for the world to be enormous in size hence the code name Goliath given to the project. Some key art work for the game was submitted to an art contest which in turn meant that development for Goliath had to be immediately stopped and this is why we never got to see the finished product.

Check out the video below to check out how the games’ concept came to be and how Project Goliath didn’t quite make it to the shelves:

  1. I don’t give a fuck for Disney games! (Good. I can feel your anger. I am defenseless. Take your weapon! Strike me down with all your hatred, and your journey towards the dark side will be complete!)

  2. There was never many Disney games that were worth playing, but Aladdin and Lion King on the Genesis are like comfort food to me. I pick those up and beat them about once a year. Stellar platformers.

    1. Sad but true, I think they’re just too afraid to take chances and expand into the gaming industry. I thought the development process for Epic Mickey was interesting, like Mickey’s appearance changing depending on your actions, but they ended up stripping a lot of it. Then after Epic Mickey 2 failed, they canceled a Donald Duck game that actually sounded very interesting. Best they can do right now is partner with other developers like what they did with Kingdom Hearts.

      1. With same bets there would be no Super Mario, no Splatoon, no Arms. Sometimes you have to risk some new stuff to make a mark in the industry. But there are few Nintendo out there. Well… only one eventually.
