Well I've actually played Deep Down before though. 

Hot damn.. I forgot it had a demo. The game looked so good. Its a shame they scrapped the engine/and game.

Deep down is playable and got a 30min - 1 hour gameplay on youtube. Project athia on the other hand is a square enix title which means we may never see it next gen.



Please be excited.. 10 years later!



All I would say is that I didn't appreciate its reveal. Not enough meat on the bones



Could be FF16. I mean it looks so much like FF15s visuals and that FF director said he wanted to go more fantasy with less magitech. Fingers crossed.

SE are atrocious at keeping projects on track to release, they half ass things with all the FF14 money more often than not until they either scrap or rework what they have got. If it wasn't for the FF14 money picking up the slack they'd have either gone under by now or made better, more finished games and hit more of their deadlines.

No, it will just be in limbo for half a decade and will then resurface as Final Fantasy 16 and will be released another half of a decade later.



Forget Deep Down, just look at SE's own tech demos that never really turned into anything as an example of them showing things that never really turn into what you're thinking. 2012 tech demo: Agni's Philosophy

It's a tech demo. It was never meant to be game. Project Athia is a game. Project Athia has been in development since SE cancelled the last of FFXV's DLCs. This thread has absolutely no basis to exist.

By the way, What were the other gens vapourware?

uhm.. tech demos only exist to show off tech, they usually aren't ment to turn into anything - Kara turning into Detroit is a very rare case
