Sadly it never took though as Atari "weren't ready" to handle something of that scope. Plague could see daylight in the future, it's idea though is "nowhere near done"; busy with Gaikai.
"It was going to be called Plague," Perry told . "It was a really big idea: lots of new hooks - kind of me. I wanted to get back to old Shiny where it was always a surprise and lots of new hooks and things you'd never seen before."
"The idea was you could fire nano-weapons into things that would actually generate objects and delete objects in real-time. It was pretty neat. I was working with a book author, and we were going to get a movie made. It was a big deal."
"But it was a little too big for Atari," he commented. "They weren't ready for that." Perry isn't finished with big game ideas yet though, but Gaikai has his full attention right now.
"Am I done with big games? Hell no. But I'm way too busy to do one right now," he said, adding that Plague, "that idea is nowhere near done yet". Right now the Earthworm Jim and MDK man is busy with his streaming game service, which shows some steady promise of late.
