Famed producer has shed some light on the development on commercial flop suggesting collaborator was “not comfortable” making the slapstick third-person shooter.

Mikami, of and Vanquish fame, teamed up with director Goichi Suda on the comedic horror spoof which published.

“It became a completely different game,” said Mikami when asked if the game turned out how the duo originally had intended.

“That was a bit disappointing. I think Suda was unable to create the scenario he’d originally had in his head,and he rewrote the scenario several times. I think his heart was broken. He’s such a unique creator, so it seems to me that he was not quite comfortable with making this game.”

“The game was nothing like Suda had planned, which is rather sad. Mind you, if we’d made it as he originally planned, it probably would have sold even less, but it would have been very unique.”

Shadows of the Damned launched in June 2011 but due to a number of factors including a lack of advertising, the game was considered a flop despite favourable reviews and a metacritic rating of 76.

Suda, who recently wrapped up work on Lollipop Chainsaw, is developing Killer Is Dead, while Mikami is working on Project Zwei – his first game with Tango Gameworks.
