can't find the name of this one game...

so a while back (i'm now thinking maybe a year ago), i saw an article here or kotaku about some ex-developers from a normal console studio who had left their company and formed a really small iphone game company. i thought the game they were making for the iphone was something along the lines of 'bullet train' and it looked like an action platformer/shooter that took place on the roof of a train.

i don't remember their former company (might have been EA) or the new one, and i have searched google and my rss feed for the game to no avail. all i remember was that i wanted to keep an eye out for the game as more info was released, but i don't think i bookmarked it, and now i'm starting to think it was all a dream.

does anyone have an idea of the game i'm talking about? thanks.

i don't think that's it. i know the train thing fits my (very poor) description, but the dev studio was only a couple of guys. the art style of the game was also a lot better from what they had shown.

still, action hero's free, so i'll give it a whirl.

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

dang, none of those are it. i slept on it, and remembered that in the first developer blog, they mentioned that the main antagonist in the game was a play on the name of a former boss at their old company. and the story behind the game was that the world is connected by railroad tracks, and this evil corporation was swallowing up all the small train companies (this was made to represent their former employer). maybe they were trying to control the railroads so they could do some price fixing or something, but i don't remember.

I remember seeing something about the game you are talking about. I'll do some research. I do not think the action was on top of the train though. I think
the characters were in the train through doors and windows. I remember the part about the "EX-Boss" in the article I read and that tweaked my memory.

You could be right though about the game play..I'm not too sure.

Found it......The game is called BulleTrain.........It is still in production.

Cheers!
