Climax Studios teases Prince of Persia-esque title

Now-removed images show a tech demo for an unannounced "character action platformer."


Silent Hill: Shattered Memories developer Climax Studios has uploaded screenshots for an upcoming title that resemble a Prince of Persia-style game.

The now-removed images for the unannounced title--dubbed by Climax as a "character action platformer"--were marked as a tech demo.

The leaping, bounding protagonist is shown sporting a white vest and red sash, and the architecture in the background of one shot resembles the Middle Eastern aesthetic of Ubisoft's Prince of Persia series.

Ubisoft has said the Prince of Persia series is currently "paused," but that the game remains part of the publisher's portfolio.

"Prince of Persia is part of Ubisoft's portfolio," said Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat in January. "As a matter of fact, we sometimes iterate on franchises and sometimes we give them time to breathe and time to grow, or time to rest. Prince of Persia is as important as any other franchise for Ubisoft. As soon as we have something to show, we will."

The last Prince of Persia title--Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands--was released in 2010.

Climax Studios is also working on another project, which also remains unnamed, though the framing of the screenshots suggests a game with horror themes.
