A Very Early Look At The First Game From Tango Gameworks?

By Spencer . December 14, 2010 . 12:37pm


Aside from Shadows of the Damned, Shinji Mikami is developing another game with his own studio, Tango Gameworks. Mikami hasn’t said much about the project, but a posted photo of environment designer Eirou Yoshii may have given us a glimpse of it.


Some kind of circular object (maybe a well?) and dead trees?


Yoshii appears to be an ex-Capcom employee. His previous titles include Devil May Cry, Resident Evil 4, and Monster Hunter Tri.

  • Perhaps its time to invest in an iPod Touch. I cant imagine having to use that scroll wheel, gah. The view from the office looks murky, ew.

    That looks like a Supersaurus or either Amphicoelias fragillimus.

    • Some people like the wheel. Not everyone wants a touchscreen player that doesn’t even have tactile buttons.

    Is that Cthulhu? I can’t even see what it is BUT IT LOOKS GODLY ALREADY

    …A well and dead trees would make sense. Combined with those weird bug drawings this is looking more and more like a horror game.

    EDIT: Watch in horror as it turns out to be Mikami’s answer to Dream Club.

    I can’t wait. I have a feeling Tango is going to be an awesome studio.

      to bad this will be shinji’s last game(hopefully it’s not true)

      i want a killer 7 like game again though shadows of the damned looks like a more punk rock game. will see soon.

      Being established by Mikami and having Spongebob’s pet Gary as its mascot makes it automatically awesome already.

    I see…
    I see masts.
    I see electricity posts.
    I see a factory.
    I see a ghost that is shaped like a tube, and has hair coming out of its butt.
    I see land.
    I see what is probably part of the design software interface.

    (No, I don’t do drugs)

    By the gods, it just dawned on me: I have no idea.

    Could be nice, though.

    • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

      I don’t see any of those things except for the masts.

      But you see a ghost shaped like a tube with butthair, TS sees a Supersaurus, and I see Cthulhu. I think we’re all looking at the same object diagonally left of center, that much is unmistakable. XD

      • [The Hunter] Doomrider

        Yusaku, help me. I fear for my sanity xD

        This is like a Rorschach test. If a single, potential screen from the game can mess us up like this, imagine what the full game has in store for us =O

        Mikami, you fabulous master of deception.

        • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

          Yes, it will be the true psychological horror game we’ve been awaiting this generation.
          No more guns. No more cheap thrills. No more cheesy zombies.
          There is no help for you… or I. Prepare for mind crush! >,<
