Artwork From Argonaut Games’ Mission Impossible And Aeon Flux Pitches

Argonaut Games, the studio that made Star Fox, tried to make a game based on Mission Impossible. A pitch took place in 2004, which means this was likely a tie-in for Mission Impossible III. An artist at Argonaut drew Tom Cruise as he would appear in their PlayStation 2 game.

Argonaut Games was apparently big on grabbing movie licenses. They also made a pitch for an Aeon Flux game in 2004, but Terminal Reality nabbed the license and developed an Aeon Flux game with Majesco as the publisher. Here’s a look at Argonaut’s pitch, which appears to be more in line with the animated series.

One of Argonaut’s last titles was Catwoman: The Game. In the same year it was released Argonaut shut their doors and closed their London based studio. Perhaps, if one of these projects got picked up Argonaut would still be around today.

    Truth to be told argonaut fell from prominence long before it closed it’s doors and while chasing movie licences might be a way to stay afloat those are rarely any good amongst other things because the devs really rather make something else and of course the tight schedules and disregard for quality. And that alone could have killed the companies morale/make the best staffers.

    I believe with starfox and stunt race they did the programing and not the game itself (level design and the like) so I’d like to stress their call to fame was Red Dog on DC and i-Ninja.

    Shame i-ninja was just an year before they closed doors though.

    oh my god i was just searching about Aeon Flux few days ago.

    Aeon Flus definitely reminds me of Ghost in the Shell :P
