God of War is a PlayStation exclusive franchise and Pi Studios wanted to make a rival franchise for Xbox 360. Over five years ago, the Bonk: Brink of Extinction developer was working a brutal action game starring a barbarian. One of the key features in Pi Studios’ title was it was designed as a two player game from the beginning.

 

The barbarian had a variety of giant swords, which he could use to dismember hordes of enemies. One illustration shows three possible designs for the main character other pieces show enemy barbarians you would have to fight. The game’s world also had Amazon women that turned captured warriors into gladiators.

 

Pi Studios brought their barbarian game to various publishers, but the title wasn’t picked up beyond the concept stage.
