Ah, So AQ Interactive Was Developing Gun Loco



Outside of a few trailers, Square Enix was pretty quiet about Gun Loco, their canceled their Xbox 360 sprint and gun shooter. For instance, the publisher never mentioned which company was developing the game.


Two Linkedin profiles point to AQ Interactive, more specifically their Artoon division. Artoon handled Blinx the Time Sweeper, Blue Dragon, and umm… Vampire Rain. The Last Story was sort of an Artoon project too, but by then AQ Interactive de-branded all of their studios into one giant AQ Interactive family.


Here’s something else interesting. Gun Loco, according to the LinkedIn profiles, has been in the works since 2007. Back in 2008, Gun Loco already had translated dialogue and in-game text. Another tidbit is Gun Loco had vehicle controls, which suggest players could drive something in the game. No trailers demonstrated this, however. Square Enix planned to publish Gun Loco this year before ceasing development of the game.
