Before Mistwalker announced The Last Story, Cry On was their big RPG project. The RPG which followed a girl and sand giant was supposed to make players shed tears. AQ Interactive was the publisher, but they canceled the title in December 2008.
Cavia, developer of Drakengard and the PlayStation Ghost in the Shell game, was working on Cry On. While the game was announced for Xbox 360, an environmental artist from the studio says Cry On was being made for PlayStation 3. The artist’s LinkedIn profile also notes Cavia developing a toon style action adventure game for PlayStation 3, as well. This title was not announced.
Nier was the only PlayStation 3 game Cavia completed before they were absorbed into AQ Interactive, which recently merged with Marvelous to become Marvelous AQL.
