A prototype of The Vatz for the Xbox.


  • Developed by Beenox Studios for the PC and Xbox. The game was scheduled to be shown at E3 2002. The game boasts a custom engine called Goliath that was capable of advanced physics, animation morphing, and blending. The game was silently cancelled for unknown reasons, and media is very scarce.
  • The game itself serves as a pitch of sorts with points in the game used as a way to showcase and explain the game's concepts and goals.
