Snake Plissken

Hey may have escaped from New York and LA, but not even Snake Plissken could escape from a cancelled video game.

We’ve seen plenty of movie characters get their shot on a smaller screen. Most of those shots have completely missed the mark, with those adaptations being stale and terrible at best. One iconic movie character who missed out on some video game glory though?

Snake (1)Snake (2)

Anti-hero Snake Plissken, the man who was pretty much the influence behind another reptilian icon in gaming, Solid Snake. Plissken and his Escape movies are still cult favourites to this day, and back in 2005, we would have gotten a chance to see his first foray at getting out of tight spots.

Snake Plissken’s First Escape was the name of the game, and it would have starred the voice and likeness of the man himself, Kurt Russell. Check out some of the gameplay below, via Kotaku:

It was meant to be the first in a series of Snake Plissken games. Pity it never worked out well enough, and the project was scrapped.

And quite honestly, I would have played the shit out of a game starring that Hollywood icon. Call me…Snake.

      The real Snake doesn’t look too impressed.

      No no no my friend. When I first played Metal Gear Solid I was thinking of Snake Plissken and how awesome an Escape from (x) would be. In response to the Alien Emperor, not sure an FPS would truly hit the mark with this. I reckon a 3rd person open world action stealth game with vehicles. Lots of open world action, close quarters stealth and vehicles. The gameplay looks like a typical budget movie title. Would’ve been a disappointment but most of the concepts look good.

            People want to know why I’m laughing, but I’m not sure if I should show them.

            hahaha actual conversion:

            “Hey, do you want to see something that’ll make you laugh, but then feel bad about it?”
            “Not if it’s about a disabled person.”
            “Okay, never mind then.”
            “Oh God!”

        That would be better, don’t think anyone would spend the money on making something like that properly though. That’s why I was thinking more along the lines of a small FC3 Blood Dragon type game.

    Dont forget the movie “Soldier” also with Kurt Russel…

    “Sandra: How do you know they’ll be back?

    Todd: Because they’re soldiers, Sir. Like me.

    Sandra: Why are they doing this?

    Todd: They’re obeying orders, Sir. It’s their duty.

    Sandra: Do you know how many there will be?

    Todd: Seventeen more, Sir.

    Sandra: Oh my God, you can’t fight seventeen more on your own, you have to organize us. We’re not cowards, we’ll do as you tell us, we’ll fight.

    Todd: No.

    Sandra: Why not?

    Todd: Soldiers deserve soldiers, Sir.

    Sandra: But one soldier, against seventeen. What are you going to do?

    Todd: I’m going to kill them all, Sir.”

    This reminded me of Punisher and the 1st Splinter Cell. Just a quick question, was this an official gameplay trailer?
