** The rest of the story was eventually published as a book with the same name, so, yeah, there will be no sequel, at least not as a game.

** Someone who was working on Sadness revealed many years later that [[TroubledProduction production was extremely troublesome]] and that the only things that were completed were the script, concept art and one in-game object, a minecart. In 2014, Hull Breach Studios and Cthulhi Games had plans to develop the game (as a 2D WiiU release) and even announced the project on their website, but not long afterwards, it was said that the rights for Sadness are, confusingly, either not for sale or in a bidding war, and that there are 4 companies competing for the rights of the IP. The game seemed promising, and since Nibris was terribly incompetent with the development of the game, it would be better for another company to make it anyway. There is a possibility of the game surfacing after more than a decade, but who knows if that will actually happen. There is also a chance of it being different from the original concept; like mentioned above, they wanted to change the graphics to 2D.

* ''VideoGame/SuperBatPuncher'', a critically-acclaimed NES homebrew PlatformGame. All that was ever released of it was a two-level demo, back in 2011. The developers have since moved on to another project, ''Micro Mages''.

** Ironically, the ''[[VideoGameRemake remake]]'' of ''Resi 2'' is now suffering this even more than the original did: Capcom announced they were making it in 2015, and in 2018 we still know absolutely ''nothing'' about it, although people are expecting a big reveal or announcement at E3 2018.

* ''VideoGame/LaMulana'''s developers managed to fund a sequel [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/playism/la-mulana-2 through Kickstarter]]. It was supposed to come out in December 2015. It's November 2017 at the time of this writing, and ''La-Mulana 2'' isn't out of the beta stage yet. Their site's [[http://nigoro.jp/en/category/blog/ blog]] mentions that the lead programmer needed surgery, but no major news after that, and even the Kickstarter backers received very limited info on the game's development.

* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet HUB'', a free-to-play installment in the ''[=LittleBigPlanet=]'' series, was announced back in 2013. Whenever [[WordOfGod Steven Isbell]] was asked about it, he responded that the team was working on the Creator/DetectiveComics DLC (in 2013) or [=LittleBigPlanet=] 3 (in 2014) or that there was just no new info. Content from that game later appeared in [=LBP3's=] Seaside Surprise DLC in 2016, and the Challenges feature that was set to make an appearance in ''HUB'' was added to [=LBP3=] in an update, making it highly unlikely that the game is still a thing.

* Ports of the original ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' trilogy for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance were announced coming off the success of ''Metal Slug Advance''. Despite its near completion of the first game, it was ultimately canned due to memory constraints and the fact that its late release date on the system and the near release ''[[CompilationRerelease Metal Slug Anthology]]'' would've made the [=GBA=] ports obsolete. Efforts were then shifted to create ''Metal Slug 7'' for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS.
