* DevelopmentHell: The game was awarded Vaporware Awards from Wired, with three year long delays.
** The movie, supposed to be made by Creator/BlueSkyStudios is entering this as well.
* {{Vaporware}}: The "Creature Keeper" expansion.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A buttload of awesome stuff [[NeverTrustATrailer that the previews and trailers]] showed, and was cut from the final game (with various [[HandWave handwavey]] excuses from the devs), including continuing to live underwater after the cell stage, and underwater civilization. It was promised in an expansion pack that never happened.
