    In 1995, while he was finishing Wing Commander IV, Chris Roberts had another live-action video game in pre-production at Origin. Silverheart was to be a third person action-adventure game in a post-apocalyptic/medieval setting. It never materialized, but a tie-in novel outlined by English multiverse author Michael Moorcock was published in 2005. Now, director of photography Layton Blaylock is offering us a glimpse of what might have been with the test footage below. Thanks to Joe from the Origin Museum for the heads-up!



    In an interview with G4 from several years ago, Chris Roberts provided some more insight into Silverheart's production history:

    Cool? Hmm, yes. It definitely would have been pretty awesome, but in that very peculiar, corny way in which games like Crusader were awesome. And I mean, if it was a third person action-adventure game, and was being developed around 1996 at Origin, then it quite conceivably could have been intended to basically be a medieval fantasy Crusader. I'd definitely be all for that.
