Ender's Game Project Cancelled

Joystiq has word the planned games based on the Orson Scott Card novel Ender's Game are on indefinite hold. "We have and had an amazing design for the Ender's Game game," Chair Entertainment co-founder Donald Mustard tells them, "[but] one of [parent company] Epic's primary objectives is to create original and unique franchises. I don't know that Ender's Game fits into that strategic objective anymore." When asked if the game was still expected he said: "probably not... Not from us."

Other than the genuinely great twist at the end of the first book, they are totally banal. Younger teens like the books because kids are the main characters and adults are shown as "ineffectual" against the aliens.

Better bet are the best novels of Heinlein, Clark and Asimov.
