We'd always thought Project Milo, Lionhead's Kinect tech demo from E3 2009, was an actual game. Or at least an actual something. Turns out it's not, and will probably never be released to market.
While Microsoft told us that "Project Milo is something that is in ongoing development at Lionhead Studios" following its no-show at this year's E3, Xbox's director of product management Aaron Greenberg now tells Aussie TV show Good Game, "Last year we unveiled the Project Natal technology, we showed a bunch of technology demos as part of that. And obviously [Milo] is a technology demo that continues to exist, but right now it's not a game that we're planning to bring to market."
Sure answers the question of "how the hell is this kid supposed to be fun?", if a tech demo was all it was intended to be. It now seems likely that whatever technology was powering Milo will turn up in a future Lionhead game. Fable IV: The Apprentice, maybe?
