Folks, this is the big news I have been wanting to share with you for a very long time now.
Let’s just get to it.
This was given to Gremlins Online over a year ago, with the understanding that it not be made public for at least a year, and that it would not be available for download.
The game was looking pretty unique, and the footage would have been universal for the PS2 and Gamecube versions.
A fascinating tidbit learned from a source that wishes not to be named; after finishing a milestone in the project, there was simply no communication or response from the publishing company and no further instructions on the Gremlins project. It simply disappeared. Apparently those involved with LSP were used to this kind of behavior, often going weeks or even more without any communication from the project leads. Since then, all involved have moved onto new (and hopefully better) projects, but I am proud to share this bit of footage with you.
I am personally intrigued that Warner Bros allowed LSP to make such radical departure from established canon in the form of the Mogwai Council, as well as having Gizmo reproduce a new version of a long-dead enemy. Again, I don’t really know how much WB had approved, and these changes might have something to do with the game’s termination.
Again, I apologize that I cannot offer the video for download, but I hope you are as excited as I am to finally get to enjoy a little bit of the game that never was.
More info to come soon!

One of our regular readers found this on youtube which seems to be an early stage model of a Mogwai from the Gremlins PS2/Gamecube game.
Now a few people have said this looks way too good for PS2 generation graphics, but keep in mind the CGI models are much higher resolution in development than the final product. The game was never in development as far as we at Gremlins Online are aware, for any “next gen” console (360, PS3, Wii, even DS) as the dates of development are well before this console generation’s era.
Thanks for the tips folks!
Note: I have again attempted to contact the rights holders to the Gremlins video game clip I have, and asked permission to post it here so you all may see what the game may have been like.
I will keep you all updated with any info I get!
