Monolith shelves Project H.A.M.M.E.R

It would have seemed Monolith's unique natural disaster-themed adventure, Disaster: Day of Crisis, had died in a storm because it made no appearance at E3, despite being heavily built up for a 2007 release.

Day of Crisis, along with Monolith's other Wii exclusive title, Project H.A.M.M.E.R, was among the first games to be unveiled for Wii, and was expected at E3 this year in a near-complete form. So where is it?

"Disaster is still under development," a Nintendo spokesperson told us today, but went on to admit "we've shifted development resources from Project H.A.M.M.E.R. You may hear about it in the future, but it's off the schedule for now."
