Or, more likely, someone else has seen and realised the potential for a game in this fairy tale and, somehow, managed to it get it published, despite having made a far worse game from it.

The only page on which I've been able to find anything resembling stills from it.

Hm. I was going to dismiss this because the game seems entirely different than what we want to do with 8 and because the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale is public domain. But then I noticed that the team behind this game is the same team that made Ghost Master. And Ghost Master was co-designed by Chris Bateman who consulted for us on 8. His design ideas for 8 were nothing like what this Sleeping Beauty game sounds like, though. Maybe the developers got excited about the idea when he talked about it? I'll ask Chris about it.
