The original game had been in development for eight years before Nintendo decided to pull the plug on the whole project. However, thanks to a leaked copy of the game's last-updated version, it managed to find its way to the internet again.
After Adam "Koolboyman" Vierra, the developer of the game, announced that he would take down everything related to Pokémon Prism. Within a short time, an anonymous group of fans decided to do something about the cancellation of their beloved game.
