This article is about the development and ultimate cancelling of Zootfly's version of Ghostbusters: The Video Game (named Ghostbusters game).
On January 10 of 2007, Zootfly uploaded videos to YouTube that showed a Ghostbusters game in action for the Xbox 360. Though the tech demos were legitimate according to developer ZootFly, trouble with copyright issues arose as no license had been granted. By January 25, 2007 (15 days later) Sony had removed the YouTube videos by Zootfly related to Ghostbusters. In order to avoid possible lawsuits, ZootFly changed the project name to TimeO and removed any ghostbusters related information.

- Gamespot- Q&A Ghostbustin' with ZootFly Bostjan Troha: "The story would follow the original, by all means. It's the perfect equilibrium of horror, action, and comedy with crazy New Yorkers dealing with crazy stuff. We would update some aspects of the IP, but only slightly."
