Indie developer Dakko Dakko recently released their first Wii U game Scram Kitty and his buddy on rails (which I personally think is a funny name) was released in North America and Europe (Sadly no Australian release). However they are already working on their next game for the Wii U, this was revealed when Dakko Dakko’s Rhodri Broadbent spoke with Eurogamer, though no specific details were given on the game.
Along with this Broadbent has also discussed his love for the Wii U and how the system “always brings a lot of new potential to gameplay, because you think about things in a different way.”
Broadbent’s words in full:
“I love it! It’s still a little joy box to me. As a developer, I’m still working on a project right now I can’t talk about now on the Wii U. It always brings a lot of new potential to gameplay, because you think about things in a different way. It’s always nice to have more control options, and more weirdness in your hardware in terms of being able to inspire new ideas in a developer. I’m sad it hasn’t reached the market it was supposed to, or I expected it to. But in terms of delivering good games I think it’s doing well.
“I’m a big fan of all crazy hardware. As a kid, and as a developer, I’ve always been interested in things that use hardware and interesting ways, and interesting hardware that brings new interesting experiences. That is the essence of gameplay for me, that fusion of the hardware and software together – when the hardware’s more quirky, the software can become so.”
It is always great to hear that some developers love the Wii U, now we just need a whole lot more and the world will be great.
