We've heard intermittently that Night Game
(working title), the Independent Games Festival award-nominated
action-puzzler from Knytt Stories'
Nifflas, would appear on WiiWare -- an IGN interview
with composer Chris Schlarb called it a WiiWare and
PC game. Nintendo's huge press release
this morning has made it official: not only is Night Game
coming to WiiWare
, it's a WiiWare exclusive. Night Game
involves maneuvering a ball through (the silhouettes of) various environmental puzzles.
Nifflas is directing Night Game
-- which has "no enemies and no violence" -- for developer Nicalis
, which you may
know from another high-profile WiiWare project: Cave Story
. Neither company has dated Night Game
. For that matter, Nintendo didn't mention Cave Story
in its press release outside of the blurb about Night Game
. Hopefully that's still on track!
