With all the vague Revolution
declarations we've had in the last few weeks, it comes as a refreshing gush of air to see someone actually fully
committing to developing a Revolution game. The squares over at Cubed3 have posted an interview with just such
a developer, Crossbeam Studios Entertainment, politely quizzing
them about their forthcoming first-person RPG adventure, Orb.
Though the game has yet to find a publisher or a Revolution development kit, it's already being designed with Nintendo's console in mind. This isn't the first time we've seen a small team of developers making Revolution games on their mouse-driven computers, but it raises some fears as to whether or not it's a good idea to count your eggs before they've hatched. After all, there's a chance that no publisher will take interest in the game at hand--even Nintendo might politely decline.
"The only thing that worries me is Nintendo has thrown out far too many game ideas because they think it won't fly, when in fact they are great ideas. They are too scared of not making it. "
While that doesn't really sound like the Nintendo we know, there is a certain level of quality expected before you get that famous golden seal of approval stamped on your game. Let's hope things turn out well for Orb. If not, there's always Xbox Live Arcade to fall back on...
