Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
WiiWare delivers great new games directly to Wii consoles that are connected to the Internet. Nintendo's downloadable game service will see games like:
- Cave Story: This title is an action-adventure game with new, exclusive content and features created only for the WiiWare version.
For those who don't know why this is such good news, you've apparently lived under a large rock in a deep valley in the frozen north for some time now. You're hereby ordered to mash your left mouse button on this underlined text and download Cave Story, the Metroid-like platformer developed by one dude named Pixel over the course of four years.
The web site for Cave Story Wii has gone up, too, with some wallpaper and blogs and things (and a pretty good Outer Wall remix for background music, I think). There's gonna be new music and art in the game, too, but (thankfully) the plan is it can all be turned off and put on the original goodness in the options. Finally, Pixel is apparently heavily involved in this recreation, so hopefully that means the changes will be good.
Even having played Cave Story many many times before (six minutes, bitches), I am excited as all hell for this and will plonk down the money for it the day it releases. What about you?
