    I think it might be on the DS too but hopefully they won't port the Wii version from the ds version:smilewinkgrin:
    Well there's also a PC version, point is it won't be a ps2 port.:yikes:

    Seems like a cross between Jet Grind Radio and Kororinpa

    Yeah - I've just been watching the demos at ign wii and the game looks very good - certainly at this early stage.

    It's not an entirely "new" concept though. On the Atari800XL we had a game called Rainbow Walker - where you had to re-colour a Rainbow which, like de Blob's town, was monochromatic as all the colour was stolen by evil.corp. Man those guys sure get around!! You had all sorts of peril in the game etc... and it was actually a very simple yet addictive game and this looks like it may be the same - of course with the excellent Wii controls....it's still a year away though!

    Evidentally you didn't read all the posts here because obviously it isn't a new concept...it is a physics based game developed by University students..

    Evidentally I did as - "new" is in ""'s as in original concept as in taking the monochrome world and painting it in as a gameplay aspect. I didn't mention anything to correspond to the physics side of it, which is being "developed" from a seemingly "new" idea by the university students who originally "conceived" it...the developers are adding onto the wheel not reinventing it!

    Thanks for picking me up on it tho...

    There was nothing to pick up on. I pointed out your awesome ability to point out the obvious.

    Do any of you remember Jet Grind Radio? Using the nunchuck to move and the Wiimote pointer to draw custom graphiti seems like a good control scheme for the Wii

    Isn't Jet Grind Radio like a Sony exclusive?

    Its published by Sega. It was on the Dreamcast first, then on the GBA and after that on Xbox. Sega has been working harder on the Wii lately so I wouldn't doubt we see it eventually.
