    Found something cool on the site of VC News and such.

    A rather unknown developer recently revealed that it was working on a Wii Ware game called "Plattchen". Now, a different developer has stepped up and revealed "Gravitronix".

    "Medaverse" have announced this new game for the future service, but haven't really disclosed much information, besides that the game will have a multiplayer mode. Here's the whole press release:

    ""Wii have made our Choice!"


    Medaverse Studios Announces Wii Developer Status
    Dover, New Hampshire - August 20th, 2007 - Medaverse Studios (medaverse.com) announced today that it has been licensed as an official developer for the Nintendo Wii.

    "We're immensely grateful to Nintendo for giving us this opportunity," said Jesse Lowther, Lead Designer, "As a creative team, we had always toyed with the idea of game development and we even had an RPG in the planning stages during the height of the GBA's popularity. We had all but given up on that dream, but when Nintendo first revealed the Wii remote to the world, that dream came back with a vengeance. Once WiiWare appeared on the horizon, we knew it was our chance."

    Medaverse hopes to have their first title, Gravitronix, launch on Nintendo's WiiWare service when it debuts in 2008.

    "We're looking forward to introducing our own unique style to the gaming world with Gravitronix," Lowther said, "We hope to offer a fun and accessible gaming experience which is easy to learn but a challenge to master, including a robust multiplayer mode with enough hidden depth to keep even the most hardcore of players struggling to outdo each other. The way we see it, if you don't swear when you lose to another player, we haven't done our job."

    Look for more news and updates regarding Medaverse Studios and Gravitronix in the near future."

    Newly developed arcade-type games exclusively for the VC? It actually seems promising.

    Old school titles are nice, but it's great to see original titles being developed for the VC.

    It's good to see smaller developers are being given a chance to show their stuff.

    Yeh nice that they are developping a new game.

    But this is known for a long time. I thought this was the first game to be distributed on the new wii ware channel

    That is a very nice idea. It will allow a lot of new developers to come forth and show off their talents. Anyway, thanks for the info.
