Ackkstudios Kickstart Their Wii U Development Career With Two Brothers
Indie developer Ackkstudios have announced this week that they will be developing games for the Wii U and have already announced their first title, Two Brothers, which will be coming to the Nintendo eShop in 2013.
The retro-style game, which has captured the nostalgic GameBoy look perfectly, takes a top down approach not too dissimilar to the one taken by The Legend of Zelda and sees you take the role of Roy Guarder who’s out on a quest to return colour to the current monochrome world.
Two Brothers has already been confirmed for Xbox 360, PC, OSX, Linux, iOS and Android and will now find itself on the Wii U. The game is currently in the very early stages of development for Nintendo’s new console so may come out later than the other versions.
The whole thing began as a small Kickstarter project raising a massive $16,257 when Ackkstudios only aimed to achieve $6,000! Pretty impressive stuff! Seems this indie developer, which currently employs 17 members of staff, could well be on the up!
Ackkstudios describe the game as a reminder of a lost era while enjoying the lack of limits modern consoles offer:
“The game is meant to remind people of the GameBoy era of games without strictly adhering to the limitations of the system as this game is developed for modern technology.”
