Nintendo Attracts Indy Developers
Posted by Anthony Dickens
Small time start up developers such as "Twelve Interactive" are flocking over to Wii.
Although it might be safe for Sony and Microsoft to attract the multi-million dollar developments, it seems Nintendo's simpler and more innovative system is attracting the smaller developers, who often create something new.
"Leading Italian game developer, Twelve Interactive has announced that it has become a Nintendo Wii official developer. “ The Nintendo Wii is a perfect console to work on for small independent developers like us. It give us the opportunity to work on triple A games, with very reduced budget ”, commented Giuseppe Crugliano, Managing Director and founder of Twelve Interactive. “ Crash Dummy Vs The Evil D-Troit Wii version (Published by Oxygen), will take full advantage of the innovative Wiimote and Nunchuck controllers, transforming the game experience in a fresh brand new experience.”
This is one of many small time developers singing the praises of Wii, this marks a complete turn around for Nintendo whom saw alot of criticism 10 years ago with its "hard to code for" systems and exceedingly high royalties, seems Nintendo is learning its lesson.
