"The Most Powerful Engine Available For Wii"

Posted by Sammy Barker

It's been a bit "will it, won't it" with Nibris' psychological thriller "Sadness" ever since it was announced in April 2006 but according to Official Nintendo Magazine the game is running on "the most powerful engine available for [the] Wii". Blimey.

After the new screenshot which emerged last week we've all been waiting for the next twist in the Sadness saga given that Nintendo explained that the game "didn't exist" earlier this year.

Well apparently it does exist again. And it's running on "the most powerful engine available for Wii" (I keep quoting that to build up your hopes so you'll be more disappointed when it's announced the game is canned; again).

Official Nintendo Magazine report:

Sadness is the first Wii game to be presented in black & white which will no doubt add to the atmosphere of this crime-noir adventure set prior to the outbreak of World War I. For this unique, atmospheric adult-themed game, Nibris needed something special and Tomasz Wisniowski, Project Manager of Nibris, reckons he's found it with Gamebryo: "We will have quite a few graphical effects in our game, which some believe are impossible to attain on the Wii. Gamebryo helped make it possible. We are firmly convinced we made the right choice."

So it's gonna be innovative, look gorgeous and generally change the world right?

Geoffrey Selzer, CEO of Emergent (the producers of the Gamebryo engine) says the new horror game "is designed to push the bounds of Wii technically and creatively."

How come no one knows anything about it then?

Boy, if these guys don't deliver something now they're never going to get work in this industry again. These are some pretty bold claims.

Awesone news, finally the third parties will be start to pushing the Wii hardware to the limit, I'm sure that the Wii with the correct game engine will be reach the Xbox360 and Ps3 graphics.
And this will be the STANDARD for the next Wii games.
Congratulations NIBRIS!!!!!

Guys this game is an absolute waste of time. I dont understand why it has been so badly overhyped when we've seen nothing but a few concept shots of the game with no real indication of what the engine looks like or how the game plays.
