Posted by Corbie Dillard
Ed Roman, CEO of Ghostfire Games, has just sent out a press release announcing that their new WiiWare rhythm title Helix is coming to the US WiiWare service this coming Monday August 25th. You can check out the press release below and you can also check out the telephone interview we did with Ed back in June.
Austin, TX (August 21st 2008) – Ghostfire Games™ announced today that Helix™, a music rhythm game, will be released this coming Monday August 25th on the WiiWare™ service for the Wii™ console.
Ed Roman, CEO of Ghostfire Games, had the following to say: “We’re extremely excited to release Helix™ to the general public. Its one of the most innovative music rhythm games ever designed. You use the Wii Remote™ controllers to do over 30 upper body moves while listening to fast-paced music. You do all this while the backgrounds (and the Wii Remote™ controllers) pulse to the beat.”
“Helix is not only fun, it’s a great workout. You can really burn some calories playing this game. You tend to lose yourself playing the game and forget that you’re even getting a workout, because the gameplay is compelling.”
“We listened to thousands of songs and narrowed it down to the 26 you find in this game. These 26 tracks are amazing and come from independent musicians that you won’t find elsewhere. It’s the type of music you want to hear over and over again because it’s so good. We’ve included over 26 songs to play, so the replay value is absolutely incredible for 1000 Wii Points™.”

We'll have a full review of Helix shortly after it hits the WiiWare service on Monday.
