High Voltage Software (HVS) has announced that The Conduit, a fast paced action-shooter game currently in development for the Wii™ console, will be featured by Nintendo at this year’s PAX convention. The Conduit is a First Person Shooter (FPS) where players battle fierce alien invaders in a highly detailed 3D world using a dynamic control scheme only possible on the Wii™.
Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer at HVS, had this to say about the news, “PAX is jam-packed wall-to-wall with passionate game fans. We are incredibly honored to be featured there at Nintendo's booth. It's a fantastic opportunity for us to receive input and feedback directly from other gamers.”
The Conduit made a big splash at this year’s E3 convention. HVS received numerous awards and press recognition, including IGN Best Shooter Game of E3 2008 (Wii™), IGN Best Graphics Technology of E3 2008 (Wii™), IGN Best Overall Wii™ Game of E3 2008, GameTrailers Best Wii™ Game of E3 2008, Edge Top 20 Games of E3 2008, and Gamepro 21 Wii™ Games to Drool Over.
Great news for High Voltage that Nintendo are taking note of their efforts so far. It's still unclear on when the game which actually be released, especially as the developer has still not signed a deal with a publisher. This might puzzle some people but according to High Voltage they wanted to design and develop the game with as little "publisher interference" as possible.
Let's hope it turns out for the best - more in a few weeks!
