Remember the Amazing Rolo and his Wii Loop Machine?

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nutty digital artist Yann Seznec popped up on popular British TV show, Dragons Den, looking for investors for his Wii Loop Machine business.

We featured the Wii Loop Machine sometime last year, it looked like a pretty good idea at the time and clearly the developer is trying to move things along.

Look out, Miyamoto. A Scottish independent games developer has devised some Wii software that trumps upcoming rhythm game Wii Music – and isn’t letting a failed attempt to secure investment on BBC’s Dragon’s Den discourage him.

Yann Seznec appeared on the BBC business show last month, demonstrating his software Wii LoopMachine, but didn’t excite the VC ‘dragons’ enough because he’s an independent trying to crack the traditional publishing scene.

But Seznec has since told Develop that he is undeterred by comments from millionaires like Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden and Theo Paphitis and will find a way to get his game to market, having already been courted by a number of publishers and developers.

Brilliant - For those of you that didn't catch the show, you can watch his appearance on YouTube:

Unlucky, Dragons were not interested at all!
