The Adventures Of Dash Could Be Hitting The Wii U eShop

Posted by Damien McFerran

"We hope to bring it to the Wii U as quickly as possible"

Platform puzzle romp The Adventures of Dash could be bound for the Wii U eShop, according to developer Robotoki.

A Kickstarter to fund the game has just launched, and although the Wii U isn't currently getting a version, that will change if the campaign is successful:

We are already licensed Nintendo developers and have Wii U dev kits that we'll be using to get it up and running on Wii U. If we get funded we will try to bring it to as many platforms as possible with the funds we get and will use the profits from the game to bring it to consoles we couldn't afford prior. Long story short, yes, we hope to bring it to the Wii U as quickly as possible.

Robotoki — a studio led by former Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling — have to reach $400,000 to get the funding, and have currently raised just over $20,000 with 26 days to go.

Interestingly, by pledging $1,000 you'll get SNES and NES mock-up editions of previous Dash titles — entirely fictional ones, sadly.

If this sounds like the kind of project you'd like to get behind, pledge some support and post a comment below to tell us.

Looks like it is going to be an interesting game. I wish the Wii U support was going to be there from the start. I would pledge to get the 8-bit and 16-bit carts.

400k?? Does this mean they would already be making a profit before the game is published to the respective platforms?? So the gamers are paying for all their licensing and hardware needs?

I actually think that the whole Kickstart thing could fill a very specific place in Indie development going forward. It puts an end to fan-bases promising to "buy a particular game if it ever made it to their system" and then backing out when it comes time to put their money where their mouth is.

i wish one of the rewards was to guaranteed a WiiU copy. I would hate to back it and not get a Wii U copy. I have no interest to play on my mac or even on mobile

kid chameleon inspired, i caught that, and the nes and snes carts are not functional?
that will fit with all the other nes and snes games in some peoples collections that are too dirty to boot up.

Since the word adventures is in quotes, I guess there isn't really much of an adventure at all.

I would pledge but I don't want to pledge monies then have to buy it again on Wii U so I hope it reaches its goal so I can one day buy it on Wii U.

I knew this game would be considered for the Wii U! Thank goodness! I really want to get this game, it looks so interesting with his sleeping problems and many different dreams. Please bring to Wii U!

Unfortunately I don't want to back this unless it is guaranteed to come to the Wii U, but others probably feel the same way and will hold off on funding until then, which could then cause the game to not get the funding needed to make it to the Wii U. : This is the one thing that's bothering me about Kickstarter lately.

This is the direction developers should go. Think outside the box and create your own journey.

Adventures if Dash looks to be one of the better games coming out and I'm definitely excited.

This looks like it could be great fun. There's nothing funny about narcalepsy though. Yet they seem to find it hilarious. Kinda disgusting to tell you the truth.

This game reminds me of a kids show or story where he falls asleep and has adventures. I don't recall the name.



Henmii said:

Lol, I guess it's inspired by one of the earliest Hal laboratories games found on the nes. The Avgn did a episode about it, you can find it on youtube!



Smug43 said:

Sounds like it could be really disconnected with all these different art styles etc.. how is this game going to feel cohesive?




This is day dreaming davie hardcore edition, even though I love hal mainly for kirby games, they kinda dropped the ball with that game. I really hope this time a dreaming sequence game is done right by this company.
