George Paz of Psychoz Interactive took to Twitter to announce that the indie developer is now an authorized Wii U developer and will be bringing its upcoming survival horror title, Forgotten Memories, to the eShop. Paz expressed interest in becoming a Wii U developer back in March. The game, which is being developed using the Unity engine, is also in development for iOS.
Paz enthusiastically declared:
I'm proud to announce that we are now Nintendo licensed developers! Forgotten Memories will be our first title on the Wii U!— Georges Paz (@tatoforever) April 23, 2013
Nintendo has been very supportive of independent ("indie") developers since the launch of the Wii U. One of its key strategies has been the licensing of the Unity engine, which has allowed for developers of all shapes and sizes to bring content to the Wii U eShop.
Are you excited that another indie developer is working on the Wii U? Let us know in the comments section.
