While the retail side of Wii U isn't so dandy right now, the system’s digital library continues expanding at an impressive rate with a lot of indie developers pouncing on the favourable opportunities to be had.

Part of the excitement is Arachnid Games' involvement, along with its side-scrolling shooter and platform game, Ballpoint Universe. The small-sized Californian team has now confirmed via its Facebook page that Ballpoint Universe will be released on the North American Wii U eShop on March 18th.

Ballpoint Universe is best described as an adventure game with immaculate attention to artistic detail – with the entire game being hand-drawn on paper with a ballpoint pen. The game stars a protagonist named Doodle who fights for creativity.

A release date outside of North America is yet to be announced. In the meantime, check out the trailer of Ballpoint Universe below and let us know your thoughts:
