It's like they were reading our minds
UK publisher Ripstone has already worked with download game developers such as Nifflas to bring us Knytt Underground on Wii U, while Pure Chess is on the way to both Wii U and 3DS. The publisher is continuing to target the home console's store, however, with confirmation today that Zoink's Stick It To The Man is coming to the Wii U eShop this Spring.
This is a title that has certainly caught the eye on Steam and PSN before now, with its charming paper-based aesthetic and a comedic, wacky storyline. An adventure with point-and-click inspiration that also has elements of platforming and stealth, it aims to entertain as well as challenge — with its humorous art-style and the writing talent of Ryan North (who works on the Adventure Time comic) it may deliver just that. It's also confirmed that there'll be features unique to Wii U, with the mind-reading mechanic appearing through a separate view on the GamePad screen.
Below is a launch trailer from last year to give you a taste of what the game will offer, and we'll publish an interview with both Ripstone and Zoink this coming weekend.
