The Wii U Version Of Tengami Is Complete, Age Ratings And Lot Check Still Pending

Posted by Damien McFerran

Looking good on paper

The Wii U version of puzzle adventure title Tengami is now complete and ready to be submitted to Nintendo's Lot Check process, according to developer Nyamyam.

The news was posted on the studio's official blog:

The version is finished (yay!!!) and we are preparing to go into Lotcheck, Nintendo’s certification process that is required for all games before they are allowed to go on sale. Before that can happen we have to get age ratings for Tengami though. The game is with the various rating organizations around the globe and it is really just a matter of waiting now. The process can take up 3 weeks and there is unfortunately not much we can do to speed it up.

The release of the game has slipped ever so slightly — we were previously told it would arrive in June. Tengami has already launched successfully on iOS, and a PC release is expected in August.

We're sure the wait will be worth it, and in the meantime, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Nyamyam here.

I still don't know what to think of this game. I do however like the art style. I'll have to wait for reviews to form an adequate opinion.

Well the reviews on ios seem to be all over the place. I know buttons will make a difference but from what I'm seeing of the main game is it's beautiful but shallow. Maybe if the price is right but I got a feeling a sale will be in order.

I hope there's more content added to the WiiU version. That being said, ignore the reviews which criticise the game for not having challenge. It doesn't, but it's not the kind of game which you enjoy by feeling challenged.



Tsurii said:

That was kind of an interactive story, right? Another of those "art games" then..I have to see more of it/a review before I'll decide to buy it, I guess.



Spoony_Tech said:

@Jollykarp I seen a review that actually stated the opposite and said a couple of the puzzles were unfair which I'm taking it as impossible to figure out. Now that just also could be one reviewers play through.

Love the art style. This has been on my radar since day one. Being my age it reminds me a lot of the collection of pop up books that I had when I was a kid. And the whole Asian setting makes it even more interesting to me and it's something different altogether from every other puzzle adventure that you see out there so as far as I am concerned this is one title to look out for.

I'm dying to get this game, it just looks too good to pass up. I don't really have a clear idea how the gameplay works, but I'll still buy it

I want to like this game but I can't. Just looks boring. Maybe the review will say different.



ULTRA-64 said:

Errrrrrr...I do LIKE this but....when would I 'play' it though!?! So unknown I can't write it off!



ToxieDogg said:

People saying the game looks empty and boring....the same could be said about 'Journey' on PS3, and that turned out to be one of the most critically acclaimed games of 2012.

Possibly this is one of those games where the atmosphere and experience are as important as the gameplay? Too early to say until it's released and reviewed but it does look like it could potentially be something special to me.

EDIT: I didn't realise it was already out on iOS, I don't follow the mobile gaming scene at all.

I'm interested, but will wait for some Wii U reviews. The Wise soundtrack may make it worth it no matter what.

Boring suggests this may not be the game for you.
How many people on here have children?
How many have paid 3-5$ for a simple storybook that can be read by any literate adult in 10-20 seconds?
This game is the interactive adult version of that.
It was never and will never be the run around, kill everything, high score fest you expect from video games.
Because that isn't the point. I finished this title on my partner's iPhone in about 2 and a half hours. And I never felt shorted at the end.
I wouldn't be surprised if dozens more games in the interactive storybook genre started popping up. I would be surprised if handfuls of speed obsessed gamers don't pop-up, bashing Tengami for its length.



NodesforNoids said:

From Nyamyam's description, I'd be shocked to see Tengami out this month, which likely means Teslagrad and Assault Android Cactus will be joining this in August, Pier Solar will drop this month and New N' Tasty will see eShop light around September.

Super short, more expensive game on Wii U with mediocre reviews. I was interested, but now I'll pass.



Sean_Aaron said:

I don't expect a challenge from this, I expect something beautiful to look at and relaxing to play and I can't see why they wouldn't deliver.
