  • News Medaverse Talk WiiWare On Business TV

    Way back in February we did an interview with Medaverse Studios about their upcoming WiiWare game Gravitronix. Since then it’s all been a bit quiet from them on the news front, with little new news about the game.

An updated video has since been released by the ex-Rockstar employees at PheroseSoft showing more in-game footage.

    There is no doubt that the upcoming World of Goo is one of the better looking games coming to the WiiWare service.

    So who is the genius behind the artwork in World of Goo? None other than 2D..
