An HD port on Switch, you say?
Although Nintendo maintains that the 3DS will be supported for the foreseeable future, it’s really only a matter of time before the handheld fades forever into the background. That’s why it was risky for Atooi to release Chicken Wiggle, a cute Super Mario Maker-like platformer, on the eShop so late in the game,...
Highlights over 400 levels to try out online
Chicken Wiggle has been an enjoyable recent arrival on the 3DS eShop, but the Atooi release has only had "very low" sales to date, as highlighted by the studio's Jools Watsham. When confirming its woes Watsham also said a discount would be coming to the game, and now there are full details. Chicken...
"I think the indie audience has left the 3DS and moved onto Switch"
Chicken Wiggle by Atooi is one of the most notable 3DS eShop releases in recent times, a retro-styled platformer with level creation and sharing tools. Despite the positive reputation of the developers - largely the former Renegade Kid team behind Mutant Mudds - the game has sold...
A rival to Super Mario Maker?
Jools Watsham's Atooi — formerly part of Renegade Kid — made quite a name for itself in the very early days of the 3DS eShop when it put out Mutant Mudds, a high-quality retro action platformer. It seems only fitting then that this splinter studio would put out a similar title here in the autumn of the life of the...
Chicken Wiggle is creeping ever closer to release on the 3DS eShop, an ambitious platformer from Atooi that'll have a full level editor for players to create and share their own stages. We've seen plenty of environments and item types already, but now Jools Watsham has shown us the 'Hero Mask', the first of five power-ups that will...
"I just winged it"
Earlier in the year Atooi founder Jools Watsham showed off the level creation tool in Chicken Wiggle, the upcoming 3DS eShop release. Beyond the core campaign there's the promise of access to a full creation suite that allows players to create levels and then share them online (in-game) with others. To showcase how it'll...
Made with the same level editor that's included in the game
Atooi, the studio led by Jools Watsham, is getting closer to its first major 3DS eShop release - with Chicken Wiggle. It's a game we've been following with interest due to it having the same core development team as Mutant Mudds; it'll also have an extensive level editor as part of the...
"Much thought has gone into the pricing of Chicken Wiggle"
Atooi's Chicken Wiggle is nearing release, and Jools Watsham has now revealed what the game will cost once it hits the 3DS eShop. Watsham had previously stated that Chicken Wiggle would cost $10, but since then he's been adding loads more content to the game and feels that a price...
Getting a wiggle on
Chicken Wiggle is a rather promising title from Atooi that's making its way to the 3DS eShop - from the same team that produced Mutant Mudds as part of Renegade Kid, it adopts that title's style while also introducing new ideas. The Chicken and Worm combo throws in some alternative controls and moves, while it also boasts a full...
Chicken Wiggle Maker?
Chicken Wiggle will be the first 3DS eShop game released by Atooi, the studio founded by Jools Watsham initially as a vehicle for personal mobile projects, and now his key business since the formal split of Renegade Kid. Early footage and screens have looked rather positive, incorporating the chunky pixel style that helped make...
An unlikely pairing, together at last
We recently reported on the disbandment of indie developer Renegade Kid and followed it up with an interview featuring both founding members, Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove. As part of their surprisingly amicable split, both devs have already formed new teams and star
"The future is bright, and I brought my sunglasses"
Earlier today Jools Watsham unveiled Atooi's first game since the closure of Renegade Kid, the well-known studio that he'd co-founded a decade ago. Though Totes the Goat was previously released on iOS as an Atooi title, there's nevertheless the sense that the newly announced Chicken Wiggle is a...
Includes a story mode and level sharing feature
Earlier this week it was confirmed that well-known indie developer Renegade Kid had closed, with co-founders Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove moving on to their own separate studios - Atooi and Infitizmo. Watsham previously released Totes the Goat on iOS under the Atooi name, and now has announced his...
