There is a much deeper point I'd like to make about the release of this game. Beyond the look and appeal of this game, Eduardo represents something very important about the gaming industry. Since the release of WiiWare and the growing popularity of XBox Live Arcade, a new era of Independent game development has started to surface. Up until recently, the chance of an indie game company making a game for a major system like Nintendo was next to impossible. Here you have four guys who put out an exceptional game from what I understand was an extremely low budget. The fact that they even were able to get it up on WiiWare means that innovation and expression are now possible for anyone who has a passion for games. Unless we take the time to appreciate and support indie developers like Semnat, this opportunity will vanish before our eyes. It's the same for any industry where independent companies struggle to get their voice out. This isn't just a small, okay looking shooter with no back story. This game represents the tables turning in the market in OUR favor. I, for one, want to support that. Fight the Man.

HOT-ROD brings up a great point. 8 bucks is cheaper than 6 pack of decent beer and that goes thru you in less time than it takes to play this game. Eduardo is clearly geared toward a group of friends looking for something they can all enjoy together and have a great time sharing. Isn't that the point of WiiWare? Surely that's worth paying the miniscule $8. Cheap-o's.
