Nintendo’s SD card update announcement at GDC, evidently, has served more than us fans. Telltale Games recently sent out a press release stating that sales of Strong Bad’s Cool game for Attractive People have “more than doubled” since Iwata's good news at GDC.
Even better news: these increased sales have inspired Telltale Games to continue creating new games. Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games, said "this is a major step forward for episodic gaming. We're looking forward to even greater success on WiiWare with Strong Bad, as well as other projects."
What kind of projects are they planning on coming up with? Possibly picking up another iconic internet figure? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Good, people are keeping their word to buy stuff when a storage solution was made.
Atlantis: I'm also happy they're buying
Storage was never a problem with me, I transferred games to SD when I completed them, then bought a new game, I never had to have more than 5 at a time on the Wii menu myself.
I can has Wallace and Gromit, plz.
Or maybe bite sized chunks of Sam and Max, since it could spread the word about the games and get more people interested.
Since its on a disc already on Wii sam and max is unlikely
But I do hope for Wallace and Gromit!
Do a weebl and bob game! It could be full of cameo apearences such as catface and the parsley boobs couple!
Glad that developers are also happy with this storage solution XD
Yeah... It's just a shame Nintendo was too stupid to have this storage solution put in the DSi.... So now we get to deal with no memory all over again for probably another year. Yey!!!!
I'm glad the Strong Bad games are doing well. Maybe they should give Homestar his own game now. Another series i'd like to see is Bone (provided liscensing isn't the problem).
I don't like the strong bad games but this is good news for the wiiware service. However, this is NO suprise. This was obviously going to happen once a decent storage solution was intiated! The storage solution therefore should've happened sooner eh nintendo? Anyway, I'm not into the ultra-nicheness of this game but all power to you if you are.
I just want a wii with a big-ass harddrive and better ram and memory and stuff!
They can do the same thing on the dsi but right now they don't need to yet.
See Nintendo, you guys should have put a hard drive into Wii from day one.
YES! A second season would be awesome!
Awesome. Although Strong Bad wasn't as good Sam & Max (that would be pretty hard actually) the episodes still were very entertaining and funny. However, since the games are much cheaper for the PC (thanks to the low dollar course) I don't think I'm gonna download the next season on WiiWare.
I'd like to see some original Sam & Max mysteries on WiiWare, this is great that they want to continue working on the Wii
Not surprised. I I hadn't bought a wiivware game for like 2-3 months because of the storage problem, but now I don't have to worry about space anymore. Also, good for them.
Sam&Max are already on the wii but only NA
@LEGEND MARIOID: Of course it's not a surprise, but it's still good to hear it confirmed from a developer instead of being forced to just assume it.
@siavm: It won't be very bloody long before they DO need to, though, and it would have behooved Nintendo to avoid the problem coming up in the first place. I've downloaded a lousy TWO titles and already I'm out nearly a fifth of the darned thing's internal memory!
As far as Sam & Max Season 1 goes, I wouldn't advise ANYBODY to buy it. The technical problems in the game completely ruined the experience for me and I gave up in frustration after fighting my way through episode 2. I can tell it's a fun game, but I'd advise people to get the PC version, or maybe the upcoming Xbox Live Arcade version (assuming it's ported better than the Wii mess). If they fixed all the horrible glitches and put it on WiiWare, I'd say buy that if you have no other options.
I'm very glad the games are doing so well now, and even happier that they're planning to do more! Bring it on, Telltale!
Good for them!
