The first brush with WarioWare for Max

If you've hit a plateau with your game-making inspiration in WarioWare: DIY for DS, Nintendo's next series of downloadable minigames might put the spark back into your ideas.

A string of WiiWare developers will be bringing their ideas to life in the coming weeks, kicking off on Friday with a game from Max and the Magic Marker developers Press Play. After that, Fabian Akker of Swords and Soldiers gets in on the action with the game 'Om Nom Noms!' that sees you filling the mighty warrior Redbeard with meat.

Two Tribes release a Toki Tori minigame on December 3rd, followed by Manfred Linzner of Shin'en on December 10th, whose game will feature Jett from Jett Rocket. After that it's the turn of Felix Bohatsch, the man behind And Yet It Moves, with the promise of a "fast and simple" minigame.

The minigames will continue on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve with two games from the same developer, though Nintendo isn't saying who. Gaijin Games, Frontier, Nicalis – whose microgame would you like to play most?
