iPhone adventure title 1112 might be headed to WiiWare

The iPhone adventure game 1112, which I can only describe as a Hotel Dusk-type point and click title that’s a bit full of itself, might be coming to WiiWare. The only hitch is the service’s 42MB file size restriction, says developer Alexandre Leboucher.

I share because I saw what happened to Zack & Wiki and I desperately want this genre to make a resurgence on the Wii.

    Wait, is it the same game they want to port over to WiiWare and it won’t fit, yet it’ll fit on an Iphone?

    Zack and Wiki may have been underwhelming saleswise, but my local Wal-Mart is still selling it over a year later. There are some first-party titles for which that’s not the case.

    @Jamie

    It says iPod Touch at the end of the video so you’re in luck :)

    This comment pertains to the Podcast #131 which I am listening to right now. Please don’t eat while recording, i beg of you :) Listening on headphones makes it like like sitting on your tongue as you chew your food.

    other than that, i thank you.

    Zack and Wiki is amazing but I think it might have been pretty stupid to make the game look like a kids cartoon since the challenge level indicates it’s not intended for small children. I know it works well when you play it and that it’s still a great game but that doesn’t matter if it won’t sell due to its looks.
    Most kids cartoons aren’t very entertaining to most adults and even if some are it’s not likely that we’ll find out since it’s portrayed as something that isn’t made for adults. If you have films as your hobby you might find out if there’s some who’re actually good but the general population will not.

    Well, Zack and Wiki was originally a Japanese game called Treasure Island Z, and Japanese adults don’t have the same insecurity about liking cartoons that most American adults do.

  8. Myst says:

    I don’t think it’s due to insecurity but rather because there are cartoons for the older crowd in Japan whilst there practically aren’t any in the west. There’s nothing to be had for adults from cartoons in general thus western people are not interested in them
