Cubemen 2 arrives on the Wii U eShop on September 4th
Aussie indie developers (and now publishers) Nnooo have announced that the 3 Sprockets developed Cubemen 2 for the Wii U finally has a release date.
You won’t have to wait long either as the game is just mere weeks away on September 4th. The game’s price has also been revealed at AUD$10.49 here in Australia and USD$7.99 / €7.99 / £6.99 for everywhere else.
Cubemen 2 is the first independently developed game that features user generated content and cross platform play. That’s right you can play against people on the PC, Linux, Mac and iOS devices.
“Cubemen 2 is not just a fantastic game, it’s breaking new ground for an indie game on a Nintendo console,” said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. “We already know Nintendo players love to create and share amazing artwork and creations in Miiverse. Now they can create levels, share them and battle with other players across multiple platforms! This is great, not only for Nintendo gamers, but for gaming in general.”
Because the game has been out elsewhere on other platforms there are now over 8000 user generated levels to play thanks to the other platform players being so creative.
“It’s been fantastic working with Nic and Bruce at Nnooo and Nintendo to get Cubemen 2 ported over to Wii U,” said Seon Rozenblum, Director at 3 Sprockets. “It’s such a great console to develop for and it’s a blast to see Cubemen 2 up and running on the TV. The mix of touch and Wii U GamePad controls is a perfect fit for the fast multiplayer gameplay. This has also been our first experience working with a publisher and the guys at Nnooo have been awesome to work with, allowing us to focus on the development side with total confidence that everything else was being taken care of for us.”
We can’t wait to check it out, and to destroy all those people playing on a mobile phone.
