WayForward on Boy and His Blob, DSi Development and More

WayForward on Boy and His Blob, DSi Development and More on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

WayForward recently discussed their forthcoming project, with new details on A Boy and His Blob, and Wii/DS development.

The studio's main focus is on the new Boy and His Blob as a disc release, alongside 2 unannounced Wii titles, and a dark DSi release full of "teenagers dieing and serials killers".

  • WayForward's response to "why now?" with a Boy and his Blob is a "why not?", with the studio enjoying the different abilities and original gameplay.
  • The game is "huge", and wouldn't be suitable for a digital release due to high colour backgrounds and animation. That said WayForward are fans of WiiWare and digital distribution.
  • Game uses Wii Remote and nunchuck combo, classic and possibly the GameCube controller. There's no IR or motion control support.
  • No other versions of Boy and his Blob are in production, but WayForward would like to take the series further.
  • Original VC release for the NES version depends on Majesco.

    For details on Wii/DS development, future plans and more, be sure to check out the full interview at WayForward.

    Still recon this wont sale much, and after the retail/distro cut nothing much will be left.

    WiiWare...in eppisodes if nesscery...would work much better, imho.

    i somewhat agree with dflame.

    a lot of people have grown out of the 8 bit era, let alone a boy and his blob which didn't ripple the waters as a top 10 NES game.

    i don't mind remakes, as long as the remakes include remaking the gameplay or physics and mechanics...this looks the same...beans, blob-morphing, beans. lol

    i see this going bubble bobble route, not so good. (and i loved bubble bobble nes)

    -make it count- Hey if you wanna play Wii Games with me, check out my game portion of my profile and pm me if you wanna add me so I can add you!

    This can sell. What we need is a lot of advertisement because this style also appeals to the new audience. They just need to be strategic and promote this game.
