Ostrich Island Being Considered for Wii U

Ostrich Island Being Considered for Wii U on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Ostrich Island is a unique mix between an adventure (explore islands and search for collectibles) and a platformer (jump over dangerous waters, run and kick stuff), with a slight hint of role-playing game (level up and gain new abilities). It comes from the mind of Finnish developer Yaroslav Bakh of MeDungeon Games and is currently in the process of securing extra funding via a campaign on Indiegogo before its planned 'End of 2012' release date.

Presently, Ostrich Island is planned for Windows, Mac, and Linux for a price of 5 Euros / US$6.50, but MeDungeon Games today informed Cubed3 that should the crowdfunding initiative prove successful, there are plans to bring the game to Wii U in some form, most likely via the eShop.

Below is a beta version of the game, along with preliminary details on the features included:


 

  • The ostrich gains experience points and upgrades with new skills and abilities;
  • Lots of collectibles and hidden bonuses. Once discovered they can be closely examined in the bird's nest;
  • Two difficulty levels: "Relaxing," where players can slowly investigate the islands, searching for collectibles with nothing to worry about, and "Escape," where constantly rising water levels add some stress but increase score multipliers in return;
  • Global leader board and country scoreboards across all platforms.

Yeeaaahh....this game looks a lIIIIIIITtle to weird to support. Might be better if this one never finishes.

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

I like it - quirky is good in my eyes and I'd certainly not dismiss it outright, especially if it's planned at such a cheap price.

Now, if only DK characters were atop the ostrich! Smilie

Kevin Macleod does the music? The guy from incompetech who has all of his music licensed under creative commons? I hope they didn't just use that website for all their music and sound effects.
