Seems a bit of a strange name to call your company, but Nnooo is an Australian developer who has announced details of a new WiiWare title, escapeVektor: Chapter 1 that’s due to be shown at this years GDC.
Nnooo class it as a ‘retro styled arcade game’ where the idea of the game is to control Vektor and help him escape from a Wii, yes, that’s right, Vektor is trapped inside a Wii and your task, should you choose to accept it, is to get him out of there.
“We wanted to bring back some of the simplicity and style of the old arcade games but with a modern twist”, said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. “For some of us, it will be like reliving our youth. We want this to feel like a blast from the past with cool, stylized graphics and a great sound track.”
It’s actually the CPU Vektor is trapped in and by avoiding the enemies who have individual hunting styles as the game progresses, you can use your skills and expanding abilities to defeat them and make your way out. What makes this game that bit more unique is the way opening up old code and memories give Vektor new abilities in order to escape from the clutches of the evil CPU, MWAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA… ahem.
“This is very different from Spirit Hunters Inc, the other game we currently have in development”, said Watt. “It’s great to be working on 2 projects with such contrasting styles. Although they are very different games, one thing escapeVektor does have in common with Spirit Hunters Inc is a planned Nintendo 3DS™ version. Keep an eye on our website www.nnooo.com for future updates.”
