Up Up Up the Wii U eShop (to #2!)

Up Up Up Nintendo Wii U eShop

A Christmas miracle! Against all expectations, Little Inferno, the weird-little-game-that-could, has been steadily moving up the American Wii U charts, up to slot #3 #2 as of today – just ahead of New Super Mario, amazingly. What’s up there anyway? We hope to find out…!

Nintendo Life has just posted some of our initial thoughts on Nintendo’s Wii U eShop, and you can read similar thoughts from other developers here. To summarize, though, indie developers have good things to say about the service, and (my favorite thing) the MiiVerse seems to be well loved. The new year should bring even more indie games, including Runner 2.

  1. That’s awesome! I’m glad it’s doing so well for you guys. I was wondering how sales were going, and I guess this answers my question. Best of luck to you guys! Here’s hoping you’re going to #1 soon (Even though Trine 2 is a great game as well)! :)

    Trine and NSMB:U both have some competition! :p

    Big new reviews:

    “The game might be hopeful, ultimately. It’s hard to tell. The snow keeps falling, and you can either escape or reconcile yourself. By the time I stopped playing, several hours had gone by and my living room looked unfamiliar. That’s art”
    http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2013/01/07/little-inferno-review-sit-by-the-fire-and-hear-a-story/

    “The flame effects are fantastic; it’s a genuinely beautiful game at times, and there’s a rich sense of humour running through the proceedings.”
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/video-games/video-game-reviews/9785054/Little-Inferno-review.html

    And I also liked this one:

    “[C]ompletely freed from cynicism or biting criticism against game design criminals as Zynga, — Little Inferno says: We do click on cows and order Farmville fields because they excite something in us. Because it gives us, give at least a short time, something that gives us joy, appears important to us. But one thing they can’t do: bind with the player with their simple methods forever. They are ablaze, as long as they are new and colorful and fun. And shortly thereafter, they are little more than ashes on the chimney altar of the latest home fireplace entertainment product.” http://superlevel.de/spiele/indie-spiele/little-inferno/ (Translation: Google)

    Hi guys, I’ve just finished playing Little Inferno and I found it awesome.
    I’m graduating this year in Computer science and I’d like to know some of the tools that you guys used to create this amazing game.
    Hope your game spread all over the wolrd.
    Regards, Lucas.

    Hi, I’m sorry for being impatient, but could you please release the game on the app store today???

    I just can’t wait any longer for the apple app store version.

    Hurry, hurry, hurry!!!

    Thanks…Finchy from the U.K

    You should make the novelty mouse pad( the one you get after you get all the combos) an actual item to buy. That would be awesome to have on my desk!

  18. DOC86RUS says:

    Many people already look forward this game. You let out this game for Android and iPhone, and it is possible and for Windows Phone, but in community still there were users of Symbian OS and they too want this game (as well as World of Goo which didn’t leave for Symbian), whether you let out this game for this operating system?
