NintendoeShop developers no longer need a separate office photo



In an interview with Gamasutra, Nintendo's Dan Adelman says that the company has dropped its office requirement for developers, which was devised to help keep confidential materials secure.

In Adelman's own words: "...more and more people are working from home, and we recognize that developers are forming virtual teams around the world. I know we've shied away from talking about these things publicly in the past, so I'm glad that I can officially confirm that the office requirement is a thing of the past."

Elsewhere in the interview, Adelman teases plans to introduce new tools "for developers to use HTML5 and JavaScript to make games. The thing I'm most excited about for this is how easy it is to prototype new game ideas to find the fun quickly and easily."

The full conversation is particularly worth reading for would-be eShop developers. It's taken some time to get the ball rolling, but I think we're starting to see the company's new approach pay off.

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...more

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...more
