Nintendo made a lot of noise yesterday about upcoming releases, so some stuff probably got lost in the shuffle. Admittedly, some of it probably should have...
But Night Games, a WiiWare exclusive title developed by Cave Story developer Nicalis, should not. The title is a nominee for a 2009 Independent Games Festival Seumas McNally Award (say that five times fast), so you know what that means -- it's nothing like, say, Killzone 2.
What it does look like is a gorgeous and atmospheric experience that has a similar look and feel to Nicalis' other titles. That is to say it looks incredible, of course. The gameplay appears to involve using physics to push a glowing sphere throughout the world.
