This is a weird one, but it's coming from XSEED so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Drill Sergeant Mindstrong is a title coming to WiiWare next month. With a militaristic theme, players have to answer questions correctly to keep the sergeant's fury in check. If you fail too many of them, he'll punish you by making you perform some sort of ridiculous and humiliating task.

I will say that it's an interesting spin on the minigame genre. Think about it, minigames as actual punishment for the player instead of just the reviewers who have to play them and then tell people not to bother buying it. All a bit bittersweet if you ask me.

The screenshots look pretty wretched, though. There's a couple more that XSEED sent out this morning and they have lackluster written all over them. They might as well have just had Mii support for all the effort developer HI Corporation seemed to put into the characters. There's also a press release following the jump you can check out. Or not. Whatever.

ATTEN-TION! XSEED Games Announces Drill Sergeant Mindstrong for WiiWare (Wii)

Brain Stimulating Party Game Will Make Even the Smartest, Toughest Cadet Go AWOL

 

Torrance, Ca., (April XX, 2009) -- XSEED Games today announced that Drill Sergeant Mindstrong, a brain stimulating party game, will soon be available for download on WiiWare. Drill Sergeant Mindstrong is XSEED Games’ first title available on Nintendo’s downloadable games service.

 

Welcome to the army, Maggots! As a newly-enlisted cadet, your brain will be challenged by the toughest Drill Sergeant around, to see if you are worthy to wear the camouflage, or if you should crawl home like a Princess. Once players enroll in boot camp, they must instantly choose between two modes of gameplay – ‘Focus Training’ and ‘Basic Training.’ Regardless of the path the new recruit chooses, they will suddenly be thrust into life as a lowly Private, playing a variety of brain-intensive mini-games to advance their brain power and rise up the food chain to Sergeant, Lieutenant General, and eventually Field Marshall.

 

Players be warned, however; Drill Sergeant Mindstrong is here to ensure your boot camp experience is everything but a walk in the park. When players fail to answer questions correctly or do not answer in a timely matter, the Drill Sergeant’s anger level will increase. Once his anger has reached its limit, the Drill Sergeant is not afraid to embarrass players by making them do punishments right there on the spot.

 

Drill Sergeant Mindstrong was developed by HI Corporation and is scheduled to be released in April 2009.
