Nicalis teases an all-new 1001 Spikes game

"The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..?

"I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
