iPhone hit 1112 possibly headed for WiiWare

If they can squeeze it in

Product: 1112 episode 01 | Developer: Agharta Studio | Genre: Adventure
For: iPhone
 
1112 episode 01 iPhone, thumbnail 1
When 1112 was released on the iPhone last month it was like a (touchscreen activated) breath of fresh air. Ostensibly an adventure game, Agharta Studio’s oddball masterpiece took delight in making you carry out a host of mundane tasks on behalf of chief protagonist Louis Everett.

Now developer Alexandre Leboucher has revealed that he has received a preliminary approach about porting the game to Nintendo’s ever-popular Wii console. He feels that the controls would port well to the console’s motion-sensitive remotes, but there is one major drawback.

The sticking point appears to relate to size - at present WiiWare titles are limited to just 42 megabytes of storage, which is about a third of the space the original iPhone game required.

So, not only is a game set to be ported from a fledgling handheld device to Nintendo's behemoth, but it'll actually have to be downscaled in the process. What a world.

Still, if the developers can overcome that not insignificant hitch we could see it flying off the digital shelves.
