Barcelona-based indie developer Rainy Night Creations have announced that they have become the latest studio to become an officially licensed developer for the Wii U. Their first announced project for Nintendo’s current generation console will be the 90’s inspired platformer FreezeME. The game has been in development since the studio was formed in 2012.
FreezeME is a A 3D platformer in the style of the N64-era but wait there is a twist! “R” the main character, has one special tool – the camera around her neck. This camera allows her to literally freeze the objects she photographs.
The protagonist of FreezeMe is “R,” a brown-eyed moppet with a camera around her neck. R is hot on the trail of her best friend, “M,” who has been abducted by the dastardly Fat the Cat. Fat the Cat longs to create what he describes as a “Free-Dog-World,” and exactly how kidnapping M will help him with this goal remains something of a mystery, but R is determined to thwart him by rescuing M from his clutches.
To enter Fat the Cat’s isolated lair, where M is being held, R needs a special key. The key can only be forged from pieces of an ancient material, which are yellow cubes. As R collects the pieces of ancient material, she will unlock new areas, and ultimately find enough pieces to assemble the key and enter the final boss’s lair to save her friend.
The studio plan to launch a Kickstarter soon to help raise the final funds needed for development. Stay tuned to Nintendo Enthusiast for more information as it breaks.
