Co-founder Ryan Morrison talks about their soon-to-end Kickstarter, working with Nintendo, and his company's secret love for the retro classic Elevator Action.
Orion's Odyssey is an apt title for the latest title from independent developers Island Officials. The game took them two-and-a-half years to finish, and they spent an additional year looking for a publisher. Orion's Odyssey was originally meant to be a retail DS game, but due to the changing market the developer chose to release the game using crowdfunding through Kickstarter.
Their initial campaign for a traditional cartridge release fell short, but the game makers picked themselves up off the ground and started a new campaign, this time for a digital DSiWare and eShop release instead of a physical one.
Stay on target. Stay on target.

Was software support actually worse in the past with the N64 and GC?
Continued from "The Wii U and Objectivity"
[In response to an earlier argument Carmine made claiming the N64 was in a worse software position compared to the Wii U]
I hope your comparison to N64 is a joke. That system launched with Super Mario 64 and had Wave Race 64, Pilotwings 64, and Mario Kart 64 by this point, with Goldeneye 007 and Star Fox 64 coming in the first summer. That lineup dumps diarrhea over what we currently have on Wii U.
One of this year's biggest third party games could be arriving on a GamePad near you.
Call of Duty: Ghosts has been listed as coming to the Wii U on November 5 by Polygon and GameTrailers.
Though not officially confirmed by Activision, last year's Call of Duty title, Black Ops 2, was released on the Wii U.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is being developed Infinity Ward and follows a small group of elite soldiers, called Ghosts, after a large scale attack cripples the United States in the near future.
EA is not neglecting Nintendo's console after all.
Electronic Arts has confirmed that it does actually have Wii U games in development, correcting earlier statements that the publisher was not supporting the system.
At the recent Stifel Nicolaus Internet, Media and Communications conference, Blake Jorgensen, the chief financial officer of EA, said that the publishing giant would, in fact, be bringing new software to Wii U in the future, "but not anywhere near as many as [they] are for PS or Xbox".
It is unknown at this time exactly what these games are, though it was previously confirmed that neither FIFA 14 nor Madden 25 will be released on Nintendo platforms.

We're still hoping for localisation
Based on past form, official confirmation may take a while
In North America, anyway
Similar to moves by retailers in the UK
Blake Jorgensen, Electronic Arts's Chief Financial Officer, today stated that EA is indeed developing Wii U games. The news broke at the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference. This comes in direct contradiction of statements by EA's Jeff Brown last week, who said the company had "no games in development" for Wii U.
In the latest Cubed3 Plays video feature we tackle the sublime 2D puzzle/platformer from Two Tribes, Toki Tori 2.From Boom Blox to Michael Jordan: Chaos In The Windy City, the highs and lows of EA.
So EA are making Wii U games after all but what can we expect? Well, we already know that the likes of FIFA and Madden won't be appearing on Wii U and while people who don't like sport won't be fussed about that, we wouldn't mind seeing another Boom Blox-style game or a

Take to the seas once again as the latest chapter in the popular manga series One Piece has been confirmed for Nintendo 3DS.
Level-5 has announced an upgraded version of Fantasy Life after the success of the original 3DS release.
The stage was set earlier in the year for Sony to wow with the unveiling of its PlayStation 4, but all that really came to fore was a new controller that looks like a modified version of the same device seen since the PSone days. That then left the door open for Microsoft to stun the world with its successor to the Xbox 360. Did that happen with the new Xbox One, though? Or did the company merely confuse the masses with its ambition to be king of every market? This latest INSiGHT article attempts to take a closer look at some of the information released so far... "Microsoft unveils Xbox One: the ultimate all-in-one home entertainment system" was the headline of the official Press Release that the UK PR team sent to Cubed3 yesterday evening. However, some clarification was definitely required to understand exactly what is trying to be achieved with this new hardware. After all, the initial messages that were streaming onto forums across the Internet focused on how Xbox 360 games are not compatible with Xbox One, the used games market is to be hit hard, and sharing games with others is looking like becoming a thing of the past. Everything sounds very glamorous and glitzy when spoken by the public relations team, but then again that is exactly what they are paid for, so it is to be expected. Digging deeper into the spiel, it becomes clear that Microsoft wants to dominate all marketplaces, with plans to make the Xbox One the centrepiece for all people's games, TV content, movies, music, sports, and even social interaction via Skype. The interesting point is that Nintendo Wii U has all those aspects covered already. Really? Well, yes. Nintendo might not have quite the advertising clout of the US giant, but TVii has launched across some territories already, there is support for the likes of Netflix and LOVEFiLM, there is video chat using the GamePad, and even a karaoke service is hitting Japan soon, with more applications promised in future updates.NEWS: Iwata Asks: Game & Wario Originally Meant to Be Pre-installed on Wii U Preview | Read full story
Game & Wario was originally meant to be pre-installed on Wii U, but was bumped to a retail release after the game had 'too many ideas'
In another edition of Iwata Asks, our favorite Nintendo CEO sits down with Naoko Mori, Goro Abe, and Yoshio Sakamoto to discuss the upcoming Game & Wario. During the interview it's revealed that Game & Wario was originally going to be pre-installed on the Wii U, but they felt the game quickly outgrew what would be appropriate for a pack-in.
They also stated that it was decided not to make the game part of the WarioWare series because it wasn't in line with the "distinctive graphical style," of previous WarioWare titles. They went on to discuss many specifics about the individual games, such as the twenty-two microgames featured in 'GAMER' and a mode called 'Miiverse Artwork' in which players are asked to choose one of four random subjects to draw a picture of, then after a one minute time limit it is automatically uploaded to the Miiverse community. Also mentioned were the 240 prizes obtainable via in-game tokens.
The fourth title in Sega's "Reprint Project" is revealed.
3D Jūōki, or 3D Altered Beast, is coming to the Nintendo 3DS next week on May 29 for 600 yen. Similar to previous titles released in the Sega 3D Fukkoku (Reprint) Project, Altered Beast offers an array of options including customizable controls, Japanese and English versions, the ability to save anywhere, and also a “classic” view mode that resembles a tube television with slight curvature. Simultaneous multiplayer through local play can also be utilized if gamers have two copies of the game. 3D Altered Beast is based on the Mega Drive (Genesis) version of the game.
Microsoft revealed their next system, and some staffers talked about their thoughts on it.
Regardless of what the masthead on this site reads, almost every staff member at Nintendo World Report still pays attention to Microsoft and Sony. As such, we all chatted about what we thought of Microsoft's Xbox One reveal. You are more than welcome to share your thoughts below as well. We didn't include the semantic discussion of how Call of Duty and Mario games are all the same to certain people. Be thankful for that. Or the discussion over how Alex thinks that the master race of console owners doesn't include an Xbox 360. I don't know; it got weird.
