Sanuk Games unsure if Wii U eShop is a "worthwhile market", suggests Nintendo explore free-to-play

"While Nintendo has made some commendable (and desperately-needed) strides with the Wii U eShop in comparison to their preceding download service, Yan Marchal of Sanuk Games believes there's more to be done." (Dev, Industry, Nintendo, sanuk games, Wii, Wii U)

I would be much more open to this developer's suggestions if I actually knew who this developer was and why they're making a game called "Spot the Differences."

Don't be so dismissive... Many of us have literally been on the edges of our seats waiting for a Spot The Difference game ;)

Truthfully,
I've played way more hours of games like that than I care to mention.

Especially, the find the "Clue" in the Clutter or Stack of Garbage games. I always start off by saying, "nice title" then "Crap, it's just one of those types of games again, how many are there?" then hours pass by-

Somehow, when the time limit of the free-trail ends I snap-out of the spell, however.

Nintendo has multiple free to play games already on the Wii U, and most devs have praised the eShop. What is this guy smoking?

Yeah the eShop is not bad I pick up games when I can : )

The eShop is functional, I can find the new games and purchase them but they really need to sort out the layout... Sort out the categories, make them more prominent, you have to scroll down through two screens of banner adverts to drill down into the games. Have a separate category for DLC as well as it's not announced *anywhere* as far as I can see - it's all pretty clunky and leaves the user to do much of the heavy lifting.

Please read the full article!
I was misquoted in the title. I asked the writer to change it but he refused, citing his company editorial policies.

I am not pessimistic about the Wii U eShop. I am hopeful it will bring opportunities to smaller indy studios.

And I know free-to-play does exist on the Wii U.

Thanks!

Thanks! It's somewhat typical of N4G that somebody downvoted your post when you're (quite literally) "the horses mouth" and came here to clarify your statement.

Personally I think the eShop *could* be the ideal place for Indy studios, if Nintendo can sort out the layout. Your game might have prominence in the eShop today, but in a week or two I fear it will be just get lost in the myriad of other titles available.
