GamesIndustry.Biz writes: "Frontier is an independent UK developer founded by Elite co-author David Braben that developed games such as Dog's Life, two Wallace and Gromit titles and the Thrillville franchise published by LucasArts. It is also working on a new IP for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC called The Outsider.
More significantly, the company is hoping that its WiiWare game LostWinds will be a launch title when the service hits North America in May. We caught up with Frontier's managing director David Walsh who was showing the game off at Nintendo's media summit last week to ask him about the origin of the title, his thoughts on WiiWare and the company's desire to chart new territory.
GamesIndustry.biz: Theoretically, if Sony comes out with a similar controller for the PS3 - or if Microsoft produces one for the Xbox 360 -would you be interested in getting LostWinds on their systems as well? It isn't an exclusive for Nintendo is it?
David Walsh: The deal isn't exclusive. The idea came from years ago when we first saw the Wii control. Nothing has been specifically signed for the Wii. But, clearly, anybody with a pointing device - it would work, no problem at all."
