Adventure Thru 8-Bit Land is Another Wii U (exclusive) eShop Title From a New Developer

Barely a day passes at the moment without more download-only games being confirmed as in the works for the Wii U eShop, as Nintendo's indie-friendly policy continues to bear fruit. The store seems to be a destination for newcomers, too, with Adventure Thru 8-Bit Land currently in development by R & P Studios; it's planned as a Wii U eShop exclusive. (Adventure Thru 8-Bit Land, Nintendo, R&P Studios, Wii U)

This is a good trend to see. Nintendo needs to step in and produce some indie bundles for retail release so more people know about these games. If 3rd parties won't support, its just more opportunity for these indies to sell some games. The indies have been better than the majority of retail titles anyway. The only new game ideas are coming from the indie scene. Mainstream gaming is eating itself into oblivion with yearly releases and rip off dlc. Indies and Nintendo are doing all they can to keep gaming originality alive.

could not have said it better myself. after years of the same 3 game types and same grey colors its refreshing to look on the eshop and see color and something that isn't just shooting and sports.
