Most of the time, even in Nintendo's most successful Wii U titles like Mario Kart 8, the gamepad is just an overly large controller that offers nothing substantively different from any other controlling device.

Nommons: Calcuquest, an upcoming math-based RPG aimed mainly at younger gamers and coming exclusively to the Wii U, is one of those rare games that actually embraces the wonderful weirdness of the gamepad.

It certainly does. I'm sure the indie crowd is working on more.

I love the gamepad, and I think it has been used well in the past. It is hard for even Nintendo to figure out what to do with it at times though.

This game looks cute and quite fun! I'm not mathematician or anything, but my favorite subject in school was always math. May pick it up if it turns out pretty good.
