strangers_wrath_hd

Just Add Water CEO and Oddworld Inhabitants development director Stewart Gilray has said that Nintendo has been a fantastic company to work with. Gilray says that the development team behind Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD have had absolutely no issues working with the company to bring the game to the Wii U.

“Indeed, their developer relations man is a fan of the franchise so reached out to us to ask for that title specifically, that’s where the discussions started. In terms of what are they like to work with, they’re fantastic. I’ve NEVER had a problem with working with Nintendo in respect of their people and teams, it’s been a case of a problem in terms of the hardware and indeed the lack of a competent digital outlet, until now.”

Thanks, Maria

  1. Further proof that these Indie Tribes and smaller Empires have no problem making great games for our sacred machine…

    High Command knows that they are the future of gaming and our enemies will fall just like the Atarians, Turbos, Commodores and Phillipses and so on…

    I can almost feel the destruction of the Electron Army…

          1. If I would say their Empire’s name it would be “The Turbonian Legion”…

            Atarian Armada…

            And so on…

            But the Turbos are a subspecies created by the Atarians…

                1. Dude all I have to say is this persona you have makes me laugh every time I see it. I read through the bullshit and see you are a fan, but way to have dedication to a persona. Not criticizing here at all, I honestly think you should start a YouTube channel. It would be hilarious.

                  1. I appreciate your nice comments…

                    A Youtube channel, that would be a sight wouldn’t it…

                    The fact that the Sonyans and Xbots “hate” the N-Dub Nation, they would not even tolerate my exalted Nintendo language…

                    1. Fuck them who cares. But you have to do it with a get up the looks like that Dark Pirate Trooper you have in that picture. Dude think about it. You just have to promote yourself like crazy

                          1. There’s a BIG difference between you and N-Dub Nation.

                            1: You don’t use perverted comments when arguing.

                            2: You don’t swear constantly when you are arguing.

                            3: You don’t use alts to make yourself to look better.

                            4: you are funnier.

                            5: We respect you more.

                            6: And most important, we actually like you.

                            1. Nintendo Comrades Anubis and Super Gravy, you honor me greatly…

                              Together we shall witness the restoration of Nintendo’s power…

                            1. Over half the gaming industry have attitude problems. I can’t believe how childish the gaming industry is.

                              1. Childish and stupid…

                                A Wii console under the Wii U Gamepad, really…

                                A french analyst writing to “Mr.Nintendo”, and I thought Ben Sanders had issues…

                              1. I have the original for a few years now and funny enough I never played it… I’m tied up to other games XD

                              2. This game got born when Microsoft acualy was trying to give exclusive a most own back then a most own now.

                                1. The funny thing is, even though it started out as an Xbox exclusive, the HD versions aren’t even on Xbox. lol

                                  You can play it on PS3, Vita, PC, and soon Wii U but no Xbox. That’s a shame (on Microsoft’s part).

                                2. I love the oddworld developers :3 They always respect the hardware and it seems we could be seeing a awesome version of Stranger’s Wrath coming to the Wii U soon :3

                                    1. I know. Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty and Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath. Now all we need is Muchie’s Odyssey HD then the Wii U will become the indie platform of the year :)

                                      1. Looks that way so far. Did you know that the Oliver spike game was put on Xbox Indie section what a shame for such a great game.

                                    2. Everyone says Nintendo is fantastic to work with, so we don’t need anymore Indie Devs saying so…we get it, Nintendo is amazing, the Wii U is next gen, yadda yadda yadda..old news.

                                      1. You could say the same about all the shitty news. “yeah, we know, poor marketing, poor sales, old news.”

                                        So if you can’t talk about good news or bad news, what article would you publish? Post a link.

                                    3. There is many devs who love to work with Nintendo. Rare was one of them look what happened to them after they turned their back, David wise is now back in workin with Nintendo in Retro Studios(Iwata also likes David Wise´s work thats why he has DKC soundtrack on his ipod). Retro Sudios is one of them too thats why they sold themselfs to N. Mistwalker loves to develop for Nintendo, Sakaguchi who also left N at one point has comeback. AlphaDream loves to develop for Nintendo and they have lots of ex Square members. Lets not forget Sega ex enemy who is now like Nintendos “bestfriend”.Platinum Games who are thankful for N to makin Bayonetta 2 possible. I could go on all day listing devs that have positive relationship to Nintendo, its just media that tries to make workin with N look bad, while its completely opposite. Multimedia companies will never understand how to work on actual games.

                                      1. A join effort for the company to be bough by Nintendo and Sega would be better. Sega can keep the games multiplat while Nintendo side can make it that they also come to wiiu an win win for Nintendo in any case.

                                      2. I was god when my creators worked with Nintendo. I was relevant back the Hee-Hee-Hee. But now im nothing more than a yearly digital re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-release for some shitty phones. Hate Hate Hate HEE-HEE-HEE. Now main characters are meaningles emos and metrosexuals, back in my day they were warriors of light. I did something, i becomed god with along with gods like Zelda,Mario,DonkeyKong etc. Now im nothing more than an character part of the raped franchise Hee-Hee-Hee. Ive been alcoholist since my creators becomed whores Hee-Hee-Hee. Im not god anymore, im an whore just like the ones who handle my franchise Hee-Hee-Hee. Lightnin? sounds like an male who dress like an girl Hee-Hee-Hee. Noctis?Wtf some emo gay. Hee-Hee-Hee what happened? Oh yeah all those phony fans wanted more emos like themselfs and cloud Hee-Hee-HEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! Thanks for ruining my Fantasy it should have been the Final one, really.
