Well-known Nintendo indie developer Jools Watsham has announced his first post-Renegade Kid announcement after the announcement this week that both founders would be parting ways with one another for developing 2D and 3D titles, respectively.
Now under the name Atooi, the title will be called Chicken Wiggle, which will be available on the 3DS and iOS. Exclusively announced through Nintendo Life, the game will allow you to create and share levels through the power of the Internet as well as have it’s own story mode. Check out the press release below.
Atooi announced today that the creative minds behind Mutant Mudds and Xeodrifter are developing a new platformer experience called Chicken Wiggle – coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop and the App Store soon.
The stars of Chicken Wiggle are an improbable duo: a young chicken and his best buddy – a wiggly worm – nestled in his backpack! Together, they team up for adventure to jump, peck, and worm-grapple across a myriad of perplexing platforming levels – full of fun gadgets, tricky hazards, and sneaky foes – determined to rescue their friends from the wicked witch in her sky towers.
Create & Share Your Own Levels!
But wait, there’s more! Aspiring game designers and playful doodlers alike can spend hours of fun hatching their own levels with the user-friendly level creator included with the game. You can even choose different gameplay rules, art themes, and provide custom hints, tips, and search tags. Once you’re ready, it’s easy to share your creations on-line with other Chicken Wiggle players via the community portal. Now, anyone can be a game designer on the go!
Players seeking more levels to play after completing Chicken Wiggle’s main story mode will find a wealth of unique levels to download, play, and rate for free!
