Nnooo Developed Cubemen 2 to be the First Wii U Game with Cross-platform Multiplayer

Australian video game developer Nnooo is bringing cross-platform multiplayer to Wii U with its title Cubemen 2.

Cubemen 2 is a 3D strategy game in which the player controls an army of Cubemen and uses them to battle against enemies in a range of modes.  Players will be able to enter online matches and create and share user-generated levels regardless of which platform they are using.  Players on the Wii U version will be able to battle against others who own the game on Wii U, PC, Linux, Mac, or iOS devices.

“I’m really proud to be able to announce this,” said Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo. “We’ve spent the last few months working with both Nintendo and 3 Sprockets, the game’s developer, to make this a reality.  Cubemen 2 is an amazing game and a great fit for Nintendo players.  We can’t wait to see how creative they are, whether in tactical multiplayer online or in the new levels they build.”

A top-selling Steam and iOS, Cubeman 2 can be played in single player mode or with as many as six players in online solo or team battles against other players or AI.  Players will also be able to create and share their own levels using the game’s built-in level editor.  Wii U players will have access to all user-generated levels created on other platforms since the release of the game. There are currently over 4,000 user-generated levels to play.  The game also includes specific level themes, customizable skins, and a global ranking system.

“We’re excited to be working closely with Nnooo and Nintendo to bring a new dynamic to a Nintendo platform,” said Seon Rozenblum, Director of 3 Sprockets. “We’re bringing the gaming community together, offering true cross-platform play and user generated content across multiple platforms and devices and we are ecstatic to be including the Wii U in our lineup for Cubemen 2.”

This game also marks another milestone for Nnooo, being the first game they have published from another developer.  According to Bruce Thomson, Nnooo’s Business & Marketing Director, “Publishing has always been part of our long term plan.  We’ll be identifying games we think fit well on the platforms we develop for and working with the developers to bring the games to some or all of these platforms.  Our recent funding from Screen NSW has helped us to combine indie game development and publishing under one roof.”

Nnooo is a game development studio based in Sydney, Australia.

From Linux Game News:

Going back to Cubemen, it’s amazing to see a game that started off making an impact on Linux then moving on to other platforms. Even more impressive is the fact that Cubemen and Cubemen 2 are both fully cross-platform, giving a solid example of just how an independent title can impact the gaming community.

From everyone at Linux Game News, a very warm congratulations to Nic Watt and Nnooo.
