Zelda Meets Ico In "The Girl And The Robot" For Wii U

The Wii U continues its charge into the indie arena with The Girl and the Robot which was recently funded through Kickstarter. The title is described as a mix of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Ico with a touch of Studio Ghibli film magic (Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle). The game features a simple yet compelling tale of a young girl who escapes her prison in a mysterious castle and finds a robot who helps her flee from the evil queen who imprisoned her. While the game is early in its development, it looks quite beautiful in its simplicity and is refreshing to see indie game developers tackle the types of games that the mainstream industry now ignores. Enjoy!
