"illo: birth of the cool" Gets Creative On Wii U & 3DS!

Back when the Nintendo DS first launched back in 2004, there was a rush of games that used the systems unique controls to craft completely new gameplay experiences. Unfortunately, once the novelty wore off, game design largely returned to normal and stayed that way until the indie games boom which has once again begun to reinvigorate the industry. Fortunately, both the Wii U and 3DS are uniquely equipped to handle bold game design that challenges conventional gaming ideas.

This brings us to illo: birth of the cool, a game that will bring you back to the early days of Nintendo's innovative DS where anything seemed possible with titles like Kirby Canvas Curse, Yoshi Touch & Go and Warioware Touched!. The game utilizes touch & motion control as well as the built-in microphone challenging the player to navigate puzzle like environments. illo: birth of the cool even features a rewind feature similar to Braid. The puzzle platformer is a new IP and passion project for developer Raylight Games and showcases to the type of innovation sorely lacking in many new games. A concept trailer has been released which will give players an idea of what to expect from the full game. Enjoy!
