Dutch developers Engine Software has announced their upcoming offering for Nintendo’s WiiWare downloadable game service. Engine’s debut title, tentatively dubbed Project Bang!, will be a casual game with an online mode and, presumably, quite a few explosions.
Here’s what Ruud van de Moosdyk, Engine’s VP of Development, had to say about Project Bang!:
We are very excited about our first game for the WiiWare service. When we acquired our official Wii license last year we already had several concepts written up that would be ideal for WiiWare, and Project Bang! is the first to actually go into production. We wanted to get rolling on this exciting new platform early on, and I am quite happy we are now on schedule to do just that.
Engine’s statement also indicated a March 2008 launch for the WiiWare service, which coincides with the launch schedule mentioned last year by former NoA VP of Sales and Marketing Perrin Kaplan. While WiiWare has technically been available since the Wii’s launch, downloadable games have yet to be made available on the service.
