Chicken Wiggle dev blog - Making a Game Maker

Wanting the game to be something really special, we let our imaginations go wild. Designing the gameplay for Chicken Wiggle was very different than designing Mutant Mudds or Xeodrifter. With Chicken Wiggle, we first had to create the level editor that the user would ultimately use in the final game before we could design any levels for the game. This was difficult, frustrating, and a little maddening. But, it had to be this way.

Smash Bros. Wii U, Splatoon 2 top Disney XD's eSports programming

I actually caught some of this programming over the weekend, but a lot of it was repeat content for me. Still, it's great to see Nintendo's games doing so well in Disney XD's eSports push. Now I wonder if Disney is happy with the numbers the programming is putting up.
