Alten8 Limited is pleased to announce its soon to be released WiiWare Game SQUIBS ARCADE for release in Q2 2009.

We are pleased that we have the opportunity to showcase the game at the WiiWare Media Summit being held on the 7th and 8th of April 2009 at the NOE headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany.

SQUIBS ARCADE is a collection of Games, which initially were based on the old style of LCD games. This germ of an idea then grew into a much bigger concept. SQUIBS ARCADE takes inspiration from the current generation of AAA titles, distilling the game play to its most fundamental form, and re-imagining them with the style and passion of the classic LCD games. The titles within SQUIBS ARCADE are – Clown, Gun Cogs, Crowd Wader, Button Basher, Fantasy Turn Base, Call of Honour, Jack-a-motor, Lots of Levelling, Cardboard Axel Mush, We’re Fat, and Regret the Fist. The game titles being both homages and parodies of the games which inspired them. Alten8 believes that SQUIBS ARCADE will appeal to both casual game players, but also hardcore game fans, who will recognise the tributes Alten8 is paying to their favourite games, and also enjoy the genuine addictive game play to be found in SQUIBS ARCADE.



This is the first of several games to be released in the next few months on WiiWare by Alten8. Other titles will include –

* Tractor Tom’s Puzzle Farm – based on the popular children’s TV show.
* Eternity’s Child – The long awaited platform game based on the Luc Bernard PC game.
* Alien Autopsy – Based on the internationally known IP, TV documentaries, and Film.
* Mark Hinchcliffe’s Game Series – New IP based on the Mark Hinchcliffe character.
* Other TV and Film and internal IP to be announced soon also.


WiiWare is allowing Alten8 to reach a wide audience with a broad style of games, from casual to children’s learning, to platform, with one easy to use download system via Wii TM, direct to your home.
