“We felt it is time for doing something that makes gamers aware that there are indie games on Wii U,” said Collin van Ginkel, co-founder of Two Tribes. ”At the same time we wanted to do something that is a big thanks for the fans of our games who already bought them. With this promo, indie studios from different countries support each other.”
This sale starts in the US and Europe today and ends February 13th. For more information on each game, scroll below.
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
“Morph at will between two dynamically different dream worlds in this fast-paced platformer! Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams combines punchy graphics and tight controls with the challenge of retro era platforming.”
Toki Tori 2+
“Toki Tori 2+ is a Metroidvania style puzzle adventure. There are no tutorials, there’s no hand-holding, no-one tells you what to do in Toki Tori 2+. The fun is in exploring and overcoming the obstacles of the lush forest island on your own merit.”
“Runner 2 is a rhythm-music, auto-running platformer. Players will run through fantastic environments, using brand new moves, to amazing new soundtracks as they run, jump, slide, kick, and soar toward the goal of tracking down the Nefarious Timbletot who has un-fused CommanderVideo’s reality.”
Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition
“Space Hooligans have escaped custody and are wreaking havoc all over Planet Land! HQ calls on cybernetic peace-keeper Patricia Wagon to bring these renegades to justice.”
Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party
“Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party is a game for 2-8 players. You sit in a circle around the GamePad and spin a virtual bottle. Collaborate with your friends and complete the most challenges to win Bumpie’s Party! Spin the Bottle might be tongue-in-cheek, but don’t worry; kissing is not required.”
