Double Interview Ahoy!
We recently had the opportunity to interview MP2 Games and "Konjak" regarding their upcoming Wii U and 3DS eShop title NoituLove! We like getting to the point without unnecessary fluff so here's what they had to say regarding NoituLove:
Developer's Interview wrote:
Hello! Thanks for joining us to answer our questions regarding Noitu Love!
[MP2]: Thanks for having us! I'm Mathias from MP2 Games.
[Konjak]: Hello! I'm Joakim Sandberg, probably more known as "konjak".
Could you tell us about your team?
[MP2]: So it's really just me and Joakim. I do the porting/publishing, while Joakim does the rest, really.
[Konjak]: I sit in my chair and try to make games and eating things with all of my time.
How long has Noitu Love been in development?
[MP2]: The 3DS and Wii U versions have been in development since the end of 2015. The original game was released quite some time ago!
[Konjak]: Thanks to Mathias I think the game will reach a lot more people, but I actually released the game on PC in 2008. It later got on Steam in 2012, so this has been a journey. The game itself, prior to that, took me a record 9-10 months because it was a very fun and simple project for me.
Is the 3DS version of the game compatible with all 3DS' or is it a New
[MP2]: It will be compatible with both the original 3DS and the New 3DS!
Could you tell us a bit about the game?
[Konjak]: Noitu Love Devolution is a quite classic action-arcade game, dominated by explosions and bosses. It stars Xoda Rap as she has to protect the city from the resurgence of the "Darn" army, a group of evil robots. But along with them comes problems where parts of the city is turning into other place and time eras, and the Peacekeepers have to find out why it happens, and how to fix it.
What are some of the most unique features of Noitu Love?
[Konjak]: The game is simply my desire to make my own Contra or Metal Slug-like game, as those were things of my childhood. To make it something more interesting, I wanted to see what I could do when such a game used mouse controls, and I found it could be pretty fun, and also very fluent in how you get around. So with motions and aiming you zip around all over the screen, beating on things.
Will the Wii U version of the game be different than the 3DS version?
[MP2]: The 3DS version will have gameplay and controls that are similar to those on the Wii U using the Gamepad. We are still finalizing the 3DS version, so the 3DS version may have a few extra additions when we release it.
How long would you say NoituLove is from beginning to end for
[Konjak]: It's akin to the length of those classic action games. It's compact and sweet, wanting you to replay it. It does come with unlockable characters who play completely different. I thought it would be fun to see what other controls based on pointing around I could think of, and they are the result.
Which controllers will be compatible with the Wii U version of your game?
[MP2]: The Gamepad is supported, using swipes and touch gestures for special moves. Also, Wiimote + Nunchuk is supported, where you press buttons to hit enemies while pointing at the screen. This also uses Wiimote swipes to do special moves!
What is your favorite aspect of Noitu Love?
[MP2]: The classic arcade gameplay, and the countless boss fights. It's action extravaganza, and learning how to deal with new enemies is a great experience.
That's all of the questions we have for you today! Hopefully we'll
have the opportunity to interview you again sometime!
[MP2]: Thank you for the attention! The game will be out around April on Wii U and 3DS, so make sure to follow @konjak_news if you want to stay updated.
[Konjak]: Also check out the projects of Mathias and MP2 Games (http://mp2.dk/) as he's been a good source of getting hard-to-port games to more people. A true citizen.
