I'm now a Wii U developer

Really exited. I submitted an application a few months ago, got a call from Nintendo yesterday, and they gave me developer status after the phone call.

I have a cool idea for the Wii U (with the Rareware spirit), hopefully it can come to fruition one day.

It's not a job, I'm now allowed to make my own games for the Wii U.

I'm hoping I can make a Banjo-Kazooie like game for the Wii U. It's pretty ambitious, but maybe in a year or so I can show something.

So, they sent you like the official WiiU dev kit?

That, sir, is awesome! If you ever need help with something/music or sound related.... Call me haha

'd love to hear more on how programming for Wii U is different from any other consoles/computer. After all, it's the reason companies are less willing to port to Wii U (That, and the low sales)

I had no idea that the Nintendo Web Framework was a thing. I might need to send in an application of my own

I've actually been interested in this, but have had no idea how to even go about something like this. I'd also question my capability of developing a game anywhere outside of Game Maker, but I'd like to think that my willingness and ability to learn would be enough.

However, the game making software or language is only half of it. The other half is logic and knowing how to solve problems and design your world. That I know much better.

Nonetheless I am nothing but excited for you and the game you're gonna make on Wii U. If there's anyway anyone here can help you know all you have to do is let us know.

Thanks for the well wishes everybody!

As for helping out, thanks but I already have a development crew. What I would love from you guys is your feedback regarding this potential project. Everyone here loves Banjo-Kazooie, and I would love to create the spiritual successor that the Ex-Rare employees weren't able to complete.

So I'm thinking for the 3D Platformer idea, we would only create one level. For example, if this was Banjo-Kazooie, I would only make Mumbo's Mountain. I'll probably let a couple of professionals do some work on the game using money out of my own pocket (if they have a specialty that my crew doesn't posses). I have a few people in mind as well.

After the first level is 100% done and everyone is happy with how the level turned out, I would put it on Kickstarter where potential backers could download the one level demo for free (If Nintendo would allow that, I'll have to ask them). They would know exactly what kind of game they're funding.

What do you all think?

Sounds like a grand idea. Not too different from the plan for Hat in Time.

I don't see how Nintendo could have a problem. I mean, presumably you're using Unity. You don't even have to mention that it was developed for Wii U and just give a PC demo.

That's amazing, man! Congratulations on this, that's pretty damn awesome. I'm more than willing to advertise and promote the hell out of your new games! I'll even pull some strings and get my YouTube famous buddies to gain you some exposure. Good luck, and I'm sure you'll make some fantastic games!
