The Amazing Brain Train on WiiWare

The Amazing Brain Train on WiiWare

NinjaBee just announced that they've joined up with Grubby Games to bring The Amazing Brain Train onto WiiWare (as opposed to the spastic trains we're used to).

Indie video game developer NinjaBee is proud to announce it has partnered with fellow indie developer Grubby Games to bring the 2008 PAX 10 Award-winning game - The Amazing Brain Train - to Nintendo WiiWare, the Wii system's download service, this fall.

Steve Taylor, NinjaBee: "The Amazing Brain Train is a great example of some things that make indie games great ? it's highly creative, visually distinctive and fundamentally fun to play".

More than a year of work has been put into fine-tuning The Amazing Brain Train experience and adapting it for Wii. The result is a fun, ultra-challenging and addictive brain training game that is unlike any other in the WiiWare library.

Ryan Clark, Grubby Games: "This is no ordinary brain game, The Amazing Brain Train contains features never before seen in the genre. It's a departure from the minimalist brain games we've seen in the past. You can forget about goal-less gameplay: The Amazing Brain Train is packed with quests, trophies and high scores that add an aspect of gameplay that other brain games just don't include".

Hosted by the small genius Professor Fizzwizzle, the game takes the player on a brain-boosting adventure around the Professor's cartoon world, stopping to solve challenges and help his friends along the way. Fueled only by mental energy, The Amazing Brain Train guides the player through 15 different mini-games in three addictive gameplay modes: quest, test and practice.

The ability to save personal, friends' and family members' high scores on the same console allows the player to come back time and again to challenge best scores and prove just how smart he or she is.

Steve Taylor, NinjaBee: "Ryan showed me a copy of the game before it came out and after seeing it just once we said 'This would be perfect for Wii'. That's how this whole project got started. One of the cool things about working with small studios is having the flexibility to do something like this without a big negotiation or interference from a big publisher".

The Amazing Brain Train was originally released for PC, Mac and Linux in May of 2008 and in July of that year, the game was selected out of hundreds of entries as one of 10 games to be featured at the Penny Arcade Expo.
