Since starting work full time at Full Fat, I’ve worked almost exclusively on titles for the Nintendo DS, including Biker Mice From Mars, The Sims 2: Castaway, and most recently The Sims 2: Apartment Pets, released in August 2008.
However, the end of November saw the release of the first Wii game I’ve worked on: Jambo! Safari Ranger Adventure, published by Sega. It is based (loosely) on the Naomi based Jambo! Safari arcade game that became a cult classic after it’s release in 1999. The game has received some surprisingly favourable reviews, despite the Wii version being aimed squarely at younger players, and despite it suffering from a number of crucial flaws (more on that in another post).
I’m excited to see a game that I had a significant role in on the shelves, even if that game isn’t all that I had hoped it would be when the project started more than 12 months ago.
