S: Your boast is that Runbow is the “biggest couch-multiplayer experience” on Wii U. Why aim for that?
13: We love multiplayer games, and we always have since we were kids. One of the things that we love to do as a company is get together and play games as a group. We find that it’s best when we are on a couch with a TV yelling at each other, trying to swat controllers out of each others hands. . . It’s the kind of fun that makes us all feel like kids again.
But most multiplayer games are either two or four player, so when you have more than four friends together, someone has to sit out and just watch. Why can’t they play, too? Why can’t everyone join in on the fun? Why should anyone have to sit out? With Runbow, we wanted to use all the Wii U controllers available to achieve this. There’s nine of us in the company, and we managed to fit nine players into Runbow, so when we QA we actually use every member of our team.
S: While the Wii is renown for being played by groups, the Wii U isn’t as much – would you agree? If so, why do you think that is?
13: Well, in my experience there are three kings of local multiplayer: Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and Mario Party. Whenever I go to a party and there is a game machine out, it’s Nintendo, and at some point in the night, one of those three games comes out. I think the Wii U is still a really strong platform for multiplayer games. Part of the reason is because the Wii before it was also strong for multiplayer. When I bought my Wii U, I already had four Wii remotes, four nunchucks, and three classic controllers. I could already play a full game of Nintendo Land without having to go out and buy four shiny new Wii U controllers for 60 bucks a pop. I think that the cost of controllers can be a real barrier for entry.
Also on the eShop there are a lot of cool developers playing with the gamepad and different ways to do multiplayer. Games like Spin The Bottle: Bumpie’s Party, which doesn’t even use the TV(!) and Sportsball where a fifth player can use the gamepad to give a live commentary on the match. These kinds of games are taking advantage of the GamePad in unique ways and we want to be part of this community of developers doing cool things with local multiplayer.
