Originally developed for PC/Mac/Linux. It was now confirmed by the game's creator Aurelien Regard that is also coming to Wii U. No release date yet.

First look video with (awesome looking) Alpha gameplay goodness

And the star of the game, Penelope:

In general developers seem to be pretty happy. They have had a few big success stories like Frozenbyte saying that Trine 2 sold best on Wii U out of the home console versions.

Good enough, indie developers seem pretty satisfied with sales, and a two or three multiplatform games (like Mutant Mudds) have sold the most on Wii U, even more than Steam. It's not quite the indie powerhouse the Vita is, but it's definitely got it's fair share of indies.

Game looks interesting, I'll probably pick it up when it comes out

I was kind of expecting another 2d platformer with a character jumping and shooting (not to knock on those, but just not that interested in them at the moment), but this looks really cool!

Totally got an old-school Starfox meets F-Zero type feel. Looks great!

I really dig the style. Of course, I need to see more of the finished game, but I like it so far.

Looks really nice. A grappling hook is a neat idea too for a shmup. Don't think I've seen that before.

The first 20min are better than what I expected :D

I still can't believe that this is a one-man game. Incredible.....

It's pretty great so far, just got to branching missions. Like the style of it. Simple but effective controls. I lost the second Sirens race, need to finish that line up. Seems to get hard fast if this is the easiest path

I died on the first jump! That's kind of like dying on the first goomba in Mario, no?

Final version available today, including the new 4 players mode!

If you played the first early access build it's been rather tweaked since, the first early access build I played was really too hard on the first track.

There is an extra achievement for multiplayer but it's basically automatically granted.

Now on to find three other players!
