In a recent interview, Tomorrow Corporation’s Kyle Gabler revealed that Little Inferno sold well on the Wii U, which encouraged the team to bring its next game, Human Resource Machine, to the platform. Additionally, Gabler confirmed that Human Resource Machine will feature off-TV play when it launches.
The Wii U was a perfect platform for Little Inferno, and sold well! All three of us have been Nintendo fans since we were kids, and so bringing our games to Nintendo consoles is also a nostalgic decision as well as a business one.
We’re big fans of off-TV play. TV’s are so hard to use. Does it have the right input source selected? Is it on channel 3? Is the VCR passing the signal through? Is the aspect ratio preserved? Is the frame rate multiplier disabled? Ugh TV’s. So, yes, Human Resource Machine is fully playable on the GamePad all by itself, just like Little Inferno was. We also discovered that the stylus is a perfect input device for this game – I wish I had one on my laptop!
Human Resource Machine is slotted for a release on October 15th, will you be picking the game up?
