Lair developer wants to “push” Wii with new game
The president of Lair developer Factor 5, Julian Eggebrecht, has said that he wants to get the most out of Wii with his new project, but refused to be drawn on details.
“We want to push the hardware,” he said. “I think for us it’s relatively easy for us to push the hardware. It inherently comes. But a lot of it is about exploiting the uniqueness of the Wii. I mean, on the graphical side, we’re going to try and do everything to outdo everything else on the platform, the same as we did for the Star Wars games back on the GameCube. But one of our main focuses is the innovation around the controls. Everybody is always talking about the motion control, but I think people are overplaying that a bit. I really, really love the pointing aspect of the remote. Although we’re going to use everything for what we have in development, I think the pointing stuff is probably the biggest innovation which we’re working on right now.”
The identity of the game in question hasn’t been announced as yet.
