The Adventures of Dash could be coming to Wii U

Indie developer Robotoki is currently working on a platform-puzzle game titled The Adventures of Dash for the PC, Mac, Ouya and LINUX. The team has announced that they are already licensed Wii U developers and hope to bring the game to the Wii U as well. They are currently trying to raise funds via Kickstarter to make an eShop version possible.

We are already licensed Nintendo developers and have Wii U dev kits that we'll be using to get it up and running on Wii U. If we get funded we will try to bring it to as many platforms as possible with the funds we get and will use the profits from the game to bring it to consoles we couldn't afford prior. Long story short, yes, we hope to bring it to the Wii U as quickly as possible.

Here's a brief description of the game's storyline:


In most ways, hes just like any other 9-year old boy. He wakes up, he goes to school, he plays with friends... but in one way, one very unique way, he is unlike any boy whom ever lived. For you see, unlike every other boy, or girl for that matter, Dash is unable to control when, or where...he falls asleep!

And with every doze, every nap, every slip into that sweet sweet slumber, he finds himself in a brand new dream, filled with wildly different worlds to explore, puzzles to solve, dohickeys to find, foes to vanquish, and POGs to collect. 

The Kickstarter has a goal of $400,000 and has already raised over $20,000 with 26 days to go. Those who pledge more than $1,000 will receive NES and Super Nintendo mock-up cartridges of the game. They won't be functional, but they will be nice showpieces nonetheless.

Robotoki is led by Robert Bowling who previously worked as the Creative Strategist for the Call of Duty franchise. Here's an interesting piece of information about his motivation:

Robert's AAA development experience has driven the concept and creation of The Adventures of Dash, tearing down all the stigmas and poisons of modern game development and building a team from the ground up to be focused on creative freedom and encouraging innovative new gameplay mechanics above all else.

Many in the industry have criticized the modern development process, and it appears that Mr. Bowling is one of them. You can find a trailer, screenshots, concept art, and a lot more on the game's official Kickstarter via the source link below:
