Sword 'N' Board coming to Wii U eShop

Sword 'N' Board played on Wii U GamePad
Indie developer Robert Busey has announced that his upcoming action RPG Sword 'N' Board is coming to the Wii U eShop. Players will take control of Sidd, "a kid with an active imagination," who battles his way through imaginary enemies as he tries to recover his lost video game console. Here are a few excerpts from the game's Kickstarter page.

Sword 'N' Board is a puzzle oriented adventure RPG that is 29 years in the making! In Sword 'N' Board you play as Sidd, a kid with an active imagination! You will battle your way through imaginary enemies, cardboard forests, dark pillow fort dungeons and solve challenging puzzles in order to find the pieces of your lost video game console!

A lot of more modern adventure games have really taken to being super tutorial driven, and showing the player exactly everything that needs to be done. Most modern adventure games no longer reward exploration, or trying things for yourself, which is definitley something I miss when playing more modern games. 

The developer also states that his goal is to make a game that plays more like the retro titles in which "Rewards felt rewarding." For more details, you can check out the official Kickstarter via the source link below. Trailer after the break.
