Consider the unique features of the Wii U GamePad, it’s somewhat surprising we haven’t seen many point-and-click adventures released for it. Plenty of titles have found clever uses for the touchscreen, but one would think that genre would have excelled on the system. That potential isn’t completely lost on developers, though, because indie adventure game Mr. Pumpkin’s Adventure is coming to the eShop.
Publisher Circle Entertainment will be bringing the game, which has already seen releases on iOS and PS Vita, to Wii U mid-July of this year. The game is spread across eight chapters and features multiple endings and even a hidden chapter and, judging from the trailer, the story appears to be strangely existential and the gameplay full of puzzles. Also, the visual design definitely has a unique aesthetic as well.
The Wii U eShop has proven to be fertile ground for unique indie titles, so it looks like Mr. Pumpkin’s Adventure could fit in nicely. Hopefully it will also give point-and-click players something to look forward to.
