Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails

Developer Dakko Dakko, best known for the PlayStation Network title Floating Cloud God, revealed their newest project, Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails for Wii U.

It is the company’s bold first crack at the Nintendo console and has promoted the company to an official Wii U developer.

The game itself, beyond having a very bizarre working title, is said to play similar to that of a simulation game. The best example that immediately comes to mind is Pokemon Snap for Nintendo 64. Essentially, players take control of the buddy on rails that must traverse the railed path, while passing items onto Scram Kitty in order to advance.

Dakko Dakko has mentioned a strong focus on shooting, making the game a bizarre mix between a rail-riding platformer and a first-person shooter, challenging players to choose the right paths while firing colorful ammunition at enemies and obstacles.

The relatively small-time developer has chosen the path of Nintendo’s Wii U console due to the unique GamePad capabilities that allow the game to be enjoyed to a greater degree with its dual screens. The GamePad will function as the player’s tools and action commands while the TV display will feature Scram Kitty and the course in front of the player.

Hitting targets and progressing through a level will be accompanied by vibrant art by none other than Army of Trolls’ Gary Lucken as well as humorous commentary.

A strong focus on Miiverse implementation has also been noted by the developer, with player accomplishments transferring into accomplishment items for friends, similar to the system used in many Facebook games in which players utilize social aspects of their platform.

While Dakko Dakko still has not revealed any gameplay or real footage from Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails, a logo for the game was unveiled. The Wii U title is expected to launch on Nintendo’s eShop later this year.
