NintendoLife review myDiary

Monday, September 20th, 2010

NintendoLife reviewed myDiary and gave it a commendable 8 points out of 10! You can read the full review below or click here to go straight to the NintendoLife site.

Everyone, take note

Nnooo has seen a fair amount of success with DSiWare. Originally starting off with Pop+ Solo, the developer really began to make its mark on the DSi with the myLifeCollected series, a set of applications for the DSi that started with myNotebook. Since then, Nnooo has moved onto other applications such as myPostcards and myNotebook: Carbon, Pearl and Tan. Now we have myDiary, and it comes as a worthy addition to the series. (more…)

Q & A Interview with Nnooo creative director, Nic Watt

UK-born, Nic Watt’s pet project, Nnooo, has found remarkable success from a digital download platform that many dismiss – thanks in large part to Nintendo’s DSiWare platform, Watt has expanded his small team to four, and is now on the hunt for a senior programmer to expand further.

He sat down with us to have a chat around being a start up, the challenges of developing on other platforms (Nnooo also has WiiWare and iPhone games available, and is looking at the PlayStation Network), and makes some predictions for the future. (more…)

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

The Wiiloveit.com reviewer, KnucklesSonic8, took a long hard look at our latest versions of myNotebook.  See below for his insightful thoughts or click here for the Wiiloveit.com link.

myNotebook: Carbon, Pearl, Tan – DSiWare App Review

As a follow-up to the successes of myNotebook, Nnooo made plans to launch 3 new additions to this selection of apps at a higher cost. And being the fan that I am of the myLifeConnected series, I became enthusiastic over the new promised features. Question is, does it live up to what it intended to be? (more…)

Vooks interview Nic: making games in Australia, DSi, 3DS and Spirit Hunters Inc.

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Nic was recently interviewed by Josh Moulds from Vooks about making games in Australia, Nintendo’s DSi and 3DS platforms and the upcoming Spirit Hunters Inc.  Read the full interview below or click here for the Vooks link.

Interview with Nnooo’s Nic Watt

We take a moment to chat with the makers of myNotebook about making games in Australia and their upcoming RPG, ‘Spirit Hunters Inc.’ for DSiWare.
Nnooo is a growing development studio based in Sydney who have produced some of the most successful software apps on the DSiWare store. The four-strong team have managed to pump out several versions of their myNotebook apps for DSiWare; the bubble-bursting game Pop for DSiWare and WiiWare; and are looking to build on their game-making chops with their ghost-catching RPG game, Spirit Hunters Inc.

I was lucky to see an early build of Spirit Hunters Inc. earlier this year- a game that utilises the DSi’s camera to enable players to hunt down, fight and collect hidden spirits in the world around them. The project will be Nnooo’s most ambitious game to date and highlights the creative talent we have here at home in Australia. Seeing the potential in Spirit Hunters Inc., as well as the growing library of myLifeCollected software on the DSi, I tracked down Nnooo’s creative director Nic Watt to talk about what it was like to develop games in Australia and asked him to shed some light on Spirit Hunters.

Experienced Software Engineer required at Nnooo Studios, Sydney

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

Nnooo is a small independent games development studio based in Sydney Australia. We fund, develop and publish our own games and applications which are predominantly made for the Nintendo Wii and DSi platforms through WiiWare and DSiWare channels. Our titles include Pop/Pop+ Solo, the myLifeCollected series and the upcoming Spirit Hunters Inc.

Our success to date, combined with a strong current pipeline and a desire to extend our products to other platforms (including Nintendo’s new 3DS), has opened up a permanent position for an experienced software engineer. This is an opportunity for a passionate and committed games developer to join a small, professional and friendly team who make their own games and own decisions. The role will encompass whole game programming and the successful candidate should be able to demonstrate a successful history of programming all aspects of games to completion. (more…)
