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.

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.

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…)

Carbon date set for myNotebook™ in the Americas

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Sydney, August 12, 2010

PRESS RELEASE: Nnooo announces the launch date of myNotebook: Carbon™ for Nintendo DSiWare™ in the Americas.

myNotebook: Carbon™, the latest release in the highly popular myNotebook™ series, will launch in the Americas on Monday August 16. This version allows the user to save 128 pages, export their notes to their Nintendo DSi Photo Album and unlock brand new page types. It also features new icons to indicate the time and current battery level.

“We are excited to be able to respond to user feedback” said Nnooo’s Creative Director, Nic Watt. “People love using their notebooks so much, they quickly run out of pages. A lot of the feedback we had was to not only increase the page count but also allow users to be able to export their pages. We decided that the best way to do this was to release new versions with more pages and these additional features.”

myNotebook: Carbon is expected to be launched in Europe, Australia and New Zealand later this month. An additional two new colours, myNotebook: Pearl™ and myNotebook: Tan™, are expected to be released during August and September, with the same new features as myNotebook: Carbon. These new versions are in addition to the original three myNotebook colours – blue, green and red – launched at the end of last year.

“Soon we will have a suite of six myNotebook colours to choose from”, said Watt, “giving users plenty of choice and a chance to build a myNotebook™ library!”

The myNotebook range is part of Nnooo’s myLifeCollected™ series, which also includes myPostcards™ and the soon to be released myDiary™. myDiary will allow users to organise their lives by keeping track of appointments, making daily journal entries and even setting daily alarms.

myNotebook: Carbon will cost 500 points and be available from Monday August 16 in the Americas.

Set your alarms for myDiary and new versions of myNotebook

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Sydney, June 11, 2010

PRESS RELEASE: Nnooo announce the development of myDiary™ and three new versions of myNotebook™ for Nintendo DSiWare™.

myDiary is a new application in the extremely successful myLifeCollected range of software exclusive to Nintendo DSiWare. It allows users to organise their lives by keeping track of appointments, making daily journal entries and even setting daily alarms.

“myDiary is a great application for keeping your life organised.”, said Nic Watt, Creative Director, Nnooo. “Users pop open their Nintendo DSi™, tap on a day and jot down a note, to do or event. They can even add an alarm per day to remind them of really important events.”

Users can tap on a day to see any notes they have set, add alarms to keep track of important events or birthdays and customise their myDiary by changing the User Interface colour and Ink colour.  While the new versions of myNotebook add several new features and enhancements.

“myNotebook has proved much more popular than we anticipated.”, said Watt. “Many users have requested more pages to write on, the ability to export their pages so we thought we should try to give them something back.”

The three new colours are Carbon, Pearl and Tan. These versions will allow the user to save 128 pages, export their notes to the Nintendo DSi Photo album and unlock many new page styles. They also contain a new HUD (Heads Up Display) element which contains the current time, battery status and volume level.

myDiary and the three new versions of myNotebook are planned for release between July and September 2010.
