Oddworld developer praises Nintendo as a partner
Stewart Gilray, the CEO for Just Add Water has stated that Nintendo has been a fantastic company to partner with. The developer is currently working on porting Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD to Wii U and Gilray says there have been no issues working with Nintendo in getting the port onto the console.
“Indeed, their developer relations man is a fan of the franchise so reached out to us to ask for that title specifically, that’s where the discussions started. In terms of what are they like to work with, they’re fantastic. I’ve NEVER had a problem with working with Nintendo in respect of their people and teams, it’s been a case of a problem in terms of the hardware and indeed the lack of a competent digital outlet, until now.”
It’s interesting to note that Gilray also praises Nintendo’s current digital offerings, admitting that previous consoles from Nintendo did not have a robust digital storefront until the Wii U.
