Wiiwaa, A Wii Game Controlled With Puppet

Add a plush puppet to never ending list of Wii accessories. Zoink Games is packing one with every copy of Wiiwaa since it’s used to control the game. Players stuff a remote in the puppet’s mouth and play with it to control the game. Motions like walking, jumping, dancing, and “crazy somersaults” are reflected on screen.

 

Wiiwa is said to have more than a dozen mini-games in addition to a pet sim where you have to feed and care for your orange fellow. As a concept, Wiiwaa scores discussion points for trying something unusual. Zoink Games hopes that will help the Sweden based studio find a publisher.

 

However, Zoink Games isn’t the only company with a Wii remote in a toy game. Babysitting Mama has a Wii remote powered toy baby peripheral.

    At first, I thought Crash Bandicoot got in a bad motorcycle accident.

    That’s a interesting idea and way of using the Wii remote. It reminds me of 2-XL, the robot that took cassette tapes to new heights. I was hoping to see more ideas like this.

      Hahaha! I didn’t think of Crash before, but I see the connection.

      It’s novel, but I wonder how well it will work. The Babysitting Mama baby was strange, you had to shake it vigorously — you know in the way you wouldn’t shake a real baby!
