After working on Chibi Robo and Captain Rainbow, Skip focused their efforts on Nintendo’s Art Style series. Three Art Style games have been released on WiiWare domestically: Orbient, Cubello, Rotohex. Strangely none of them have been released in Japan. Skip’s home country got their first taste of Art Style from the DSiWare store.
Decode, a puzzle game where you arrange groups of numbers so their sum is ten, was one of the first Art Style games for the Nintendo DSi. Looks like it’s going to be one of the first Art Style DSiWare games to come overseas too. The OFLC rated D-Code with Skip as the designer and Nintendo as the publisher. Sounds an awful like the “Decode” game currently on Japan’s DSiWare store and unless the two companies are working on a strikingly similar sounding project we’re going to see Decode released internationally as D-code.
