Poisoft has a curious looking game called Oudaa or Order. The WiiWare title puts players in the role of a king. From the comfort of your throne you dispatch heroes and build your kingdom.
You could storm into other countries and declare military might. Or use diplomatic options to avoid war. Kings can ally with countries, even the antagonistic demon country by imposing embargos on healing herbs. For 1,000 Wii Points ($10) Order sounds like a pretty deep game.
Since events are described with words and you expand your infrastructure through menus Order is also a text heavy game. Even though Poisoft is a new developer (they were formed in 2008!) a game this large looks big enough for a niche publisher like Xseed to pick up.
