Yuji Naka Making Games For Windows Phones



We covered Naoto Ohshima. What about his fellow co-woker, Yuji Naka? After porting Let’s Tap to iPhones, Prope started working on a game for Windows phones.


His next game is called Ivy the Kiwi? and it’s sort of like Kirby: Canvas Curse. Players draw lines to create springy vines to guide a kiwi looking for her mother to a goal. See, you can’t directly control the kiwi, Ivy walks on her own. The storybook aesthetic is sharp and slingshotting the kiwi has potential for unique level design.


But, seriously Windows phones? Wouldn’t Ivy the Kiwi? be better positioned as a DSiWare download or an iPhone game?
