Wii fans may not yet recognize the name Chillingo, but iPhone owners probably do. Along with Ngmoco, whose most popular game is Rolando (a LocoRoco-like platformer), the company is leading the charge where organized game development is concerned on Apple's platform. And in a recent interview with Pocket Gamer, Chillingo director Chris Byatte said that the studio was underway with an ambitious new project that it planned to release for both iPhone and WiiWare.
He described the still-unnamed title as "... a true Rolando killer with a 3D twist."
Rolando is widely recognized as one of iPhone's best games. Players maneuver spherical platform characters through colorful worlds by tilting the iPhone and by manipulating both the unwitting heroes and the world with their fingers via the system's touch-screen interface. Whatever Chillingo has planned for iPhone and WiiWare will probably play similarly given Byatte's description.
The only other detail the director let slip is that the so-called Rolando killer will also include a feature that enables players to purchase new worlds, thereby extending replay value. Whether or not this feature will make it over to the WiiWare iteration -- thus far, WiiWare games have not supported microtransactions -- has yet to be confirmed.
