Zack & Wiki Wii Demo

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ TreasureUntil someone finally pulls their finger out at Nintendo Europe and gives us a proper channel pimping videos and the occasional demo (like our Japanese friends with their swanky Everybody’s Nintendo Channel), I’m afraid we’ll have to make do with this. It’s a simple (one room) Flash demo of Capcom‘s point & click adventure, Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure.

It’s Wii-friendly so if you’ve bothered to grab the Internet Channel when they were giving it away free, you can pop along and s-l-o-w-l-y experience a taster of the game. Once you’ve done that, run out to your local videogame store and buy the damn game! Stuff like this deserves to be hugely successful and you know full well that if you don’t, all we’ll see on the Wii in the future is endless shitty party games. Do you want to be responsible for that? Well, do you!

Man, I miss The Secret Of Monkey Island-style games and I guess stuff like this is the closest we’ll get these days since LucasArts disappeared up it’s own arse to crank out nothing but shitty Star Wars titles. They even cancelled their Sam & Max game, leaving us with those pale episodic imitations from Telltale Games.

Damn, I was so upbeat when I started typing this post. /wrist
