This either says this game is no good, or that people don't care about WiiWare.

A little of both. The guys at Nordcurrent are super nice, though, so I try to not insult their games too harshly.

No update on the numbers at the site. They're having a hard time finding people to give this away to.

I believe the WiiWare games will transfer to the Wii U. Even if they don't, these download games will certainly make the system more attractive for resale (even if the game sucks ass).

I just got around to requesting the game. After playing so many 360 games and finding players who add me instantly, I'm not a fan of how hard it is to add people on Wii. :(

Agreed, the way you add a friend code on the wii is completely absurd.

I'm about to give up on this and turn off WiiConnect24 in order to save electricity.

Well, the amount of energy used is pretty negligible, but if it bothers you, just turn off WiiConnect24. You don't actually need it for this. If/when the game is handed out, you'll still receive it if WC24 is off; you'll just have boot up the Wii and check for yourself rather than having it notify you.

Are you sure about that? I didn't think you could receive messages on a Wii that's not connected? Also, my understanding is that WiiConnect24 uses a good amount of energy. While not a lot when compared to many things, since something like a coffee pot or a dryer aren't on and using electricity 24/7, it actually adds up more than you may realize.

I've never used WiiConnect24 and I've never had a problem receiving messages or free games. You just have to wait a little while after turning your Wii on. As for energy consumption, WC24 uses about 9 watts, which is roughly $0.02 per day. It's certainly more than the 1.3 watts (approximately) that the Wii uses without WC24 turned on, but it's still not a whole lot.

I'm not big on wasting either electricity or money. $6 a year vs .60 a year isn't a huge difference BUT why waste the money? Over the last 6 years that would have been $36 so far. Plus, the longer I leave it on, the more I am effectively paying for the game. I'll just turn it off. I'm tired of leaving it on.

Do exactly what it says in the first post then wait a couple years for them to get 800 people to do so then you'll get the game.

True, but there's no buyer's remorse associated with getting a shitty game for free. I agree on the whole that not all game ideas should be put into motion, but game design is a learning process. I'd still like to try it, especially since I know it wasn't created in a deplorable manner to ride off the coattails of a trend or another game's success.

That said, the last word I received was that they added me as a friend two months ago. I haven't turned on my Wii since... :-#

I would just call it dead. They are liked on my facebook feed and sure someone will post if they ever do give these out but I wouldn't count on it.

I've stopped topping this thread because I gave up on getting the game. Someone should post on their Facebook page and ask them about this.

The game looked like shit anyways, It's really not worth getting your panties in a bunch if they don't send it
Besides they never reached 800 (as far as we know)

It's been 5 months, you'd think they would send codes to those that registered.
