Data Design Interactive Presents NuYu
Data Design Interactive - a successful video games publisher and games developer, today unveiled NuYu editor lets you put yourself in the game by creating customisable characters that fit your personality. You can then use those characters in compatible NuYu games and even save them to your Wii Remote to take to a friend’s house.
A NuYu (pronounced New-You) is a customisable player character editor exclusive for our Popcorn Arcade Wii range. NuYu’s are customisable and allow the user to capture a likeness, caricature or personality of themselves and others. After creating them, they can be used as participating characters in NuYu compatible games.
The NuYu Editor will be first featured in our soon to be released Kidz Sports – Crazy Mini Golf.
NuYu’s are created through the NuYu Editor. After specifying a gender for the NuYu, the user can alter the shape of the NuYu’s head, its eyes, hair, eyebrows, nose, and mouth. In addition, the creator can give the NuYu glasses or facial hair as he/she desires, or give the face wrinkles, makeup or rosey cheeks, you can also add glasses and other accessories.
Many of the features can be fine-tuned by adjusting their size, position, and rotation to the center of the NuYu’s face. Furthermore using the on-screen keyboard, the creator can name the NuYu. NuYu’s have no impact on the actual gameplay, other than to identify a player visually in another way besides name. NuYu’s are intended to be an extension of the player, and in keeping with the Popcorn Arcade spirit of ‘Family Family Fun’, the user will be able to use their NuYu’s in future Data Design titles for the Wii.
