Flowerworks HD dev talks sales and future plans

Posted on August 7, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop

Nocturnal Entertainment’s Michael Shamgar has shared a sales update for Flowerworks HD: Follie’s Adventure. Although no specific figures were revealed, Shamgar did offer the following information to Nintendo Life:

  • US sales started strongly, but tailed off rapidly after the initial launch sale ended. Price has now been dropped to $4 USD.
  • European sales have been a real surprise — released two and half months later in EU — outselling the US lifetime figures by 50% within 3 weeks.
  • Total sales are now close to 50% WiiWare (unit) lifetime sales, which has been available for around 5 years.

Nocturnal does have an idea in mind for its next games. The studio is currently working on a story-focused title, though “a smaller, simpler arcade game” may come first.

According to Shamgar:

We have a “story-driven” game in the concept stage, but that’s likely to be a big project that may need a lot of funding and development effort.

We may release a smaller, simpler arcade game based around user-generated content (level editor will come with the game). I’m very interested in the potential of using the GamePad for all forms of user content creation, extending to a complete game creation system.
