Stickman Super Athletics was confirmed for release in Europe on Thursday through the weekly Nintendo Download report shared earlier today. In North America, we now know that the game will release on the same day, according to an eShop listing. Stickman Super Athletics will cost $2.49.

Following yesterday’s news that Stickman Super Athletics is coming to the European 3DS eShop on August 4, CoderChild has published a (low-resolution) trailer for the game. We have that below.

The video also comes with the following information:

CoderChild has lined up its next game for the 3DS eShop. In Europe, Stickman Super Athletics will be available on August 4. A North American release should be coming at some point soon as well.

It’s a bit unclear as to what Stickman Super Athletics actually is. We only have this GIF to go off of at the moment:


Having previously made games like Zombie Incident and Words Up! Academy for 3DS, CoderChild is now setting its sights on Wii U. The indie developer is creating 7Nights, a platformer with run-and-gun gameplay which “tells the story of a human being condemned to live doomed for life.” Character customization and outfit selection will play a role in the experience.

Here’s a look at the game:

7Nights has been in development for about seven months. It’ll be a few months before the project is complete between the rest of development, time to master, and remaining work specifically for Wii U.

The previously-announced WordsUp! Academy has been given a release date. CoderChild relayed news on Twitter yesterday confirming a May 12 release date. There’s no word on pricing, but it’ll probably cost just a few dollars.

Here’s a trailer for the game:


CoderChild has worked on a number of digital titles for the 3DS eShop, including Cubit The Hardcore Platformer Robot and Zombie Incident. Today, the indie developer announced its next project: “WordsUp! Academy”.

Here’s a brief overview:

“Becoming part of the Academy is not easy; its most illustrious members are waiting for you, ready to challenge you in this extraordinary puzzle and skills game. Prove your mastery of language in WordsUp! Academy… and dare to challenge them and get their approval!”

WordsUp! Academy will allow you to learn Spanish, German, English, French, Italian and Portuguese. The game will have “tens of thousands of words” as well as “6 game modes from a counterclockwise to a relaxing mode where you can test your knowledge”. Top scores can also be posted to online leaderboards.
