Curve Digital has issued some screenshots from the upcoming Wii U eShop game Action Henk. We’ve gathered them up below.

Curve Digital will be bringing The Swindle to the European Wii U eShop on September 10, according to a listing on Nintendo’s UK website. Note that the company has not technically announced this date. When Curve officially announces the news, we’ll probably be hearing about when it’s coming to North America as well (perhaps the same day).

Curve Digital hasn’t slowed down with its Wii U announcements. Today, the company announced that it will publish Hue on a number of platforms, including the eShop.

Hue is described as “a stark puzzle platformer where the aesthetics and mechanics are intertwined.” An official overview is posted below.

When Hue’s mother becomes trapped in the mono world, he gains access to the colour ring – a device which allows him to alter the perception of colour. Embarking on a mission to foil the evil intentions of the despicable Doctor Gray, Hue begins a journey which will not only shape him as person, but alter the world forever.

Key to the game is the ability to shift specific colours, a thrilling game mechanic which offers a host of new puzzle possibilities. Players can manipulate the environment in order to reveal hidden routes, avoid threats, remove hazards, defeat adversaries, create platforms and more…the gameplay possibilities are endless.

Hue has been funded by Kuju Startups, a video games investment fund who help great indie developers bring their dream ideas to market.

Hue is launching on Q1 on Wii U. View the game’s teaser trailer released earlier this year below.
