Super Icon

A couple of weeks back, Life of Pixel made its way to the North American Wii U eShop. We now have some footage of the game, which you can find below.

Super Icon just released Life of Pixel on the North American Wii U eShop this past Thursday. The studio is also planning on bringing Vektor Wars to Wii U, which is targeted for release in 2-3 months.

Vektor Wars is “an 80’s neon future inspired first-person cyber shooter.” It features arcade shooter gameplay, nine worlds to liberate, and more.

Super Icon is also working on its next new title called “Best Buds VS Bad Guys”. We don’t have official confirmation about it coming to Wii U just yet, but Super Icon is a big fan of the console, and more games are planned for the system.

Here’s the rundown on Best Buds VS Bad Guys from Super Icon:


Best Buds VS Bad Guys is a pixel platform game based on the bond between two best buddies. The idea came about from my son, Lucas and myself – we call each other Best Bud in real life, and we both thought it would be fun to create a game where we have to battle bad guys in a computer world.

This is even more significant as Lucas has Asperger’s, and he wanted to tell and show people how working together as a team means you can overcome difficulties and be successful. it is about good over evil, about friendship, overcoming difficulties, showing you can make a difference! All presented in a beautiful 16-bit classic arcade machine art style, with a thumping good chip-tune soundtrack.

And as it is a Super Icon game, there will be plenty of references to arcade classics such as Ghosts’n Goblins, Green Beret, Bionic Commando, Black Tiger and loads more!
