WayForward was once working on a pictionary title for Wii U, according to the LinkedIn profile of gameplay engineer Brian Valdillez.

Valdillez mentions “Pictionary Universe” on his CV, which was on track for release in 2012. The game “implemented rudimentary functionality with recording and replay capabilities designed for uploading to Miiverse.”

Sadly, Pictionary Universe won’t be seeing the light of day. Valdillez lists the project as “cancelled” on his LinkedIn profile.

Between Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse as well as Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, there’s a lot of Shantae goodness coming our way in the near future. Regarding the former title, WayForward says that it’s almost done. The studio said in a Kickstarter update for Half-Genie Hero earlier this month that Pirate’s Curse “is nearing the finish line”.

Winter may have just begun, but Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is nearing the finish line! The team is working super crazy hard and the game just keeps getting more amazing with each passing day. By the time the last snowfall of Winter melts you should all be happily enjoying a brand new adventure in Sequin Land!

WayForward’s Matt Bozon posted a message on Twitter earlier this week saying than an update will be shared “soon”.


That was followed up a few hours ago with a new teaser image:
