GDC 2008: First LostWinds Screenshots

One of the first titles set to hit WiiWare when it launches in May is LostWinds, a colorful and enchanting platform adventure game from UK-based indie developer Frontier:

“LostWinds is an innovative game, and an exciting project for many reasons,” commented David Braben. “Not least the fact that it’s one of the large number of excellent concepts that have arisen through our long running internal forum discussions on game ideas. Frontier is packed full of talented game enthusiasts, and contributing creative ideas and feedback is actively encouraged. WiiWare offers a perfect extra outlet for that creativity, and I hope that LostWinds is the first of many games that will follow this process.”

As you can see in these first screenshots, LostWinds has a great charm about it.
