Konami gets moist about Wii

With Dewy's Adventure.

Konami has piped up about a new Wii game it's developing, provisionally called Dewy's Adventure. It's about a little water droplet that has to try and save the world from evil - by being tilted around a lot.

Yes, it's another tilt-the-world game, and this time you're a drop of water, which can also transform into ice and steam under the right circumstances to help solve puzzles, and eradicate the Black Water that's smothering the world.

It's being produced by the chap behind Eledees (Elebits to Americans), says Konami, although they don't seem to have actually said who that was - probably in case you live next door to him and start interrupting dinner to ask him questions.

Like Eledees, which is out in the UK soon, Dewy's Adventure will feature an edit mode in addition to the story mode, allowing players to create new areas and swap them with friends using that there Internet.

It sounds like it could be quite good, and will slot in neatly among what's rapidly becoming the Wii's most popular genre; competing for affection alongside the likes of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, Kororinpa and Mercury Meltdown Revolution.

Have a look at the first screenshots to get a better idea of how it works, and since you're no doubt wondering, here's a bit more of the back-story to tide you over:

"The game is set on a world where pure water and green forests have flourished, and which once enjoyed centuries of peace and prosperity under the careful watch of the Elder Tree," says Konami.

"However, the evil Don Hedron has seized control of the Elder Tree and transformed the world into a gloomy world smothered by Black Water.

"Using the last of its remaining power, the Elder Tree has created a small droplet of water (the titular Dewy) and granted it the power of the elements with the hope that it could eradicate the Black Water and restore peace to the world."

See how it does later this year.
