Emergent Game Technologies has announced that Portugal based developer Biodroid Productions will use its Gamebryo engine to develop a Wii title based on the South American Chiquititas IP. Emergent says Gamebryo will give Biodroid developers access to Wii development features such as animation tools, a Wii-specific viewer, libraries and APIs aimed at simplifying pipeline integration. Known in English as Tiny Angels, Chiquititas is an Argentinian television show that has since spawned branded clothing, a magazine, music albums and a stage musical based on it, with a feature film to release later this year. The company says Chiquititas for Wii will be a third-person platformer with action and puzzle elements, based around the show's lead character who runs a home for orphans. It will implement plot elements, musical style and video from the original series. Emergent CEO Geoffrey Selzer commented, "Developing Chiquititas into a video game is a perfect example of why we created Gamebryo for the Wii. This exceptional brand has endless possibilities, and building it on Gamebryo leaves the future open for continued evolution of the title. Gamebryo's Wii optimization enables Biodroid to focus on custom features, content and gameplay to make Chiquititas a truly unique Wii title."
