According to Netherlands-based developer Hugo Smits, a publishing deal gone bunk due to bankruptcy threatened the death of his first DS project, Flipper, but heartened by the DSiWare channel Nintendo has just opened, he’s decided to retool it as his debut downloadable.
Built around a voxel engine of his own design, as you can see above, Flipper‘s hook is exploding and repairing the landscape in each of the game’s levels in order to find a way to your lost goldfish — and Smits adds that the game will feature “multiple themed worlds… a time mode, and bonus levels.”
It’s not entirely clear how far down the official channels he’s taken the game and if it’s already been approved for later release, or if this is part of a campaign to do so, but either way, you can see more screenshots of the game here, and follow its progress via his blog.
