Nnooo, the Australian developers behind the abstract puzzle game EscapeVektor, is releasing Cubemen 2 on Nintendo's Wii U, making it the first indie game to offer cross-platform multiplayer and user-generated content on the system.
The title features a single-player mode and the multiplayer mode supports up to six players. Currently, there are 4,000 user-generated levels created on other platforms, which Wii U users will have access to, along with customisable Cubemen skins and global leaderboards.

"I'm really proud to be able to announce this," said Nic Watt, creative director at Nnooo. "We've spent the last few months working with both Nintendo and 3 Sprockets, the game's developer, to make this a reality. Cubemen 2 is an amazing game and a great fit for Nintendo players. We can't wait to see how creative they are, whether in tactical multiplayer online or in the new levels they build."
Currently available on Steam and iOS, Cubemen 2 is slated for release from late 2013 to early 2014 in the U.S., Europe, Australia and New Zealand as a downloadable Wii U title. Pricing will be announced at a later date. In April, the developers were given a nod from Sony to develop new titles for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita platforms, and is currently working on a new title for the platforms.
