Hex Heroes is a Party Real Time Strategy game coming soon to Wii U. Earlier this week, the developers posted another Kickstarter update, in which they talk about their time at the Game Developers Conference. They also talk about what their current work on the Wii U version:
Now that the show is behind us, it’s time for our programmers to bury their noses in the grindstone and hammer out that Wii U build. Once that’s done, we can start building a better relationship with Nintendo (as they’ll be able to play it and even help us optimize in Unity). It’ll be smoother sailing from there, as we’ll be fine-tuning controls, optimizing performance and adding content (like new environments and enemies)!

Futuridium EP Deluxe
Earlier today, MixedBag Games gave a small update about the Wii U version of Futuridium EP Deluxe. The developers are currently busy fixing bugs, and the game will soon head to QA once again. They actually have a release date in mind, and it might be announced soon if everything goes smoothly.
PixlCross is a Picross-like game coming out next week in North America, on Wii U. Today, 4colorrebellion posted an interview with the developers (PixlBit), which tackles the following topics: what the game is all about, whether they have plans for DLC or not, whether a Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS is possible, and what’s next for the studio.

Tiny Graveyard is a game mixing RPG elements (stats, storytelling) and Action / Adventure elements ( real-time combat, puzzle solving, and item collecting). The game is currently on Kickstarter, with a 80 000$ funding goal ($7 729 have been funded so far, with only 15 days to go). It might get a Wii U port if the stretchgoal is met but… the developers don’t say what the stretchgoal is for the Wii U version.
