Melbourne, Australia - Wednesday, 2 December 2009 - Nocturnal is proud to announce that Flowerworks® will launch December 7th for the WiiWare™ service in the US.

Under development for more than 18 months, Flowerworks combines flowers and fireworks in a groundbreaking action-adventure game, designed from the ground-up for Wii™.

In Flowerworks, the player takes the role of Follie– a friendly (but confused!) alien who crash lands on the mysterious planet Elilia, whilst transporting a cargo of Flowerworks seeds to her Aunty.

As Follie ventures away from the wreckage of her ship, she finds the planet to be unacceptably lacklustre and her self-confidence is shattered! She must explore the planet, rebuild her confidence, and unravel the mysteries of Elilia. By recovering her seeds and growing Flowerworks, she can transform the planet from drab to fab!

Flowerworks is a child friendly, pick-up-and-play title that will appeal to the entire family. The game is designed around the strengths of the Wii.

Flowerworks is available for 1,000 Wii Points™.
