Hello Henry Hatsworth

A platformer/puzzle hybrid

Earlier we reported on a game by developer Tiburon about a safari-outfit wearing chap on some quirky platforming/puzzler adventure. The game was announced for the DS but not named or dated. Now both of those pieces of information have been made available for hungry platformer fans.

The name of the game has been revealed to be Henry Hatsworth.

Robert Nashak, vice president of EA’s Casual Studios, had this to say:

We are excited to bring an indie-inspired new intellectual property to the EA Casual Entertainment Label with Henry Hatsworth that fuses together two styles of gameplay utilizing the two Nintendo DS screens like never before.

The innovative elements of the game have the potential to appeal to both Nintendo enthusiasts and more casual Nintendo DS players.

The game’s execuitve producer, Scott Walker, added:

Henry Hatsworth is an incredibly unique game. It’s a deep, challenging, and humorous game that you won’t want to put down.

The game will offer thirty levels spanning five worlds, with an additional twelve secret levels to seek out. The level on the top screen is different than the one on the bottom, and what you are doing in one will affect the other.

Henry Hatsworth will be available Q1 2009.
