Indie Complains Of Having His Switch Games Turned Down By Nintendo 5 Times

Independent developer Wolfgang Wozniak, the creator of VA-11 HALL-A, has encountered many obstacles on his journey to bring his titles to Nintendo Switch.

Wozniak claims Nintendo has rejected his games 5 times, including the popular VA-11 HALL-A. Here’s what Wozniak has to say about his awful experience:

Nintendo of America specifically, has been uncharacteristically ambiguous surrounding what they are looking for in a game. We’ve been turned down by Nintendo of America five times. You will likely notice that most of the indie games on Switch are from one of those regions, have a big publisher behind them, or have experienced great success previously on Steam. If your work does not fall into one of those three categories, then it seems like Nintendo of America is not interested. I’m certain that we’ll be able to bring Switch owners something special in the future, but I am uncertain as to when that future will be.

One of his games were also turned down for being too “mature”. Doesn’t sound like a boob simulator though.

It’s a short and sweet game where two people have a conversation. It’s an adult situation, but there is no what you would call ‘adult content’ in it. Specifically, this was mentioned as being exactly what they were looking for, but too mature.

Do you think Nintendo is picking on Wozniak on purpose? Let us know in the comments!
