Okay, let's get past the fact that the letter is a bad game.

If you haven't played The Letter, I pray you never get the urge. It's a bad game! It's not even the "it's so bad that it's good" kind of bad. It's just a bad game all around. When I say bad game, I don't mean the developer aimed high and just missed the mark.

It's just.... bad, okay? The game uses nothing but preexisting assets, it has blurry textures, and the "writing" is horrible. A monkey could code a better game.

Next point: I know what you guys are going to say. "Nintendo can't remove a game just because it's bad"

How about the broken promises? The developer sold the game by promising buyers updates but there hasn't been anything. He said that the only reason he calls it a "game" is because Nintendo doesn't allow early access titles.

This means that he purposely put and unfinished product on the Eshop and is taking his sweet time delivering the content he promised his suckers... I mean "fans" (people who don't know what a good game is).

No. As it stands they are the only third party making games for the Wii U.

And lose their only 3rd party developer? No

Yes; remove The Letter, stop Maze, and stop Spikey Walls, for the love of god.

The Letter is getting more attention than other indie games. Sad.

Yes, it's interesting that putting out a terrible product actually gets you far more exposure than a moderately good product.

As long as they price their games accordingly (sell dirt dirt cheap), I have no problem with them.

You should try playing one. You will change your tune pretty quick.

I'd like to see Treefall someday graduate to making legitimate, engaging adventure games. He can't do that without building up a little funding and hiring some help.

There's nothing wrong with starting small.

Yes there is if those small starts give you the rep of doing crap work. Very hard to shake that initial impression
