WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames! (WW from here on), developed by Nintendo R&D1, was released in 2003 and instantly became one of my all-time favorite games. It’s a weird game. Weird mechanics, weird visuals, weird sound. When it came out I loved it for being different. On one tiny cart, you got more variety than some consoles entire catalogues. WW was in constant rotation on my GBA, lived in the bottom slot of my first DS, and now has taken up permanent residence in my GBA Micro. I tend to revisit this game every few years, but this time I wanted to take a closer look at it. To gain some insight to its development I’m going to start by looking at some relevant games from R&D1.
