The Pitch: Sega Sells Us On Wii FPS, The Conduit

How would developer High Voltage sum up their Wii shooter, The Conduit, in just one word?

The Pitch is where a developer has to answer five quick-fire questions about their game in 25 words or less. It's all about their ability to hone down their game to its bare essentials and tell us precisely why we should be interested.

And hopefully, it's a bit of fun for you guys.

So, to deliver our first ever Pitch, we have Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer at High Voltage. Eric, your time starts now!

Give me the The Conduit elevator pitch. If you are looking for a fun and high quality FPS built specifically for your Wii: The Conduit is it!

What sort of gamer is gonna dig The Conduit? The smart and incredibly good-looking gamers mostly. And people looking for a top-notch game exclusively for their Wii.

What's the first awesome thing I'll do in The Conduit? Shooting! The Wii Remote pointer is a natural extension of yourself and feels like you are actually in the game, unlike standard analog joystick controls.

What can I do in The Conduit that I can't do in any other game? Unparalleled console customization. In both single and multiplayer, The Conduit can be adjusted for your style of play through an extraordinary amount of real-time options.

Describe The Conduit in just one word. Finally!

How do you think Eric fared? Are you sold on his pitch for The Conduit?


    Wow...managed to not answer a single question. I hate PR people!

      I think you may have missed the point...

        plus Eric isn't even PR.

    im sold.

    So we should buy Conduit because A) it's exclusive to the Wii B) it's got UI customization and C) we can point and shoot?

    That's really the best pitch they could come up with? Those are pretty lacklustre selling points.

      I think not because it is exclusive to the Wii, but because you have a Wii, and you can finally get a "presumably" good shooting game. I don't really think Sega is planning on selling consoles with the game, but more trying to take a piece of the market.

      Considering that no other game on the market seems to match all 3 of those criteria, i think they're pretty solid selling points.
