Four releases from publisher Unity Games Japan — Ballpoint Universe: Infinite, Girls Like Robots, Nihilumbra, Stick it to The Man!, and Teslagrad — were delisted from the Nintendo Wii U eShop in Japan on December 28th, 2016.
While Unity Games Japan gave a brief advanced notice ahead of the delistings, they offered no explanation. It is likely that their removal relates to the closure of Unity Games Japan and its parent company, Unity Games. Neither organization published another game after 2016 and all of their released titles were delisted by 2018. A few of these titles remain available from a different publisher or in specific territories.
The game was later delisted from the Nintendo Wii U eShop in North America, presumably between 2018 and 2019. This timeframe marks a period where several independently published releases were being removed from the platform, allegedly because Nintendo was no longer renewing their developer/publisher licenses.
About the Game
“Their faces are the playing pieces. The rules are their emotions! Ridiculously charming puzzles, wrapped around an epic tale of love and danger, topped off with an authentic old-time stringband soundtrack! The goal is to put every one next to their friends.
But you can’t please everybody all the time. Sometimes you gotta break hearts to save the day. And the day definitely needs saving: Volcanoes, exploding chickens, planetary invasion and a boy who just wants to dance with a girl.“
