As far as I know, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King is a country-building simulator. Rather than play as a hero, you play as a king and try to help the community grow and prosper. There seems to be a story to it, as well, with some evil creature that opposes you.
Here's a few more WiiWare games that the rest of you might be interested in.
LostWinds a interesting platformer game in which you control a character (with left to right movement) using the Nunchuck and a wind sprirt with the Wii controller which you use to make your character jump, fight enemies and solve puzzles. The game plays a little bit like Kirby: Canvas Course.
World of Goo. This game is based on the an early prototype named Tower of Goo. This game is about building a structure out of Goo balls to reach a pipe and get a certain number of unused Goo balls to the into the pipe. The game has a Tim Burton like style to it. Here is the trailer for the game and 35 minutes of (PC) World of Goo footage.
Defend Your Castle is based off the flash game of the same name and is not a port. The game has been given one heck of a graphical makeover, 4 player co-op and cool new gameplay mechanics. It will cost 500 Wii points as well.
This is an image of the original flash game and below it is the WiiWare version.
Another two interesting WiiWare game that are being kept under wraps are Gravitronix that will support up to 8 players sharing Wii Remotes and Nunchucks and will cost 500 Wii points. The second game was the first WiiWare title announced, Plättchen Twist 'n' Paint is a puzzle/shooter that will have 12 player support, the first 8 players use the share the controller like in Gravitronix and the other 4 can use DK Bongos. The game will cost 1500 Wii points (the same as FFCC: MLaaK).
Creator looks emo, but Eternity's Child does look like a kickass game, so I might get it.
Luc Bernard is definitly not emo, his Eternity's Child game is based off a fairy tale he created. All the games he is working on a sort of like darkish fairy tales. Just recently his upcoming DS game "Imagnation is the only escape" got banned by Nintendo of America because it mentions the Holocaust.
Also I fixed my previous post up so the images are now viewable.

When the hell did everybody become so cheap?
Maybe because the Sony store (just an example) sells whole PSOne games for $6 (with the exception of Castlevania SotN which is $10 but...)
Yeah, exactly. When I can buy an Xbox game for $20 (AU$), $15 for Pokemon Ranch is ridiculous.
Some of the above games look much better, and seem to have much better pricing structures, too. I hope for more like that (assuming these ones aren't ridiculously lacking in content for the bargain prices)
Here's another WiiWare title that's been announced recently that will also use DLC, SPOGS Racing. Here's some info about the game below.
"In driver’s ed, they teach you that crashing into other vehicles is bad form. SPOGS Racing, from D2C Games, takes a different tack.
By careening into your competitors’ unusually shaped SPOGS Racers, you can take their parts - pre-owned engines, brakes, tailpipesm etc. - and use the spoils to upgrade your own ride. The automotive pick-pocketing takes place in a dozen venues, including traditional racing ovals, road courses, and stunt tracks.
When you’re not busy going SPOG-to-SPOG with rivals, you’ll fly off ramps and negotiate loops (also recommended in your driver’s ed class). Obviously, the SPOGS Racers are not your parents’ Camry. They’re designed to spin, drift, flip over, and (most of all) crash a lot. They’re also equipped with six kinds of weapons, which you can use to slow down your opponents so that you can mug them.
The title uses your choice of three control schemes, one of which is what has become the standard for motion control in driving games - you hold the remote horizontally with both hands and tilt it to steer. In addition to quick races, you can enjoy the game in Battle mode (essentially a nonstop series of collisions) and Season mode (which sees you through races on every track.)"
Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.
Aug 25, 2020 10:19:20 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.
Aug 25, 2020 11:51:55 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.
Aug 27, 2020 18:35:05 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.
