The success of Dark Void Zero could inspire similar titles in the future.

In an interview with Game Set Watch, Mike Mika, developer behind the DSiWare title Dark Void Zero, expressed his desire to create similar titles in the near future. Dark Void Zero, inspired by the recent HD console release, is a DSiWare title that emulates a classic NES game, complete with a fictional back story about the game's existence. Mika expressed the following:

"When we were doing this, about halfway through we realized that this was actually turning out to be something really fun and that other people would enjoy it. For a while, we just though, 'Hey, this is satisfying our geeky needs, and we don’t know how many people out there would really like it.'

But now, it’s starting to look like a lot of people like this sort of thing. And the response we’ve gotten is so positive that it’s going to be hard to think that we wouldn’t follow up with something along these lines".

Dark Void Zero is currently available on the DSi Shop for 500 DSi Points ($5).

Ironic considering that Dark Void Zero was considered better then the HD game itself.

I haven't played the HD DV, but DV0 is a fun, fun (short) game.  I welcome this news.

DV0 also came out on Steam recently but it uses activation limited SecuRom.

Though it was a good HD release, unlike DV, but I think Bioshock Zero could be re-imagined as a top down Ikari Warriors shooter with MetroVania maps and exploration.

BioShock Zero? Really?

I'm guessing the well is running dry.

Look at the "third party DRM" entry on the right.

I didn't know it was on PC at all. I may give it a try, although I'd much rather play it with a controller (like on WiiWare). SecuROM doesn't make any difference to me -- I don't even own five computers.

It's enough if you change hardware stuff in your comp five times. I'm also not sure those activations apply to the same hardware even after an OS reinstall.

iTunes DRM only allows about five installs, and you don't hear much crying about that. As long as you an uninstall it to reclaim one, it shouldn't be a problem.

People used to complain a lot about iTunes DRM, but most of them stopped complaining once Apple stopped using it

Securom doesn't always come with a reclaim option.
