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).
