Student-created games involve space, jellyfish, and a blob.
Four games selected as the best annual entries from the Nintendo Game Seminar are now available to download for a limited time - if you live in Japan.
The games are available through the Wii's Minna no Nintendo Channel, DS Station, and Nintendo Zone, with staggered releases. The seminar website encourages players to fill out surveys after they have played the game.
An outline of the four games, translated from the Seminar website, follows:
Pull and turn using an unseen power!
Use gravity to guide shooting stars across the sea of the universe.
Control is easy - just press where you want to create gravity.
Shooting stars will be pulled by that gravity and start to move.
Use the power of the shooting stars to return light to stars.
Fresh controls and a wide galaxy are awaiting you.

You draw, I flow.
Using the touch pen to create flows, lead the jellyfish holding the prince's light and the other jellyfish to the goal.

Enemies all have their own characteristics, so plan carefully, and proceed while avoiding them
