October saw Melodias become the 100th WiiWare game, a feat Braben was clearly proud of. "We launched the original LostWinds game on WiiWare with much anticipation, as it was such an exciting and new way to access games. We are now thrilled to be able to mark the 100th game launch with LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias."
