Like the Virtual Console, only one new WiiWare game was included in today’s Wii Shop Channel update.  However, at long last, the service appears to be showing signs of life again, as this doesn’t appear to be just another throwaway title, but actually a recognizable name: LIT.  Developed by WayForward Technologies (of Shantae fame), LIT casts players as Jake, a high school student trying to rescue his girlfriend and escape from the darkness that has taken over the building.  A mix of action and puzzle solving, player will use the Wii Remote like a flashlight, creating paths to other existing light sources in order to clear each area, and then you must take on the monstrously deformed school staff that also roam the halls.  LIT is available for 800 Wii Points.  The official description can be found below:

LIT (WayForward Technologies, 1 player, Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older—Violence, 800 Wii Points): Dark creatures have taken over Jake's high school, and it's up to you to guide him through each classroom in order to be reunited with his girlfriend Rachael. Existing light sources must be used smartly to create bridges of light for Jake to cross. One false step and Jake gets pulled into the darkness. Along the way he'll encounter twisted versions of his school's faculty, which must be battled in order to advance. LIT is a horror/puzzle game that requires the Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ controllers. It contains 30 levels, five boss battles, replay modes and several unlockables, including multiple endings, Dark Mode timed challenges and an unlockable character.
