Hudson is one of those publishers that has a tendency of sneaking up on us with something really surprising. My favorite game from the Tokyo Game Show was a little title of theirs named Hard Working People (Help Wanted in the US), which appears to be a family-friendly minigame compilation--until you discover its hilariously twisted premise. A meteor is about to strike the Earth, and the only way to save it is by doing your job. Talk about instilling fear into the working man! Marble Saga: Korinpa is a similar case. It seems like a lighthearted puzzle game that allows you to move a platform with the Wii remote, which controls how a marble rolls along its surface and into various goals and collectable gems. But hidden deep within this facade is a twisted secret: Your marble is a human being. Okay, well, it's really a Mii, but still. Take a look at this gameplay footage and tell me the Mii suspended inside this marble, limbs spread out, isn't at least slightly unsettling. Maybe just a little?

Marble Saga: Korinpa is due for release on March 17. In other words, your Mii has just a few weeks left to make a run for it. You can view previous coverage right here .
