Pikmin is a strategy video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube video game console in 2001. Pikmin is the first game in the Pikmin series of video games, and the third game for the gamecube overall. It was designed by Shigeru Miyamoto. Pikmin was released on October 26, 2001 in Japan, December 2, 2001 in North America, and June 14, 2002 in Europe. The sequel, Pikmin 2, was released in 2004. The image song, "Ai No Uta" by Strawberry Flower, appeared in the Japanese commercials for the game, but soon became an unexpected hit song, eventually eclipsing Pikmin's sales. As of March 31, 2002, Pikmin has sold over one million copies.
Will sometimes hang on a black screen when the day ends. This mostly happens when using save states on that day.

|r7687||Windows 7 x64||AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400 @ 2.2GHz||nVidia GeForce GT 440||Perfect, but having more than 60 active Pikmins causes the game to slow down.||Endres|
