Forgive the lack of updates on the meeting with Amaya-san--getting ready to make the trip back across the Pacific and I'm still exhausted. Yes, he did play the game. We also played World of Goo, MegaMan 9 and a few other Wii games.
Hopefully the photo above will be enough for now. From what I've been able to gather it's the first photo ever released of Pixel. And, yes, he is drawing on/signing a Wii. Is it a candidate for world's coolest Wii?
