Memory of Us
Earlier this week, Crunching Koalas announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Memory of Us. This is a puzzle-based, side-scrolling story game about touching tale of a friendship between a girl and a boy. It features narration by the one and only Patrick Stewart, and is developed by Juggler Games. It will be released in Q4 2018.
Here’s a trailer and some details about the game:
My Memory of Us is a puzzle-based, side-scrolling story game of hope and heroism in the face of absolute terror. Story, narrated by Patrick Stewart begins in The City – a place inspired by pre-Second World War Warsaw, where a young boy and girl from two different worlds come together to be kids, free to play and enjoy life. War breaks out and the children, faced with forced separation, with your help, may find a way to stay together and survive the threat of the evil occupation of their world.
- A moving story about friendship and love in dangerous times
- Beautiful, sketch-like graphics inspired by naïve art
- Pair mechanics: take control of two separate? characters with different skills and abilities, or control them as a pair
- A grotesque tale mixed with bittersweet humor
- The events shown in the game are based on actual stories from war
- A dialogue system built around the language of symbolic pictures
- Various logical puzzles in 2.5D
- A story that offers deeper meaning, set in historical realities
Finally, here’s some screenshots:

World of Horror
Earlier this month, Panstasz and Ysbryd Games announced World of Horror for the Nintendo Switch. It’s a unsettling cosmic horror retro RPG, to be released next year on the Nintendo eShop. It will be playable in English (and other languages, to be announced at a later date).
Here’s a trailer and some details:
The Old Gods are reawakening, clawing their way back into a world that’s spiraling into a mysterious madness. In a small, seaside town of Japan, the population’s sanity is dwindling and otherworldly, grotesque creatures terrorize those who call the place home. It’s the end of the world and the only solution is to confront the terror reigning over the apocalypse.
Navigate this hellish, roguelite reality through turn-based combat and unforgiving choices. Experiment with the events of a playthrough by building a deck of event cards to discover different outcomes for your battles against the darkness. Different decks may even unlock new mysteries or clues.
WORLD OF HORROR features branching stories with five playable characters to brave the chaos, each with their own story and a different perspective on the events that unfold. Unravel puzzles and mysteries through spells that sacrifice sanity. Uncover disturbing and shocking clues. Diligently search every nook and cranny, scouring for helpful items that may come in handy in another twisted encounter.
Experience the quiet horror of this love letter to the works of Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft. WORLD OF HORROR is free of typical jump scares, relying solely on its unnerving environments and amorphous terrors to create a gnawing sense of dread. Complimented by haunting chiptunes and a 1-bit art style with a variety of available palettes, WORLD OF HORROR presents a series of frightening and unsettling accounts that linger well after stepping away.

Last month, PQube announced yet another game for the Nintendo Switch: Razed, a lightning-fast speed-runner developed by Warpfish Games, releasing this October. Here’s a trailer and some details:
RAZED is a game focused on speed, with the player charged with making it to the finish line in the quickest time possible, dancing and darting across dynamic levels littered with obstacles designed to take you down. Power boosting skills unlocked along the way can send you soaring – sometimes literally – with every second saved edging you closer to a triumphant run. In short, RAZED’s rather manic mantra is go fast, or die trying.
- Non-stop escalation: Sprint through 60 dynamic levels spread across six unique worlds, each with a distinct visual style, unlockable abilities and pulse-pounding boss battles.
- Chart your own course: Veer off the beaten path and carve your own way through levels to achieve seemingly impossible times and unlock the S ranks.
- Online leaderboards and ghost data: Challenge the world via online leaderboards, and race against friends’ ghosts in a game of asynchronous one-upmanship.
- Fuss-free speedrunning: Nobody wants to wait around while striving for perfection. Falling short of your target time? Simply jab the restart button to return to the start of the level without any loading times.
- Secret challenge levels: Employ all your different skills and abilities to find RAZED’s toughest maps and tackle them head-on.
Finally, here’s some screenshots for the game:

The Gardens Between
Last month, The Voxel Agents announced The Gardens Between for the Nintendo Switch. It’s an adventure puzzle game where you have to manipulate time in order to guide two best friends through a surreal world of mysterious garden islands.
Here’s a trailer and some details:
Arina, a headstrong girl, and Frendt, a boy wise beyond his years, fall into a series of vibrant, dreamlike island gardens peppered with everyday objects that hold a special significance to the duo. Together they embark on an emotional journey that examines the significance of their friendship: the memories they’ve built, what must be let go, and what should never be left behind.
Designed as an homage to the enduring power of friendship, The Gardens Between places you in control of not the characters themselves, but the force which will change and shape their relationship: time. In the mysterious realm they find themselves transported to, cause and effect are malleable and time flows in all directions. Solve puzzles to reach the apex of each isle and light up constellations of memories, illuminating threads of a bittersweet narrative.
On Nintendo Switch players will be able to follow Arina and Frendt on the go, solving mind-bending puzzles on a break at work or enjoying the gorgeous environments with friends at a party. The console’s HD Rumble feature brings the game’s lush world to life, underscoring curious moments of time and imagination.
