Yesterday, Altered Matter announced that Etherborn (a gravity-shifting puzzle-platformer) will be released on the Nintendo Switch. Here’s what the game is all about:
Etherborn is a gravity-shifting puzzle-platformer where you play as a voiceless body in search of your meaning as you explore dreamlike, Escheresque levels. Traversal is built around your unique sense of gravity that anchors you to any surface you touch. Moving through the environment becomes the puzzle in itself, where each level acts as a sort of organic Rubik’s Cube that players need to explore, manipulate and shift their gravity on in order to decipher the way forward.

Three Fourths Home: Extended Edition
A few days ago, [bracket]games and Digerati announced that Three Fourths Home: Extended Edition (an affecting short story with a striking, minimal art style) will be released on Nintendo Switch on May 10th in Europe and North America.
Here’s all you need to know about it:
In her mid-20s, Kelly has been forced to move back to Nebraska. Back to that flat expanse, that seemingly endless sea of rustling cornstalks peppered by rusty silos and rustier towns. A typically intense Midwestern storm is approaching while Kelly is out. She needs to get home. In the 20 miles between her grandparents’ crumbling barn and her parents’ house, she receives a phone call from her mother…
Assume the role of Kelly during her drive through the storm. While travelling through a stylized representation of rural Nebraska, players navigate an extended conversation between Kelly, her parents, and her younger brother. Through dialogue choice and simple driving mechanics, the story delves into a specific moment of these characters’ lives and their relationships with one another.
- Affecting narrative that touches on a variety of issues, including disability, adulthood, and familial obligation
- Striking visuals, original soundtrack, and ambient sound effects combine to create an intensely powerful atmosphere
- Keep driving to keep the conversation going – stop, and time slows to a crawl
- Almost 800 unique dialogue choices shade the story differently based on how you play
- Includes ‘Idling in the Rubble’ – an epilogue that expands upon the main story
