Star Sky

It has been announced that Star Sky is headed to the Nintendo Switch on May 23rd, courtesy of Active Gaming Media. So far, only the Japanese release has been confirmed, but since we already have a trailer in English, there’s little doubt Europe and North America will get it on the same day.

In Japan, Star Sky is available for pre-purchase for 249 Yen, with the regular price set at 498 Yen. Unfortunately, this version of the game does not offer an English language option.

Fromto

Yesterday, Headup Games shared the first Devblog post for Fromto, with the developer explaining how this “childish” came to be. Here’s an excerpt:

When my kids started to make their first drawings (scribbles) I wondered how my own childhood scribbles looked like. I went to my parents and they gave me several boxes with many drawings that I made in my early days. While going through them I found a drawing that triggered the idea for Fromto. Well, actually it is a blueprint for Fromto – a drawing of a small race car going through an obstacle course on one sheet of paper. Awesome!

At that moment everything fell into place. I was going to make a game, a childish game. The way kids play with toy cars in a sandbox was going to be the experience. And to emphasize this childish aspect I would ask my kids to draw the backgrounds. And I would draw the rest of the game in a doodle scribble style to glue it all together.
