Not Yet have announced a game for the Nintendo Switch: WarriOrb, an action platformer. It will be released on October 8th in Europe and North America.
Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:
Demons, giants, mutants, and a talking Ball with hybrid limbs?! In WarriOrb you play as a mighty demon trapped in an unlikely body. The path ahead is not an easy one. Will you do whatever it takes to regain your freedom?
WarriOrb is all about regaining your freedom – and your original demonic form. After all, you are the Spirit of the Unknown, forced into a pathetic ball body and blamed for the failure of a Very Important Summoning Spell – one that was supposed to bring the Wizard’s daughter back to life (but didn’t). Now it’s up to you to find another way to resurrect her… Such is life.
- Trapped in a Ball: Explore a tragic story of loss and desperation hidden behind a comic tale.
- Sweet Freedom: Run, jump, bounce and roll your way to freedom!
- Platforming Skills: It feels like everything is out to get you … You got that right! Challenge your skills and reflexes against the deadliest of traps.
- Think, Think, Think: Solve challenging puzzles in between traps!
- Get Social: The world is ending! Chat with friendly and unfriendly fellows along the way about it.
WarriOrb (Switch – eShop) comes out on October 6th in Europe and North America.

Sword of the Necromancer
JanduSoft and Grimorio of Games have shared the first in a series of 3 Dev Diary videos for Sword of the Necromancer:
And here’s some more details:
Sword of the Necromancer is a top-down action roguelike with a unique twist: you can resurrect any enemy you kill as an undead minion to fight alongside you! On top of that, there’s a fluid combat system with a smorgasbord of weapons and gear to choose from. Advance through the dungeon and weigh the consequences of what armaments to equip as you amass your little army of the undead!
As you descend this procedurally-generated dungeon, you’ll have to make some tough, tactical decisions. Should you fall in battle you’ll lose all your gear and half of your level, so be careful! If you’re really feeling adventurous, you can clone yourself, allowing for a friend to jump in for some two-player local co-op.
