Today’s Indie news: latest devblog post for Yooka-Laylee, but also…

  • RiftStar Raiders
  • Nnooo
  • Elliot Quest
  • Petite Games
  • Drop It: Block Paradise


Earlier this week, Playtonic Games posted the first post-launch devblog post for Yooka-Laylee. Unfortunately, said post doesn’t have any new details about the Nintendo Switch version.

Right now, the developers are working on the next big update, which will add signifncant improvements and some of the most requested features such as the ability to skip dialogue faster, bypass cutscenes, or reduce the gibberish voices. Naturally, those improvements and features should be available in the Nintendo Switch version at launch!

The devblog post also introduces two new Playtonic Games staff members: Matt Griffin and Chris Woods. Finally, Fangamer added more stuff to their selection of Yooka-Laylee goodies: click here to check them out for yourself!

RiftStar Raiders

Yesterday, Climax Studios teased RiftStar Raiders for the Nintendo Switch with the following picture:

Naturally, the game is pretty much confirmed at this point, but we’re still waiting for a proper announcement (which is probably coming in the upcoming weeks, at E3 2017 for example).

Last week, Nnooo announced they would be publishing not one, but 5 new games:

  • Mallow Drops:

The multi-award-winning gravity puzzle game from Australian developer John Kane. Help two kiwis, Marsh and Mallow, rescue their eggs in a shattered world and get to the exit! Turn everything upside down as you slide, shift and move through the game’s mix of platformer combined with gravity-defying sliding block puzzles. Watch out for the Wooly Jumpers and Dirty Underbears who will make your life difficult and avoid the dreaded Dropbears at all costs! Getting to where you need to go is half the fun – just be sure to look before you leap.

  • Armed with Wings: Rearmed:,

A 2015 PAX Aus Indie Showcase Winner from Australian developer Daniel Sun. The game is a 2D action/puzzle platformer set in a dangerous world ruled by darkness and imperial tyranny. Use your sword to summon the power of Lightning and Thunder, assisted by your eagle companion who explores the skies to scan the road ahead, distract guards, move objects and collect unreachable items. Tyrant King Vandheer resides in his palace, waiting for your arrival. Your goal – to challenge and defeat him.

  • Rogue Singularity (by Considerable Content)
  • Anodyne (by Analgesic Productions)

All 5 games could be coming to the Nintendo Switch, as they’re “currently being assessed for their suitability” on the platform. Hopefully, Nnooo will have some good news for us in the upcoming weeks!

Drop It: Block Paradise

Bad news for players looking forward to Drop It: Block Paradise on Wii U: the release has been further delayed due to an unfortunate save bug. If everything goes well, the game should be sent back to Nintendo for lotcheck this week-end.
