Today’s Indie news: demo for Nine Parchments, but also…
- Shakedown Hawaii
- Dimension Drive
- Blossom Tales: Tales of the Sleeping King
- Pinball FX3
- Iro Hero
- Squareboy vs Bullies: Arena Edition
Nine Parchments is the latest game from Frozenbyte (Trine, Has-Been Heroes), and it looks like it’s almost ready for release (it’s still in testing, though). If you really cannot wait for the full game, then head over to the Nintendo eShop right now: you will find a demo there!
This demo allows you to play the following levels:
- The tutorial at the Astral Academy
- A beautiful beach level
- A Boss Fight against the gigantic Treasure Mantis
But if you’re going to try out this demo, there’s a few things to keep in mind: some features have been disabled (namely: getting additional speels, the skill/leveling system, online co-op), but are found in the final game (they were not removed or anything). You can play the demo in co-op (up to 4 players, local-only), and even play with a single Joy-Con.
Right now, the demo is only available in Europe and North America, but it will be released in Japan soon.
Finally, here’s the latest trailer for the game:
