Not the Switch with that one Zelda game on it, but instead an indie game, Switch will be released on Steam on March 7 and Xbox One later this spring. Featuring over seventy levels spanning five worlds, Switch is a 2D puzzle platformer that challenges players to speedrun through grueling situations and test their reflexes.
“In times when people immerse themselves in social media rather than nurturing real relationships, it’s inevitable every now and then to feel lonely and out of touch. With this in mind, we wanted to create a narrative led platformer, that modern players could emotionally connect to. We finally concluded – is it not me, myself and I that every person best identifies with?”, said Bharat Nag from Threye Interactive. “The core game mechanic of switching between a small ‘i’ and a capital “I” perfectly illustrates how the self-centered character abandoned by his friends transforms into a loving and all encompassing version of himself”.
Switch introduces a unique switching mechanic which not only affects the platforms in several ways but also grants a double jump, which leads to situations demanding interesting choices to be made within split seconds. The game boasts a minimalist 2D art style and rich soundtrack.
