It breaks our little hearts that the incredible number-sliding recreation Threes by no means made it to Change, however… we get it. Simply in case, although, if any of the individuals who labored on it are studying this: we might positively play it. Simply in case.
However excellent news: the creator of Threes, Asher Vollmer, simply introduced a one-two-punch of recent studio and new recreation, and the sport is coming to Nintendo Change! Woo!
“The game combines satisfying pinball physics with tactical decision making. Pick a style of attack, line up the best angle, and launch!”
The brand new studio is known as Vodeo Video games (glorious), and the sport is Beast Breaker, a ball-bouncing recreation within the vein of Holedown, however with a twist: as a substitute of breaking blocks, you are breaking beasts – therefore the title, duh.
Additionally, as a substitute of enjoying a ball, you will be enjoying as Skipper, a tiny mouse – and boy, can we love video games about tiny mice.
The Vodeo Video games creed is all about “making high quality games regularly and sustainably,” in line with Vollmer, and although we do not have specifics on what meaning, it is not troublesome to search out tales of abuse and irritating work environments within the video games business.
With a group that features one of many co-directors of Life Is Unusual: Earlier than The Storm, the sound designer of Hyper Mild Drifter, and one of many writers from Cozy Grove, it is already a star-studded manufacturing with lots of expertise.
If we sound excited, it is as a result of we’re – Threes was a masterclass of straightforward, finely-tuned recreation design, and though Beast Breaker is a considerably greater endeavor, we’re eager to see the way it seems.
There isn’t any launch date but, however we do have affirmation that it will be coming to Change alongside the PC launch.
