Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles Will Be Arriving Soon on Nintendo Switch!

BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND – March 13, 2018 – Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, the open-world adventure from the former Activision producer and Rocksteady veterans at Prideful Sloth where players explore the vibrant but troubled island of Gemea, is coming soon to the Nintendo Switch. A new feature-packed photo mode allowing you to share beautiful images of the world with your friends also debuts on the Switch.

Gemea is a land filled with natural delights. The luscious forests, quiet shores, and frozen peaks are home to adorable creatures such as Fabbits and Squombles. These wild wonders beckon to those with a penchant for exploration. When a curious dark miasma floods the flora and fauna, it’s up to your hero to discover the origin of the strange substance. Create your own hero or heroine and embark on your journey of self-discovery across the gorgeous island and aid the people in need of your assistance.

Your hero quickly befriends the locals and discovers magical sprites that can dispel the dark energy known as Murk that plagues Gemea. Try your hand at farming, crafting, cooking, brewing, and fishing to create a sustainable lifestyle and help the people of the land.

Yonder’s story is spread across eight distinct biomes, each with its own day/night and weather cycles, hidden sprites, unique animals to befriend, and quests to accomplish, all at the player’s pace. There’s always something to discover behind every corner. Relax and unwind with Yonder on the Nintendo Switch – at home on the couch, on the bus, or from the comfort of your bed with a nice hot cup of tea!

“The beauty of Yonder is in its calming pace and relaxing gameplay. You’re free to explore the open world however you choose; it’s a beautiful, safe, inviting world,” said Cheryl Vance, co-founder and director at Prideful Sloth. “The Nintendo Switch lends itself to leisurely, comfortable play. It’s a great home for the unique experiences that Yonder provides.”

Yonder will be available digitally for $29.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop, and will be available via physical retail for $39.99.

Sci-fi Platformer Planet Alpha Lands on Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018!

March 2018, UK – Award-winning international games label Team17 and Denmark based independent developer Adrian Lazar today announced that the beautiful platform adventure game PLANET ALPHA has joined Team17’s games label.

PLANET ALPHA is an atmospheric side-scrolling platform adventure game. Combining fast platforming, creative puzzles, stealth mechanics and a unique art style to create an unforgettable experience.

You awake on a strange alien world that is home to many mysterious, exotic flora and fauna. As you explore the world around you, you’ll uncover the ability to rotate and control the planet. Is this world really as tranquil and serene as it first appears and what more will you discover?

Development on PLANET ALPHA initially took life in 2013 with Adrian Lazar working on the game solo in his spare time. In 2015 Lazar left his job at IO, having worked on Hitman (2017), Hitman:
Absolution and Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days, to focus on the game full time and recruited a small international team to support development.

“PLANET ALPHA is the work of passion of a small but very ambitious team. We are building something special and we’re putting everything we have into it. Developing the game for over 4
years has been a roller coaster, so when we looked for a publisher we were very selective.

“I am thrilled to have found in Team17 a partner who can offer us the resources that we need to bring this game to the players, but more importantly I’m excited to have a partner that truly believes in PLANET ALPHA as much as we do. I cannot wait to share our creation with the world,” said Adrian Lazar, Creator of PLANET ALPHA.

Debbie Bestwick, MBE, CEO of Team17 added, “At their best video games can take us to different worlds on amazing journeys. The world that Adrian and his team have made is one that I want to
spend time in. It’s such a pleasure to welcome PLANET ALPHA to the Team17 games label.”

PLANET ALPHA is heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch™ and PC in 2018.

Super Daryl Deluxe ready to brawl his way over to Nintendo Switch on April 10th!

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – March 12, 2018 – Super Daryl Deluxe, the RPGvania with a brawler-style combat system and hand-drawn comic aesthetic from Dan & Gary Games, will proudly display its first pathetic attempt at facial hair on Nintendo Switch in addition to the previously announced upcoming PlayStation 4 and PC releases. Super Daryl Deluxe will make things weird and save the world on April 10, 2018.

Water Falls High School, of course, is a perfectly normal multidimensional high school. Its classrooms literally whisk students away to alternate worlds coinciding with their subjects, where kids can do anything from arguing the value of capitalism with Joseph Stalin in History to offering a fist bump to Oedipus in Literature. You know, just like every other school.

What’s not normal are the missing students, the locked down classrooms, and the shadowy principal that no one has actually seen. Not to mention something about a secret that nearly destroyed the world 40 years ago.

Enter Daryl Whitelaw, the poorly-postured mouth-breather who just wants to make friends that has found himself the unlikely hero of this story. With the aid of a self-help book, Daryl can attain more than 45 powers, from thrashing enemies with an axe three times his weight to cleaning their faces up with a mop. Abilities can be customized and upgraded, making for endless playstyles and combinations.

While he’s got combat covered, Daryl’s going to need some help making friends. Luckily, he can complete side quests to increase his social rank, gain new passive abilities, and be less of a hopeless mess. Daryl can piece together some sweet gear to beef himself up, but at the end of the day he’s still rocking his snazzy headband and mullet.

Fashion icon he’s not, but it’s up to Daryl to find out what’s happening at Water Falls High School and what connection it has to that mysterious something or another that happened four decades ago. You know, the one that almost destroyed the world. Yeah, that one.

“Super Daryl Deluxe is a deep, explorative look into the male teenage psyche,” says Gary Porter, Gary of Dan & Gary Games. “Nah, just kidding. It is pretty good, though. You should check it out before all your friends so you can tell them how great it is and how you played it before they did and how much better than them you are.”

Super Daryl Deluxe will be available in English for $19.99 USD and €19.99.
