Dream Alone Creeps Onto Nintendo Switch!

WARSAW, Poland – June 28, 2018 – Dream Alone, the macabre 2D puzzle platformer from Fat Dog Games and WarSaw Games where players can manipulate reality, is out today on Nintendo Switch and Steam for PC. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow in Q4 2018.

Skillfully avoid traps and monsters lurking in the darkness and face challenging boss battles over the course of Dream Alone’s frightening levels. Swap between hellish alternate realities to look for hidden paths or slow down time and create clones to overcome formidable obstacles.

Dream Alone is a grim fairy tale in which a mysterious illness creeps through a once pleasant village, sending its unfortunate inhabitants into a deep coma. A small boy whose parents have fallen victim to the disease must venture into the dark unknown of whispering woods, ghost towns and howling caves to seek out the mythical sorceress Lady Death, his only hope of finding a cure for this wicked plague.

Inspired by classic, silent black and white German expressionist films, Dream Alone illustrates a haunting world through the grayscale camera lens of these old-school horror favorites. Chilling sounds from the award-winning Dream Alone composer, Paweł ‘Fleczer’ Flanc, complete the experience with dark, hauntingly beautiful tunes that will cause one to think twice about turning off the lights.

“We wanted to capture the atmosphere of classic horror, and the Fleczer’s music instantly transports players into the game,” said Darek Skrzypkowski, CEO, Fat Dog Games. “Dream Alone is a fairy tale for players to take part in, with mysteries to uncover in the grand tradition of folklore.”

For more information, please visit Dream Alone’s official website and follow the game on Twitter and Facebook.

Dream Alone is currently available on Nintendo Switch as well as PC via Steam for $9.99 USD and supports English with subtitles available in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish and Japanese.

Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure – Comes to Nintendo Switch with Free Playable Demo!

Staffordshire, UK – Lightwood Games is proud to introduce its newest picture puzzle game on Nintendo Switch – with a free playable demo!

The trial version of Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure is available on the Nintendo eShop from Thursday June 28th, allowing players to sample this type of picture puzzle – a Japanese favourite – ahead of its release.

Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure is the newest picture logic puzzle from the makers of Pic-a-Pix Deluxe, the popular full-colour picross game which was released earlier this year.

Developed by Lightwood Games and featuring puzzles by Conceptis, it introduces a brand new style – and scale – of picture puzzle to Nintendo Switch users.

The game’s narrator, Phil, invites players to assist him in developing photographs taken on his travel adventures. His not-so-instant camera has captured pictures in the form of logic puzzles!

The solutions are stunning pixel-art photos from around the world, ranging from small introductory pictures to massive landscapes with more than 6,000 pixels to fill in!

Often described as a mix of minesweeper and picross, Fill-a-Pix has only one rule. Each clue number shows how many squares in a block of nine – the clue itself, plus the eight squares around
it – should be filled in black.

A full interactive tutorial is also included to make sure players understand all the techniques needed to get stuck in. The unique Smart Cursor feature makes playing fluid and satisfying.

Options to guide you towards the next move and to check your progress so far mean you’ll never get stuck.

The full version of Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure will be available to download on July 12th, 2018 on the Nintendo eShop. It contains 120 puzzles, including new puzzles which were not previously included in the Nintendo 3DS version. Pre-orders are now open.

Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure supports English, French, German and Spanish.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove Brings Home the Funk Fall 2018!

SAN FRANCISCO — JUNE 28, 2018 — ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove, the upcoming fourth entry of the beloved, funkadelic action roguelike series, releases later this year on consoles and PC. Greg Johnson, founder, HumaNature Studios, has issued the following statement providing a more exact release window and an update on the developer’s relationship with Adult Swim Games.

“We ARE releasing this year!! Right now we have our sights set on a fall release. We will be making a specific release plan announcement in regards to dates as soon as we have that nailed down.

Going forward Adult Swim Games is no longer going to be our publisher. Instead we are going back to self-publishing! Adult Swim Games has some other big titles they plan to launch this summer so when Back in the Groove pushed back, we both agreed that it made sense for them to hand us the reigns, rather than taking a chance on this getting pushed back any more. Also I’d like to say how deeply grateful I and all of us here at HNS are to Adult Swim Games. We wouldn’t have gotten this game to this point without them…seriously. Thank You Adult Swim!!

We are also going to be opening a closed beta within the next couple weeks for our early-access backers, and we’ll be looking for your feedback! Also, the Nintendo Switch version of the game is just about ready to be submitted for certification by Nintendo, and the other console versions are not too far behind. I’ll give you more details about all of this before this update is done.”
