About Monster loves you!
As a Monster of the village of Omen, your favorite snack is the fingers of small children and you chance to pop up in the most interesting places! What do you do when three angry bears discover a young child in their cabin? Or when you spy a wolf hunting down that woman with the red cloak?
As a Monsterling, your choices are simple ones. Do you chase those poor little mice (+1 Ferocity) or protect them from the dogs (+1 Kindness)? Do you come clean about that fungus your friends ate (+1 Honesty) or cover for them (+1 Bravery)? As a young monster, your choices determine your personality.
But all youngins must grow up. Monsters and Humans have been at odds for centuries, and there are Human villages on the other side of the enchanted woods. When Human children get lost in those dark and winding thickets, do you terrorize them for fun (+1 Ferocity)? Do you help return them to Human civilization to prove that not all Monsters are to be feared and hated (+1 Kindness)? Or do you fatten them up for Human foie gras? All this, to the backdrop of increasing tensions between Monsters and Humankind.
- Touch and Joy-Con support.
- Balance Bravery, Cleverness, Ferocity, Honesty, Kindness, and Respect to wield political power.
- Over 900 choices to make. Devour Little Red Riding Hood. Gobble up Hansel and Gretel. Eat the Three Little Pigs. Each choice you make will determine the monster you become!

Giebelstadt, Germany, October 24th: Are you eager to build the town of your dreams? To organize production chains, take care of the needs of your population and grow a small village into a large and prospering city? Then your wait will come to an end on November 9th, 2018, when HandyGames will publish Townsmen – the first medieveal city builder ever on Nintendo Switch – and let you build a town on your journey into town (or, indeed, anywhere).
Townsmen (Switch) is based on the long-lasting Townsmen series and comes with a carriage-load of content: players can pick between 26 different scenarios – such as protecting a city under siege from bandits or making sure the King’s birthday party is a huge success – or play one of 24 sandbox maps and build a thrilling town from scratch. It’s up to you as a wise ruler and careful planner to fulfill the needs of your beloved Townies, who follow individual daily routines.
In Townsmen Switch players can research up to 75 different technologies, 45 production buildings and 129 other structures, all of which need to be considered if you want to succeed: Townies appreciate short commutes to work and love to enjoy food or relax in nearby parks when off the clock. But with so many different elements to consider, including the elements themselves (seasons and weather strongly impact planing – Townies consume way more water during summer, for instance), crafting the perfect home won’t be simple.
Townsmen will be available for Nintendo Switch on November 9th 2018 for an SRP of 19,99 € / 19,99 $. The game is developed and published by HandyGames.

DALLAS, TX – October 23, 2018 – 3D Realms, the developer of classic first-person shooters including Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior, will collaborate with global PC and console publisher 1C Entertainment to co-publish Ion Maiden, which is developed by Voidpoint, to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q2 2019, in addition to the previously announced Steam release. Both companies will also collaborate on a new unannounced FPS based on the original Quake engine coming to all the same platforms as Ion Maiden.
Ion Maiden’s exclusive multi-hour preview campaign is available on Steam Early Access for $19.99 in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian. The retro first-person shooter developed in the Build engine, which powered Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, and Shadow Warrior, will simultaneously release on all platforms Q2 2019 in both digital and physical formats. In this prequel to 2016’s Bombshell, Shelly has to take down transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel.
While Ion Maiden utilizes a classic engine, Early Access players have still found the modern staples they’ve come to expect, including headshots, more physics and interactivity, widescreen support, controller support and auto-saves. 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment are taking the best of both worlds and cooking it all into a bloody stew.
1C Entertainment is responsible for the popular RTS series Men of War, the fantasy tactical role-playing games King’s Bounty, and World War II flight simulator series IL-2 Sturmovik. Collaborating with 3D Realms promises to bring both teams’ creative powers together and deliver the high-quality content gamers know both companies for.
“Presenting games like Ion Maiden to all of 3D Realms’ fans is our number one priority,” said Mike Nielsen, CEO of 3D Realms. “Partnering with 1C Entertainment means we can make our dedicated community happier by bringing Shelly to consoles.”
“I was always a fan of the old-school classic FPS titles Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, Max Payne and Shadow Warrior, so I am super thrilled to partner with a legendary studio such as 3D Realms,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov, CEO of 1C Entertainment. “As a global publisher, our goal is to bring top-quality titles to all the gamers around the world, and our cooperation with 3D Realms is a great addition to our portfolio. For me personally, it’s a kid’s dream come true.”
