Mixedbag brings forma.8 and more to Switch

by Luke HendersonAugust 18, 2017

Developer Mixedbag has announced that forma.8 will release on Switch next week, August 24th to be exact. forma.8 is a unique take on the proven Metroidvania action-adventure formula, with a striking visual style and a huge world to explore.

But that is not all Mixedbag are bringing to Switch, working with studios Santa Ragione and Broken Arms Games two more games are coming to the Switch, with the first Wheels of Aurelia from Santa Ragione coming in October. Wheels of Aurelia is a narrative road trip game set in the roaring Italian 70s, it tells the story of Lella, a restless woman driving on the roads of the western coast of Italy, the famous “Via Aurelia”.

This is an interactive fiction game in the shape of an isometric racer and with a focus on replayability: every playthrough lasts about fifteen minutes and there are sixteen different endings to discover.

The other title, ATOMINE is coming sometime in 2017, though an exact date has not yet been announced. The game is a twin stick procedural shooter rogue-lite set in a virtual world with minimalist design, where the player recounts on the screen the real events of STUXNET, the first weapon ever created in the form of computer virus.

In every run the player has to clear the level area from all the enemies in order to unlock the portal to the next level. During the run every killed enemy will leave on the ground XPs, energy and/or weapon modules.

More titles coming to the Switch is always a good thing, so do any of these grab your attention?
