@Anti-Matter - Yes, they're new, but they appear to be more established than other newer boutique publishers like Ultra Rare Games or Hidden Gem Games.

It's looking like First Press Game's first 3 releases will be A Hole New World, Shadow Bug and Castle of Heart.

Just got an email from Dispatch Games. Psyvariar Delta has a confirmed for July 2nd release date. If you bought it from Dispatch directly ships 2 weeks before that. Also if you ordered directly from Dispatch, DLC will be included via a code. I personally never thought it would come out and I lost money haha

Needless to say, but those games are kinda meh. Understandable though; being a new publishing company, they probably didn’t have access to the more popular catalog of indie titles. A Hole New World and Shadow Bug, while interesting in concept, have both been done before. Castle of Heart just looks bad.

Overall metacritic for each game: A Hole New World - 70, Castle of Hearts - 53, Shadow Bug - 75.

Nothing award-winning, but certainly good games. Although there are several better options out there. Just take a quick glance at the games with a metacritic of 80+ but no physical release.

Into the Breach, Mini Metro, Night in the Woods, Neurovoider, Gorogoa, Wandersong, ABZU, etc.

It makes me wonder how many of these LRG and SRG already have locked in contractually.

@Magician Yes; I looked at the Metacritic scores before I typed my original comment. Good, not great. I don’t consider a 53 good though. I don’t think I’ll be spending money on these.

And yes, there are MANY better options out there.

Night in the Woods HAS to get a physical release eventually. Can’t believe it hasn’t yet.

oh another boutique publisher. I don't know weather to laugh or to cry. the first two titles look ok but nothing great. castle of hearts looks clumsy n crude (and I really love medieval settings) but that's a good thing cause well I already have a giant want list

Anyone notice that Deponia and Silence don’t have the font of Nintendo Switch games? Haven’t seen this since early games like just dance and super bomberman

The same goes for Constructor Plus and probably one or two other games I don't remember off the top of my head.

P.S. - ESP Ra.De. (pronounced as rah-day) is coming to Switch from M2 Shot Triggers. If this sells well chances are good we'll see other Cave games ported to the Switch. Battle Garegga, Dangun Feveron, Gwange, etc.

Which will possibly be their least popular Switch release to date. I'm all for nostalgia, but we're talking about a series of games from antiquated technology. It's a piece of history that I'll gladly support. However, I'm sure younger gamers will look at this and ask, "wth is this?"

Why youngsters, this is the grandfather of QTEs.

Similar to Night Trap I'd imagine as to a youngster's response.

Yeah; definitely not interested in Dragon’s Lair at all; just keeping the thread going. I respect its historical importance, though.

In other news, I received Old Man’s Journey today and I couldn’t be more disappointed. The packaging, outside of the front cover and spine, is entirely in French. Interior art, left side of which is just a French description. Right side is just an “Old Man’s Journey” logo. Back of box is entirely in French. No manual. I guess I was expecting it to at least have multi language on the packaging. This was pretty pricey too. It will probably be the first and last Red Art Games title I purchase.

Unless....Paraka, are you the one who has been making alternate Switch covers? Perhaps one could be made for Old Man’s Journey, but translated to English?

Update : Speaking with a representative of the business, French Law requires that their covers be in French. Just something for you all to be aware of, if you weren’t already.

Dragon's Lair, the grandfather of Quick-Time-Event games. Yeah, that's a point on description.
Mr. Game & Watch might have a say in this though. He's kinda QTEy as well.

@SKTTR Hmm. I don't regard Game and Watch as qte. I see it as traditional gameplay with literally one frame of animation lol. QTE for me is being rigidly told to press something directly in a certain amount of time. Yuck.
