Bad Habit Productions has announced Marble It Up! for Nintendo Switch, a spiritual successor to the Marble Madness and Marble Blast series.
In Marble It Up!, players are tasked with jumping, bouncing, boosting, and rolling their way through 40 levels of moving platforms, icy terrain, gravity-bending surfaces, and kinetic platforming puzzles. You can use power-ups to slow time, launch into the air, and glide to the finish line as quickly as possible, all in an effort to truly master your marble's physics.
The game features a replay system which lets you watch and race against the ghosts of your best efforts, as well as those of the world’s top players via online leaderboards. The game aims to offer a challenging experience that rewards skill and determination, with both docked and handheld modes running at 60 fps - and the use of the Switch's HD rumble - helping you to feel as immersed in the gameplay as possible.
Marble It Up!'s Technical Director, Ben Garney, has said the following:
“An intense love for the genre, for the subtle joy of rolling, led us to develop Marble It Up! It’s unique; it has a trancelike quality… you get into this flow and this focus that you don’t necessarily get in a lot of games. Of all the products I’ve worked on, this is the one of which I’m most proud. It has the most compelling gameplay, the best looking art, and everyone on the team building it are people I really respect.”
The game is set to launch on Switch this September, although no exact date or pricing has been revealed just yet.
