Ghost Time Games has revealed that Jettomero: Hero of the Universe is headed to the Nintendo Switch next month, with a release date of 4th October nicely secured.
The game has you playing as Jettomero, a giant, indestructible, and adorably clumsy robot who's only hope is to save the human race. Players must explore a procedurally generated universe by flying through space and landing on planets, all while trying not to accidentally destroy every single little thing in your path. Despite the protagonist's accidental chaos, the game has a rather relaxing vibe to it and describes itself as a "charming experience for players of all backgrounds".
Gabriel Koenig - the one-man developer behind the game - has been in touch to tell us a little more about the project. Jettromero was initially released around a year ago on PC and Xbox, before eventually making its way to PS4, too. Naturally, it's been on quite the journey over this time period, and we're happy to see it arrive on Switch.
"Jettomero has had a good though relatively quiet year. Audiences have been small though passionate - the game has certainly struck a chord with many players. While sometimes criticized for its simplicity, Jettomero has received almost universal praise for its unique visual style and charming protagonist.
It's a human story, about a giant robot trying to save the universe, but only making things worse every step of the way. Designed for audiences of all ages, the narrative balances comedy with existential angst."
It has received positive users reviews on Steam, while really dividing opinion among critics, generating both high and low scores in reviews. You'll likely already have an inkling as to whether or not you're sold on the game's concept and design, but make sure to let us know your thoughts on this one in the comments below.
