Get it before it's gone!
One of the standout releases of the early Switch library was that of Snake Pass, the 3D platformer starring a cute snake. It may not be to everyone’s tastes, but Snake Pass is certainly a unique experience, yet due to the massive influx of quality games to the eShop over the last few months, it’s likely been pushed down...
A reaction to fan demand
We do like our Switch logos to be nice, don't we? On the one hand it's understandable, as like all of our gaming systems it's a big part of our life - we want it to be as good as possible, and that includes the 'look' of our download collection on the HOME screen. A few developers have fallen foul of this, with iffy logos...
"I deleted the game! Excessive? Possibly, but it's so ugly!"
Snake Pass is a real gem in the early Switch library, it's a fresh experience that will keep you engaged until the very end. Solid visuals, unconventional gameplay, a memorable soundtrack and a decent amount of replay value make this well worth your time. The development team over at...
Sumo Digital has confirmed that its Switch title Snake Pass will go on sale from today June 27th until 4th July, with a 40 percent discount off the typical cost of the game. The occasion? The Summer Solstice, of course. To coincide with this news, the studio has released a trailer - which you can view above - that...
Sumo Digital's slithery physics platformer Snake Pass was a unexpected delight when we reviewed it back in March with solid visuals, unconventional gameplay, a memorable soundtrack and a decent amount of replay value. While Sumo quickly rolled out a patch after launch to improve the rumble effect in the game, the UK developer will...
"A piece of hiss-tory"
We recently noted how well Snake Pass was doing in the UK download charts for Switch, but it seems the slithery physics platformer has established full European dominance. In a recent press release from Sumo Digital we learned that Snake Pass has secured the number one spot in various versions of the European Nintendo Switch...
"We'd definitely love to keep working with Nintendo"
Yesterday Sumo Digital - the talented chaps behind Snake Pass, which launched recently on multiple consoles, including Switch - held an AMA session on Reddit which covered a wide range of topics. One of the first questions was regarding the possibility of a performance-boosting patch aimed at the...
"Originally I wanted to be somebody like Phil Collins"
The video game industry has been blessed with some incredible musical talents over the years, with ex-Rare composer David Wise being a standout; there's a strong chance you you will have heard his work. Having created acclaimed scores for games like Battletoads, Wizards & Warriors and Donkey...
Don't pass it up
Snake Pass is undoubtedly an original idea, but we weren't satisfied with just knowing it was different, we wanted to find out how it came to be. That's why in the video above we hooked up with the founder of Snake Pass' concept Seb Liese at EGX Rezzed to chat about how this whole idea came to be. What did you think of the unusual...
A real charmer
In recent times it seems that the 3D platformer has seen something of a resurgence, with games such as Yooka-Laylee leading the charge. Sumo Digital has now put out its own unique attempt at this genre, with a refreshing spin that makes it stand out from all the rest. Orienting an entire game around controlling a snake was certainly a...
It sssneaked out today
Earlier this week Sumo Digital confirmed that it had an update on the way to improve the rumble for Snake Pass on Nintendo Switch. It was described by one member of our team as resembling the over-the-top vibrations of The Wonderful 101 on the GamePad, so it was evidently pretty fierce. In any case an update slithered out...
We've been really enjoying our time with Snake Pass on the Switch eShop so far and our review should hopefully be with you very soon; our lovely male video hostess Alex has you covered in the meantime in the video above. One slight criticism which we have with the game, which you might have noticed if you downloaded it yesterday, is...
Slither and slide
Snake Pass hits the Nintendo Switch this week and we've already recorded some lovely direct-feed footage for you to gaze at longingly if you're still in two minds about making a purchase. However, if you'd like to see how the Switch version compares to the PS4 edition then you might want to check out this short comparison clip. As...
Less than a week to go
Later this week, Sumo Digital's latest game, Snake Pass, is due to arrive on the Nintendo Switch eShop. With a soundtrack composed by the renowned David Wise, this inventive new title will aim to mix collect-a-thon elements into a game wherein you control a snake as it slithers across levels. It seems like a pretty cool...
Complete with toe-tapping David Wise music, of course
Snake Pass arrives on the Nintendo Switch on March 28th (29th if you're in Europe), and Sumo Digital has released details on the fourth and final world in the game, the Air Realm. The short-but-sweet trailer shows off some of the title's unique gameplay as well as its lush environments. Add in...
"I'm a Nintendo-influenced fan boy at heart"
David Wise is something of a legend in the realm of video game music; plucked from the obscurity of Leicester's high street by the Stamper Brothers, he would become Rare's in-house composer for many years, almost single-handedly creating the aural accompaniment to the studio's NES, SNES and Game Boy...
