Earlier this year we told you about a Kickstarter campaign for Caveman Warriors, which included stretch goals for Nintendo hardware. Developer JanduSoft has now managed to confirm the game for Nintendo Switch, benefitting from the company's official YouTube channel promoting the game.
It's shaping up to be a rather entertaining action platformer, with some varied ideas at play and support for co-op. There'll apparently be single Joy-Con controls available to allow up to four player to jump in at once.
This adapted control scheme to a single joycon feels as natural as it was in the NES era. Most of us, if not all, are Nintendo die hard fans and being able to release Caveman Warriors here is a dream come true.
The press release says we can expect this one 'soon', but no date has been given yet.
So, is this yet another title for the Switch eShop wishlist?
Why can't I hold all these indies?!
Hrmm want to see more of this one like the idea of co op but not sold on the gameplay yet
@RyanSilberman Yeah I agree!
Wow. I live in the United States and I can't believe that Nintendo life is still adding news stories this late, there is just so many new items coming to the switch
@Danrenfroe2016 Their staff is made up entirely of robots that don't require sleep. They have some sort of super realistic skin they slap over the "Alex" model everyday before he makes a video to keep us all fooled.
This looks way good. Another backlog. I even haven't started Metroid yet.
@JHDK, and it's ultimate goal is to "kill all lovely people". Also their common "we" in all articles points to a single robomind. Beware!
@RyanSilberman Because most indies companies don't have the money to support physical releases.
Dang, from the video thumbnail I thought it was a game in a top down perspective with an artstyle of Stardew Valley mixed with Animaniacs and a Hunter and Gatherer type of gameplay where the survival of the tribe needs to be secured from day to day. And they'd slowly evolve into tool-wielding early humans and such. But oh no, it's the one billionth platformer. Really wishing for some variety in those Nindie releases. That's not to say it'd look bad (it looks alright) but I'm rather disappointed.
I'm gonna have to be more selective with my indies. Too many coming out so I'm going to have to narrow it down to the best of the best (which is how the market is supposed to work)
48 seconds in: is that Nazi He-Man?
The graphics look very polished.
Looks like mobile flash garbage.
@RyanSilberman because of switch tax on cartridges
I was literally just about to pick this up on X1, my daughter loves prehistory and co-op side scrollers. Guess I'll wait
Hahaha, trailer is class.
yet another indie to download. I laugh at the people saying the Switch has no games. This console is awesome.
Looks like a prehistoric twist on NSMBU...hoping the kids and i have a blast with this one too.
Looks really fun
@JHDK this does make sense is Alex at the beginning of each one of his videos has the exact same saying and exact same voice with the same inflection, I think you're right that he is a robot.
Looks Joe and Mac-inspired. Note that one of the arcade releases of Joe and Mac was called “Caveman Ninja.” Great idea however the graphics look very cheap to me. You have completely solid color backdrops and segmented vector characters looking like NewGrounds. Not sure about this one
