Yes, you definitely read that correctly. PQube and two-person indie developer slampunks have announced that Muddledash, an upcoming competitive party game featuring squiggly, squashy octopuses, will be racing its way onto Nintendo Switch this spring.

The game challenges players to race against one another, squabbling over the possession of a present along the way, until you eventually arrive at a nearby party. The octopus who manages to get to the party first - while holding the present, of course - wins!

Along the way you'll be flailing your tentacles all over the place, grabbing the present whenever possible and taking any opportunity to hit your friends in the face. All is fair in adorable octopus racing.
