Sometimes it feels like games run out of character types and concepts, mimicking each other and throwing in small variations to try and stand out. Then there are games like CHUCHEL, in which you play as a hairy 'thing' with the quest of retrieving a precious cherry.
It was originally released back in 2018 on PC / Mac by Amanita Design; it's a studio with varied titles in its history, though Switch owners may know them best for Machinarium. You can expect similar puzzle gameplay in CHUCHEL, albeit with that wacky premise and some absurdist humour.
As for when we can expect the Switch version, it's expected in 2022 with RedDeer.games doing the porting and publishing. It'll be an interesting addition to the eShop, with plenty of positive critic and user reviews for the original release giving us some confidence.
Let us know if this is on your radar for next year's eShop release!
Amanita Design has also released Happy Game very recently, which is an amazing horror experience.
Well I'm sold on this one!
Looks very weird and special, just like me!! Definately keeping an eye for a physical. Looks like a Super Rare Games or Special Reserve release to me.
Also loved Machinarium, was hoping for a number 2 but so far...
haven't played this one but i'm sure it's better than their dreadfully boring new title, now bring botanicula to the switch already
@Meteoroid Well no...they changed it because they wanted to just as they could have easily decided not to. They didn't "have" to do anything.
Funny how the article calls this design wacky or original. Chuchel wouldn't stand out in an old Slavic cartoon! I liked his previous design better (it looked more like a sentient speck of dust), but I can see why they changed it.
This looks and sounds amazing!
