RedDeer.Games has been the development studio behind a whole host of titles on Switch from League of Enthusiastic Losers to Little Bug, but their latest puzzler, Reky, looks to be their simplest game yet (well, discounting AAA Clock and all associated titles, that is). The studio has announced that the game will be coming to the Switch eShop on October 14th - but a few short days away.
Getting from point A to B may not initially appear to be the most enticing of concepts, though Reky has this challenge as its central, and only, mission. Check out the above trailer and you're sure to get an idea of what we mean.
The game looks to be a harmless little puzzler, with a lo-fi soundtrack to make this the kind of title you can take a minute to chill out to. Looking at the gameplay, there's no pretending that this is going to be one for you to play for hours on end while you should be sleeping, but passing the time on a train or waiting for the dinner to cook is sure to appeal to the mobile app fans out there.
What might not be quite so appealing is the game's price point. Currently only listed on the Canadian eShop for $13.56 (around £9 / 10€) this comes off as a pretty expensive way to just pass the time. This being said, it does look mega soothing and RedDeer has run some pretty good sales in the past so who's to say this won't be discounted in the future.
For more information on the title, check out the following from RedDeer.Games:
This puzzle game is an eye catching combination of minimalism and elegant design. The controls may seem simple to understand, but reaching the final floor will not be an easy task.
Simplicity is key
Although the rules may be easy to understand, most challenges are anything but simple. Remember the rules of this world, and you should have no problem with coming out on top.
The gameplay of reky is further elevated by the calming ambient soundtrack. Let it help you sink into this unique aesthetic experience.
