Independent games developer Threye Interactive today announced
Switch, a brand new touching puzzle platformer, to be released
on Steam for PC on March 7th and on Microsoft Xbox One later
this Spring, where players embody the letter ‘i’, on an
adventure to redeem lost friendship. Featuring over 70
challenging levels that span across five visually soothing
worlds, Switch is a 2D puzzle platforming game with a
heartwarming narrative, that mixes classic platform mechanics
with a nimble ‘switching’ twist. Leisurely paced, challenging,
and addictively fun, Switch will keep players’ palms sweaty and
“In times when people immerse themselves in social media rather than nurturing real relationships, it’s inevitable every now and then to feel lonely and out of touch. With this in mind, we wanted to create a narrative led platformer, that modern players could emotionally connect to. We finally concluded - is it not me, myself and I that every person best identifies with?”, said Bharat Nag from Threye Interactive. “The core game mechanic of switching between a small ‘i’ and a capital “I” perfectly illustrates how the self-centered character abandoned by his friends transforms into a loving and all encompassing version of himself”.
In Switch players “switch” across traps and obstacles, speedrun through gruelling situations, and test their reflexes with unique environmental interactions. Following known 2D platforming mechanics such as jumping, wall jumping and shooting, Switch introduces a unique ‘switching’ mechanic which not only affects the platforms in several ways but also grants a double jump, which leads to situations demanding interesting choices to be made within split seconds. The game employs a beautiful, minimalist 2D art style which is further enriched by a soundtrack that emboldens a sense of excitement and fun throughout the game’s challenging levels.
