If you were on your computer last year, you might have brushed up against a baseball simulator that took the internet by storm. Blaseball, developed by the award-winning video game studio The Game Band, is an absurdist take on baseball that “encourages participants to bet (no real world money involved!) on the outcome.”
The game was a hit with players for its quirky rosters and teams, game mechanics, and match outcomes. Today, The Game Band announced that, along with publisher Snowman, they will release their award winning puzzle game Where Cards Fall for the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on November 4, 2021.
The game first launched on Apple Arcade last year to critical acclaim, earning the 2020 Apple Design Award. The captivating coming-of-age story is now making its way to PC and Nintendo Switch later this year, and the trailer highlights much of the creative genius The Game Band has been known for.
According to the their announcement, the puzzler will feature the following mechanics:
- Custom tailored controls and character animations for PC and Switch
- 50 challenging spatial puzzles that exercise your imagination and strategic thinking skills
- A unique art style inspired by contemporary artistic movements
- Tactile, accessible controls hand-crafted for every device
- Immersive audio and an original soundtrack. Headphones recommended!
The game also looks to feature a cyclical pattern of gameplay, one that thoughtfully disrupts the usual linear narrative of coming-of-age stories. Each scene presents unique opportunities to embrace the space of Where Cards Fall, a welcome facet of The Game Band development.
Keep your eyes open for Where Cards Fall, coming to Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on November 4, 2021.
