It’s hip to be square.
New York-based independent studio, snowhydra games, has announced that its long-awaited quirky arcade shooter Zarvot, is debuting exclusively on Nintendo Switch on October 18th, 2018. For those who have may not of heard Zarvot. Zarvot is a whimsical game about cubes that sometimes love and sometimes hate each other. Featuring ultra responsive controls rendered at a silky smooth 60 FPS, the game tasks players with blitzing around as an uncannily anthropomorphic cube, capable of shooting, evading, double jumping and spinning into opponents with furious relish.
Snowhydra Games founder, Sam Eng, recently had this to say about the vision for the game and how much he can’t wait for players to get their hands on the game.
“With Zarvot, I wanted to make a game that captures both the joy and malice of competing with your friends; something that’s simultaneously light and breezy, but also chaotic and cathartic, Zarvot celebrates both ends of the spectrum, merging its pleasantly tactile aesthetic and sweet characters with savage arcade action. I can’t wait for players to check it out!”
If you are interested in checking out the game when it launches next week, it will be of course exclusively available on the Nintendo eShop for $19.99. At time of writing, pricing for other regions were unavailable.
