Press release:

Try our Nintendo Switch games at GamesCom in the Italian Pavilion, Hall 4.01  booth B014 A013 !

Torino, Italy - 17/8/2017 - MixedBag is proud to announce that the action adventure forma.8 will launch on Nintendo Switch next week.

forma.8 is a unique take on the proven Metroidvania action-adventure formula, with a striking visual style and a huge world to explore.

As the small exploration probe forma.8 you're stranded alone on the surface of an alien planet. Separated from your companions by accident you have a life or death mission to accomplish: find and recover a lost, powerful energy source before it's too late. Ancient civilisations, great perils and dystopian visions await you. And not everything is what it seems...

forma.8 will be available on the latest Nintendo console on August 24th, at an all new price point: only 9.99$ / 9.99€ / 8.99£!

The game runs at super smooth 60fps, upping the resolution to 1080p when the console is docked, with full support for the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.

But that’s not all! MixedBag is publishing two more games on Nintendo Switch this year: Wheels of Aurelia from Santa Ragione and ATOMINE from Broken Arms Games.

Wheels of Aurelia

Platform: Nintendo Switch

Developer: Santa Ragione

Publisher: MixedBag

Launch date: October 2017

Price: TBA

We’re proud to port and publish Santa Ragione’s unconventional driving-narrative game Wheels of Aurelia on Nintendo Switch. The game will be playable at our booth at GamesCom and will launch in October 2017.

A narrative road trip game set in the roaring Italian 70s, it tells the story of Lella, a restless woman driving on the roads of the western coast of Italy, the famous “Via Aurelia”.

This is an interactive fiction game in the shape of an isometric racer and with a focus on replayability: every playthrough lasts about fifteen minutes and there are sixteen different endings to discover.

ATOMINE

Platform: Nintendo Switch, other console platforms

Developer: Broken Arms Games ( http://www.brokenarmsgames.com )

Publisher: MixedBag

Launch date: TBA 2017

Price: TBA

MixedBag is working with Broken Arms Games to bring their unique roguelite to Nintendo Switch and other console platforms this Autumn! The game will launch by the end of the year on Nintendo Switch and other unannounced platforms.

ATOMINE is a twin stick procedural shooter rogue-lite set in a virtual world with minimalist design, where the player recounts on the screen the real events of STUXNET, the first weapon ever created in the form of computer virus.

In every run the player has to clear the level area from all the enemies in order to unlock the portal to the next level. During the run every killed enemy will leave on the ground XPs, energy and/or weapon modules.

forma.8 and Wheels of Aurelia for Nintendo Switch will be fully playable at GamesCom at our booth in the italian pavilion: hall 04.1 booth B014 A013.
