Forget the usual heroes – in this unique tactical adventure you get to play as the monsters! Available to download from the eShop early next month 

18 April 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati and one-man developer Nerdook (Monster Slayers, Vertical Drop Heroes) are delighted to announce that turn-based strategy RPG Reverse Crawl is coming soon to Nintendo Switch™ – the game will be available to download from the eShop from 10 May.

Reverse Crawl inverts the classic dungeon crawling premise, putting players in the claws and armored boots of monsters, undead, and other fantasy enemies in a quest to defeat heroic warriors and their Red Queen. Since its release on PC, Reverse Crawl has earned praise for simple yet nuanced strategy mechanics and unique premise:

HonestGamers"There’s a real depth of choice that encourages multiple replays, especially when some of these decisions start affecting the game’s ending. But there’s also a tactical depth that I’m not sure I expected"

IndieGamesPlus: "Reverse Crawl is lighthearted and accessible enough to be appealing to folks who aren’t necessarily into tactical RPGs... a refreshing take on the genre"

IndieGameReviewer: "...for what it is – a light tactics game that’s easy to pick up and heavy on the charm – Reverse Crawl excels"

About the gameYou’re dead already! But such a trifling inconvenience isn’t going to stop you – the Revenant King – from reclaiming your throne. Reverse Crawl is a fast-paced turn-based strategy RPG that lets you lead mobs of monster minions and back-from-the-grave goons into battle against the elite armies of the dastardly Red Queen.

Includes a brand new local PvP mode, created exclusively for the Nintendo Switch version.
