Donut County Nintendo Switch Physical Version

 

Maybe it’s the impending apocalypse - or maybe it’s just because they’re so delicious - but there’s no denying that donuts are having a moment. So what better time to announce our tastiest Switch game yet? Follow the mischievous and adorable adventures of the residents of Donut County while they try to figure out exactly how they ended up underground. There’s donuts, there’s raccoons, and there’s even (probably unlicensed) drones — and now, they can all be in your Switch. If that ain’t sweet enough, we’ve included a Trashopedia Sticker Collection (Scratch-n-Sniff!).

Gorogoa Nintendo Switch Physical Version

 

Any true work of art has layers to its creation. Gorogoa is no different. The magic of this meticulously illustrated puzzle game is that the player has to construct and collage their own layers, and within those layers, lies a lifetime - a story of tremendously impressive detail and wrought with emotion. While it may seem like there are infinite possibilities, there is only one true resolution, and it takes a careful eye to find it. iam8bit is thrilled to team up with Annapurna Interactive and creator Jason Roberts for the physical release of this gorgeous journey... a treat for both the eyes and the mind.
