Awake little Georgina from her evil clown dream, weaved of her worst fears. Help the drunken pirate Jack Parrot to vanquish the horrible sea monster Kraken and save Father Lugosi from Count Dracula’s bloodthirsty fangs. But remember that even the smallest mistake is enough to smash you into pieces in this dark and challenging boss runner!

Rest in Pieces have been available for mobile devices since a couple of months and was awarded as one of the Top 10 best games at the Google Play Indie Games Showcase in June. The team has now rebuilt the game from the ground up to fit Nintendo Switch™ features, techniques and controls. It also contains extra features and more content.

Rest in Pieces was considered to be a game for Nintendo Switch from the beginning and we designed it with that in mind. But this is a new platform to us and that is why we decided to launch it for mobiles first, says Itatake’s Thomas Wedin.

The objective in Rest in Pieces is to swing fragile porcelain figurines through horrid nightmares without smashing into anything. It is a boss runner in a nightmare setting containing 18 different figurines and six bosses; The killer clown, Kraken, Medusa, Yeti, Count Dracula and Insectum. More nightmares, figurines and boosters will be available in coming updates.

‒ This is a game that really stands out of the crowd with its unique setup and amazing graphics, says Itatake’s Mattias Granat. Our devoted community constantly share new ideas to us for coming updates and new nightmares.

Rest in Pieces is available for download on the Nintendo eShop for $7.99.
