Switchaboo Pick of the Week

With an impressive 17 games coming out this week, we had a lot to consider. But we did our due diligence and have decided that our Pick of the week is…

Drum roll, please…

Poisoft Thud Card!

 

… just kidding.

 

 

It’s…

Mulaka!

Ever since this game was shown off on Nintendo’s Summer 2017 Nindies Showcase, we have had our eyes firmly on this game. The art style is colourful and vibrant, the world looks open and packed full of things to do, and the game appears to be inspired by Mexico’s rich cultural history. It sort of gives out a Breath of the Wild vibe, or maybe that’s just me…

With such a fantastic game being under $30, why wouldn’t you consider it?
