Switchaboo Pick of the Week

It’s an interesting week for releases. A few ultimate editions and a few indie gems scattered in here and there. So we considered all of this and decided that our Pick of the Week is…

 

Drum roll, please…

 

Garage!

Garage

Whilst Garage might fly under radar for a lot of people, the fact that it is a Switch exclusive immediately catches the eye.

With a unique twist on the zombie genre in that it is set in the 80s and is a parody of the era’s B-grade horror films, Garage seems like a sure pick for any fan of the genre.

 

So, do you agree with our Pick of the Week? Let us know in the comments below.

And like always, please consider liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter @switchaboonews. Also, why not check out last week’s releases in case you missed them?
