The Nintendo Switch started off with a fairly small assortment of games with the firm promising to fill out the lineup over the course of the year with no less than 60 indie titles. It appears that this week, Nintendo has started its push, adding four new indie games to its eShop.
While it would have been nice to see some completely original titles, all of the “new” releases are games that have been seen previously on other consoles in some form over the past few years. Luckily, it looks like they won’t cost all that much, with a majority being priced at $9.99 USD.
If interested, you can check out a description of each game below, along with a trailer of the title. Some of the trailers are from other versions of the game, but the basics will be identical. This was done because the Switch game trailers were not available or did not offer any meaningful glimpses of gameplay.
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ ($39.99) – The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a dungeon-crawling shoot-’em-up that’s a different game each and every time you play it. The randomly generated maps are built with more than 11,000 unique room configurations, each populated with a nearly endless variety of enemies, items, challenges and secrets.
Human Resource Machine ($9.99) – Human Resource Machine is a puzzle game for nerds. In each level, your boss gives you a job. Automate it by programming your little office worker. If you succeed, you’ll be promoted up to the next level for another year of work in the vast office building.
Little Inferno ($9.99) – Multiple nominee in the Independent Games Festival for the Grand Prize, Nuovo Award, and Technical Excellence, with honorable mentions in Best Design and Best Audio. Little Inferno is an adventure game that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace – about looking up up up out of the chimney, and the cold world just on the other side of the wall.
World of Goo ($9.99) – World of Goo is a physics-based puzzle/construction game. The millions of Goo Balls who live in the beautiful World of Goo don’t know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.
If you are located in the US, you can now navigate to the eShop on your Switch to find these games. If you are outside the US, there is still a chance that these titles will be available, but there’s no guarantee.
