SMG Studio announced today that its co-op puzzler Death Squared will be launching on Nintendo Switch during Q2 2017. The game was originally released on PS4, Xbox One and PC and will feature all-new exclusive content with additional levels unseen in the previous releases.
If this is your first time hearing about Death Sqaured, here is a description of the game and its features:
Death Squared is a cooperative puzzle game for 1, 2 or 4 players, best enjoyed with loved ones who don’t mind a little arguing for the greater good.
Prove your teamwork skills in Death Squared as you solve puzzles together or die trying! Each player needs to guide a robot to a colour-coded goal, but the path is beset with deadly traps and hazards. Teams of players will need close observation and communication to keep each other alive and discover a solution together.
Complete the main campaign in single player or with two players, then take a group into four-player Party Mode for the ultimate teamwork trial! For those that can’t get enough, head to the ‘Vault’ to find extra experiments recommended only for the brave.
The original prototype originated at the 2015 48 hour Global Game Jam, themed “What do we do next?”
- The perfect puzzle gateway game for you to play with your “non-gamer” partner
- 1 or 2 Player ‘teamwork’ story mode with 80 challenging levels
- 2 or 4 player party/chaos/family mode with 40 insane levels
- 10+ hrs of puzzling co-op gameplay
- Includes 30 “Vault” 2 and 4 player levels for those who want an even bigger challenge. Deemed too hard for the main game with more coming post launch for FREE!
- best enjoyed in couch co-op with a friend or three sitting by your side, enabling you to cover each other’s back or simply just trash talk them when they die unnecessarily.
- Play by yourself in “Lonely Co-op” mode if you can’t find a co-op partner. It’s definitely a harder challenge, like patting your head and rubbing your belly at same time!
Death Squared is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC with a Nintendo Switch version of the game scheduled to release during Q2 2017.
