Devolver Digital Asks Switch Owners: “What Games Do You Want?”
Devolver Digital takes to Twitter and asks Switch owners what games they'd like to see, knowing full well most players will answer Hotline Miami.
Publisher and development studio Devolver Digital, known for their quirky and often bloody titles, took to their official Twitter account today and asked Switch owners the kinds of titles they’d like to see from them on the system:
Hey, what Devolver Digital game do you want in Switch next?

The company also announced some brand new titles during their interesting E3 2019 conference. The first is Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, a game that has you competing with 99 other players in a chaotic race through an obstacle course that looks lifted straight from a Japanese game show.
Then there’s Carrion, a unique take on the classic horror genre. Instead of playing the human victim, you assume the role of an amorphous creature of unknown origin as you prey and consume those that imprisoned you to spread fear and panic throughout a facility. As you travel further through the game on your path to retribution, you gain mass and grow larger – presumably by absorbing other people.
Of course most players will respond to Devolver Digital with cult classic Hotline Miami, but that’s certainly an excellent choice as well.
This isn’t the company’s first foray into engaging Twitter promotion. Back in January, a customer managed to get a discount for Shadow Warrior 2 by simply asking for it. The full description from the article:
As seen in a tweet from Devolver Digital’s Twitter profile, a “potential future purchaser” wanted to play Shadow Warrior 2. So much so, he emailed the publisher asking if the publisher could put the game on sale. As any great company would, they made the moment right. “Sure thing, boss,” Devolver Digital replied, “You’ve got one hour.” There was a link provided so the buyer could easily make his purchase.
This was no mere discount either. Shadow Warrior 2 was 75% off its original price. As seen in the above, that brought it down to $10; that’s $29.99 down from its $39.99 price.
