We have seen an influx of independently developed games to Nintendo’s hybrid console in 2018. And though the library of simulation games is improving, there still aren’t enough casual simulation games in the Switch.
In from Steam to Switch? I highlight a game weekly that would be a good one to port over. To play the casual simulation games whenever wherever you are. Of course, I have played none of them myself. The simple reason is that I don’t play games on my MacBook for the same reason I don’t play them on a home console. I want to play games on the go!
So I shall keep my fingers crossed and hope these seemingly gems make it to the Switch! This week I will feature Deiland!
Chibig studios is on a role
Spanish studio Chibig made Deiland, which is currently available on Steam. It has already jumped to one console, PS4 and is also on mobile. Instead of taking it to the Switch as well, Chibig is very busy bringing an entirely new game to Nintendo’s device: Summer in Mara. You can read a bit more about that game here.
Deiland would be a perfect one too: read on the see what the game is about.
An RPG with Sim elements
Deiland is a single-player adventure RPG with several sandbox elements, such as farming, crafting, and building.
Your planet is your home, turn it into a unique and special place. Improve your skills, craft tools, cook delicious food, brew potions, and create many more items that you can manage and trade.
Chibig feels a good game should have a good story. So with 12 available characters and over a 100 quests there will be enough adventures for you. Plus, nature changes around you with storms, hurricane winds, Aurora Borealis, meteor showers and shooting stars. Your little planet will attract lots of neighboring merchants wishing to trade materials and rare ingredients.
And the RPG part?
But it isn’t all peace and tranquility. A shadow wonders in the absolute darkness of the universe. The shadow speaks through dreams to evil creatures pressing them in to its service, with the sole objective of finding children and their planets and to rob them of their power of the Crystal and subdue them.
And of course it’s your job to put an end to that!
Oh well, if they fail to bring the game to Switch I can always download it on iOS. Free to download with in-app purchases!
