Gaming News Weekend 26

It’s that time again, time to look at this weeks gaming news. This week, we have news about Pokémon Café wallpaper, perspective puzzle game SUPERLIMINAL, Neo Noir thriller Night Call, Inkulinati Kickstarter successful, Lone Farm Steam Page is up and Snacko was funded successfully!

New Wallpaper in My Nintendo

Nintendo has added a new wallpaper to use your platinum points on in you American My Nintendo account. It’s an image of the new Pokémon Café, that you can get for 50 points. You can redeem it until October 1, find it here.

Perspective puzzle game, SUPERLIMINAL

Several writers in our team love a good puzzle game. It will be interesting to see what they make of Superliminal.a single-player first-person puzzle game that uses perception as a mechanic.

You play as someone who wakes up in a surprisingly lucid dream. You have fallen asleep with the TV on at 3AM, remembering that you caught a glimpse of the commercial from Dr.Pierce’s Somnasculpt dream therapy program. By the time you open your eyes, you’re already dreaming – beginning the first stages of this experimental program. As you complete puzzles to get to the next exit, certain patterns and truths become more apparent. In this game, everything is exactly what it seems to be! Wait, no… that’s not right. Everything is the opposite of what you think it is? That’s not correct either. This is a game about breaking expectations and thinking outside the box. What you see is what you get. Literally.

Looks very interesting!

Neo Noir thriller Night Call

Ash has mentioned the game before when she was looking at what’s in store on the Switch from publisher Raw Fury. Made by developers Monkey Moon and BlackMuffin they have brought this investigation game to consoles this week. And of course, Ash is checking it out for our review!

Night Call puts you behind the wheel of a Parisian taxi cab on the late shift, where a mysterious serial killer is stalking the streets. As a survivor of the killer’s most recent attack, you have seven nights to unravel the mystery of your experience by interacting with over 90 potential, story-driven characters.

Night Call’s strength truly lies in the friends you made along the way – Use your limited time each day to interact with dozens of passengers, learn about their lives, and gather clues. Can you identify the culprit and solve the case before the meter runs out?

Inkulinati Kickstarter successful

A while back we mentioned Kickstarter campaign Inkulinati. Inkulinati will be a turn-based strategy with medieval animals, where you have to become a master of the Living Ink and lead your illustrated animal army on the pages of medieval books.

Good news: the game has raised its Nintendo Switch Kickstarter stretch goal, confirming that it is coming to the latest Nintendo console, along with an additional playable unit – the Dragon! You can find more info on the game here.  

Lone Farm Steam Page is up

I know, not a Switch game, but one that’s coming to Steam for now. But as I love a good simulation game, I can’t help but be pleased that Lone Farm is making progress.

With a planned release date of December 2020, you can wishlist the game on Steam now!

Here’s the new gameplay trailer, that’s already nicely detailed!

Snacko was funded successfully!

Another Kickstarter that was funded very successfully is Snacko: a Farming Cat Adventure. The $ 30,000 goal was more then reached, as $ 45,700 was pledged. For now, the game will be coming to Steam, but maybe in future it will land on Switch as well.



  1. Another excellent week of gaming news. I’m particularly looking forward to Ash’s review of Night Call.

    I’m totally on board for Inkulinati. That looks amazing.

      1. I had forgotten about Night Call – looking forward to Ash’s review of it!

        I know you like simulation games – do you, or any of your writers, plan on reviewing “Truck and Logistics Simulator”? That’s another one that’s on my radar…something to play other than New Horizons!
