Eight Singapore based indie studies have announced plans to develop titles for the switch. The eight studios are Daylight Studios, Gattai Games, The Gentlebros, PD Design Studios, Rotten Mage, Springloaded, Tyler Projects, and Zengami.
These teams are pursuing game development with the switch after meeting with Nintendo at the DigiPen Game Conference that was held this past February.
Here are some quotes from the developers about the Nintendo Switch Indie Games:
“We feel our game’s mechanics and aesthetics would be perfect for the Switch and players would enjoy playing our game on a new console!” said Ivan Moltini, PR & Communications of Daylight Studios.
“We love couch multiplayer games, and the Switch’s unique blend of portability and local multiplayer support brings that mode of play to a larger audience than before,” Andre Pong, Design + Stuff Guy of Gattai Games said.
“The Switch comes with an amazing ability to be both a home console and a portable system. We feel Cat Quest would be right at home because of this,” said Desmond Wong, Chief Executive Bro of The Gentlebros
“The Nintendo Switch fits nicely into our game’s play mode. Dusty Raging Fist is a couch co-op game. Players can bring the game anywhere on the go and still enjoy playing together with the Switch’s separable joycon controllers. We believe this feature strongly reinforces our game’s fun factor,” said Ken Poh, Studio Director of PD Design Studios.
“Nintendo has been very supportive, and Switch suits our creative DNA perfectly. It’s a fantastic, amazingly versatile console that opens the door to creative new games. We think it will be a big success and are delighted to develop for a Nintendo console once again!” said Andrew Carter, Director of Zengami.
“The Switch shares the same design philosophy that we have: Enable users to play anywhere, anytime. With a powerful system, it also allows us to develop games with fancier graphics,” said Leonard Lin, Chief Executive Officer of Tyler Projects.
