So cute. So funny. And it seems to have the somewhat open-ended puzzle feel of a Scribblenauts or Trine. And who doesn't love that goofy couch co-op experience?
EDIT: Expected for "March" but not necessarily Launch, available on the eShop for $19.99. Who's in?
The faces are flat out hilarious. And so varied, too! They didn't pull punches with the charm in this game, looks like. Also I love the weird legs, and the animation on how they move. Not standard walk cycles, but creeping and wiggling and all kinds of goofiness. Makes you wonder what "mainstream" games could be like with this sort of creativity and reckless abandon! (I'm not saying they should all have goofy faces, more like if they weren't so worried about having to look "cool" or whatever. So many games seem to play it safe so they don't get laughed at. Meanwhile I've done nothing but laugh while enjoying watching people play Snipperclips, and that's why I want it so much!)
@J.K. Riki Overwatch isn't super-popular for nothing! Speaking of 'mainstream', Snipperclips was actually an indie game before Nintendo picked it up. They pulled a Valve! Great move. They should do much more of this type of thing (when the game suits their platform).
The internet, in general, seems to be shitting on the 'take it to a rooftop party!' concept, and Chris Kohler wrote some article about how the Switch was aimed squarely at the Nintendo faithful, but I think that games like 1-2-Switch and Snipperclips definitely have a chance to go viral, Wii Style. I hope Wii Sports evolves for the Switch, as well. It would be great fun to bring to a gathering, and it has become old enough to maybe even hit some nostalgia buttons.
If it's like me, maybe you saw a screenshot and foolishly wrote it off. If I have to walk around and smack all the people in the world like we used to be just to get them to look at this, it must be done!
Yes, I am slightly afraid of playing co op with my wife. She once threw a controller at my head. It was only once, during Smash Brothers, but still. A guy can't be too careful.
I'm going to have to practice a lot of patience, I think. Calmly explain that NO NOT LIKE THAT WHAT ARE YOU DOING I SAID CUT AT A 45 DEGREE ANGLE AND JUMP ON MY HEAD STOP STOP WHAT ARE YOU DOING STOOOOOOOOP I HATE THIS GAME!
In all seriousness though, I've always had trouble with communication thanks to Asperger's and other related things, so I feel like this could be a good tool for younger people to learn how to articulate and give coherent directions. I wish I had that when I was a kid.
