Physical game collectors, get those wallets ready. Iam8bit is about to release two new hard copies that you'll want to pounce on.
Donut County and Gorogoa are getting special Nintendo Switch physical versions, and you'll have to hurry if you want to get them this week! Both are excellent puzzle-centric adventures that will shape and warp your way of thinking in the most delightfully twisted way. Don't believe me? I've played both, and look at me!
Previously, Shacknews spoke with creator Ben Esposito about Donut County, which is a colorful and hilarious game in the vein of Katamari Damacy that
Gorogoa is an equally imaginative and colorful experience that, while not int the same neighborhood as Donut County, it's well worth playing through at least once. Larryn Bell spent some time with it, and came away quite pleased.
"Gorogoa” is an original, imaginative treat that is as much an aesthetic masterpiece as it is a puzzle game. Don’t bother watching let’s plays or walkthroughs. If you can help it, try to avoid guides, too. The refreshing sense of discovery that “Gorogoa” has to offer is worth the extra cognitive effort it takes to complete each puzzle."
Each game will be limited to 5,000 copies and will be region-free, but you'd better hurry if you want to get one. If you've ever tried to purchase one of these bad boys before, you know how quickly iam8bit sells out of limited run games. They'll be going for $34.99 apiece, so make sure to set some cash aside before the big day on Thursday, August 15 at 10 AM PT.
