Platformer Shadow Bug, coming to Switch soon, is all about speedrunning

Already on Steam

The indie scene on Switch is flourishing. In a complete 180 from Nintendo’s previous generation I’m constantly seeing indie games released on just PC and Switch, or in some cases, Switch first.

I’m still not used to it! But with the rapid-fire indies from yesterday’s “Nindies Showcase” I might be ready for the onslaught now, which also includes Shadow Bug. Released last year on PC to a small but positive reception, Shadow Bug is a platformer with a speedrunning tint, built principally on locomotion.

It’s due out next week on Switch and you can check it out below.
