Sludge Life, a wild graffiti adventure, comes to Nintendo Switch on June 2

The PC version will also be playable on Steam soon

I haven’t forgotten about Sludge Life, a wonderfully weird graffiti platformer-adventure game from Terri Vellmann, Doseone, and Devolver Digital, but I had forgotten that it was coming to Nintendo Switch. The day’s almost here, too — the Switch version and Steam release are both planned for June 2, 2021.

Over the past year, Sludge Life has been available for free on the Epic Games Store. That’s where I messed around with it originally, and the free-to-claim-and-keep deal is still valid until May 28 if you’re only hearing about this now. (Normally, the game will cost $14.99, so do what you gotta do.)

If you’re someone who can tolerate a bit of the old crude humor and you enjoy exploring lo-fi 3D spaces, especially when just-out-of-reach collectibles are involved, then you’re gonna have fun figuring out what’s what. There’s little to no hand-holding, so poking around the world, chatting with the locals, and figuring out how to get up to that one spot up there that’s taunting you is a big part of the experience.

What else do you need to know? There’s a glider. That should just about do it.
