  • Tumbleseed’s developer, Greg Wohlwend, said the team is working on making the game easier and more enjoyable for gamers. Here’s what he had to say:

“We know how the current version of the game comes off when played in a review setting. Most likely you’ll play it, decide it’s too difficult, and be done with the game. We’re working on fixing that. So before we solicit more reviews, we’d like to try these ideas out first. Our changes probably won’t save the game, but we hope to give anyone that wanders into our game a fighting chance at enjoying it. TumbleSeed is the best thing I’ve worked on, which makes the tepid response all the more confusing.”

Will and I both liked the game, but neither one of us have touched it since.
– Nintendo confirmed a special edition Splatoon 2 Switch Pro Controller will be making it’s way to The States along side the game on July 21.
– Indivisible will be making it’s way to Switch and those who backed it have the ability to change their pledge if they want it on that console via Backerkit.
– NBA Playgrounds is, well, not very good. Even still, developer Saber Interactive is looking to at least try and make it more enjoyable with it’s latest big update for Switch. The next patch being worked on will cut the file size in half, increase the game’s resolution, and more. No mention on if it will make the game any fun though….
