Hello Neighbor headlines six TinyBuild games on the way for Nintendo Switch

Indie publisher has five others coming, too

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Dynamic Pixels and TinyBuild’s Hello Neighbor is coming to the Nintendo Switch by the end of the year, along with five other games that showcase the publisher’s indie games catalog on a new console.

Five of the six games are $14.99, with Hello Neighbor at $39.99. The survival horror game which launched on Windows PC and Xbox One at the end of last year will be out for Switch sometime around the end of the year. Its price will all future content updates.

The others:

The Final Station (sometime this month). A story-driven side-scroller from Do My Best Games, with a big focus on piecing together what happened to a post-apocalyptic landscape, the $14.99 MSRP includes a post-release DLC module. The Final Station launched on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in 2016.

Clustertruck, from Landfall Games, also launched on PS4, Windows and Xbox One in fall 2016, and has the most rambunctious premise for sure. Pegged for March, the $14.99 game is “a chaotic physics truckformer where you play a game of ‘the floor is lava’ while jumping on trucks driven by terrible drivers.” Well alllllrighty then.

Punch Club by Lazy Bear Games. It joined PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo 3DS last winter after a 2016 launch on PC. What looks like a throwback-styled fighter, Punch Club sets the player in search of who murdered their father in a “choose-your-own adventure boxing management tycoon.” That also has a DLC package called “The Dark Fist” rolled into its price

Party Hard. By Pinokl Games, it’s one of the older titles, launching in 2015 on PC and 2016 on PS4 and Xbox One. It’s a strategy stealth game where the premise is to shut down an obnoxious neighbor’s disruptive party at 3 in the morning, by any means necessary. “Think Hitman, but your goal is to eliminate everyone.” As a longtime renter of some craphole digs next to inconsiderate neighbors, this is right in my wheelhouse.

Streets of Rogue, by Matt Dabrowski, launched on Steam last March and carries, naturally, the the roguelike tag along with a bathtub of other descriptors. Well, just watch the trailer. It is coming “later this year,” also for Xbox One.

This video has a lot longer discussion of what the games are about and have to offer.
