Canadian developers Spooky Squid announced today via Twitter that They Bleed Pixels is Switch-bound.
The original release was as an Xbox Live Indie Game, which we covered back in 2011, calling it “a mash-up of Super Meat Boy’s hazards, Limbo’s darkness, and the classic beat em ups of the 90s”. We enjoyed the one-button oriented combat then and found the platforming a “brutal challenge awaits anyone looking to peel back its several hidden layers” that requires “a sense of rhythm and flow to overcome its most interesting challenges”.
Spooky Squid also confirmed that their 2018 release, Russian Subway Dogs, will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, and, somewhat surprisingly, PS Vita.
Neither game has an official release date though the developer is offering a newsletter sign-up for anyone wanting to know the minute they drop on their respective platforms.
