SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Divination’, ‘Behind Closed Doors: A Developer’s Tale’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for May 18th, 2022. In today’s article, we’ve got a few new releases to look at along with the latest sales and expiring discounts. As far as news goes, Pokemon Home has been updated and should now work with the recent few Pokemon game releases. Better late than never, I suppose. Aside from that, it’s a bit of a quiet day. Well, the next couple of days should make up for that with interest. Let’s get to work!

New Releases

Behind Closed Doors: A Developer’s Tale ($4.99)

SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Divination’, ‘Behind Closed Doors: A Developer’s Tale’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and Sales

This is an indie game by an indie developer about an indie developer who is transported into another world where he has to conquer challenges that resemble indie games. Platformers and top-down shooters, mainly. But before that, you’ll be living that indie dev life. Waking up late, brushing your teeth, grabbing a bite to eat, doing some coding, replying to emails from customers. The usual stuff. This game feels like it is aimed at a very specific niche, and I’m not sure that I am in it.

Divination ($4.99)

SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Divination’, ‘Behind Closed Doors: A Developer’s Tale’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and Sales

You are a fortune teller in a gritty cyberpunk world. That’s the size of it. People come and talk to you about their problems, pull some runes, and you have to interpret them as you see fit. Their future depends on how you choose to read it, and you’ll have to live with the results. Sometimes the answer to their problems is clear, but most of the time it isn’t. The future may not be written, but your customers are going to take your advice very seriously. Think carefully before you read those runes.

Regular Factory: Escape Room ($9.99)

SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Divination’, ‘Behind Closed Doors: A Developer’s Tale’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and Sales

Another escape room game, this time set in a factory. A totally regular factory. Yessir, nothing unusual here. Explore the rooms, gather the items, solve the puzzles, and see if you can figure out all the secrets of this mundane setting. There couldn’t possibly be anything truly amiss. After all, titles don’t lie.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

That’s a list of sales, alright. Nothing particularly unusual, but not exactly a list of the usual suspects either. The outbox is a bit more ordinary in most respects, with plenty of good games in it that you have had countless opportunities to pick up at reasonable rates in the past. Will today be the day that changes your heart? Check those lists, dear reader, if you have the courage and finances to do so.
