    Just finished this game. The Switch seems like a good console for it for sure.
    Good luck to these guys! And thanks, @Chary , for the report!

    The game is a bit short, but a must-play for anyone who hasn't yet IMO. Best use of (enhanced) 16-bit graphics I've ever seen.

    I wasn't a huge fan of this game but given it's popularity it'll probably sell well.

    This game is currently on my Steam wishlist. While the console releases probably won't affect me much, it's nice to see a game like this get some exposure.
