RALEIGH, NC—November 19, 2019—Widget Satchel, the ferret mischief game from developer Noble Robot, is finally coming to Steam and Nintendo Switch on November 27th.
Widget Satchel is a “Metroidvania-lite” where you play as a mischievous ferret on a space station. Sprocket is the name, and mildly inconveniencing humans is the game. With puzzles, platforming, collectibles, and gameplay that's easy to pick up and play-but difficult to master-players will be able to replay Widget Satchel for years to come.
Widget Satchel was created with nostalgia in mind by Noble Robot director Mark LaCroix, who said, "As a kid who played a lot of NES games, something that surprised me when I returned to them years later is that I didn't actually beat most of them. As a result, I felt robbed of my nostalgia for those games. I have no childhood memory of huge portions of Ninja Gaiden, City Connection, and most frustratingly, Gauntlet, each of which I considered among my favorite games growing up. I want a kid playing Widget Satchel today, upon returning years later in order to uncover the last of its remaining secrets, to have a fond and complete memory of the game."
Widget Satchel will be available for Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and Linux on November 27th for $11.99 (a 20% discount is live from now until December 6th).
