PR - Free Demo, Killer Sale Available Today For Quirky Action Platformer KUNAI

The dual-kunai wielding-tablet, Tabby, is here to wreak devastation on unsuspecting AI enemies

PARIS - (April 6, 2020) - Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer TurtleBlaze announced today that the adorable but deadly KUNAI is now unleashing damage on your PC via a free demo on Steam, with an eShop demo to follow shortly. Additionally, KUNAI is currently 30 percent off on Steam and the eShop, with each platform’s deal ending on April 12 and April 19 respectively.

Launched earlier this year, the adorable but deadly KUNAI received positive reviews from international press for its engaging gameplay and unique art style when it launched on PC and Switch. Fans can now get a free look at the various weaponry and moves that will be at their disposal as they slice and stab their way through a hellish but aesthetically pleasing warscape.

An adventure best explored through ninja-tier parkour and best survived with razor sharp combat reflexes, KUNAI is a warrior’s delight, where right off the bat players have ample opportunities to reduce enemies to scrap metal while swinging on ropes across chasms, dashing up walls to lofty goals, and dropping in on unsuspecting targets.

In KUNAI, players dish out swift death as Tabby, an emotive, tablet-powered hero infused with an ancient warrior's soul. Tabby is resuscitated and rebooted in the midst of a futuristic war between AI robots gone wrong. Humanity is on the brink of extinction thanks to a famed inventor’s botched AI creation, and Tabby sets out to solve things as any handheld consumer electronic warrior hybrid would: with heaps of violence.

With vertical and horizontal level design aimed at keeping you on your toes, navigating the fast-paced world in KUNAI is engaging, challenging and immensely rewarding. Slicing baddies and soaring through KUNAI’s sprawling world with Tabby is a joyous escape, and toppling the land’s merciless bosses in all-out showdowns is immensely satisfying.

To keep tabs on KUNAI, slash your way over to the  official website (https://kunaigame.com/), ambush The Arcade Crew on Twitter (https://twitter.com/TheArcadeCrew.)

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Official Companion Guide delayed to mid-April in EU, possibly early May in NA/AUS

A bit of patience needed

Future Press has run into a few bumps with getting Animal Crossing: New Horizons Official Companion Guide out the door. As you might suspect, the issues stem from the coronavirus impacting production and shipping around the world. Future Press has put out an update explaining to customers when they might expect the book to arrive. Check out the full message below.

We hope you’re all well and safe! Since its release a week ago, it’s been great to see Animal Crossing: New Horizons providing some comfort to many who are stuck at home. These are difficult times, and we know that game guides won’t help much with getting through them, but we’d like to give you an update on our situation.

The circumstances have caused some delays, but our Animal Crossing: New Horizons guide has now been printed. The last stages of production were nail-biting—in the end we’ve been lucky, because all of our production partners were fantastic and carried out their roles perfectly, despite everything. The only thing left now is shipping from our printer to retailers around the world. The book will be available in English, French, German and Spanish languages across Europe from mid April. Fans in North America and Australia will have to wait a little longer, since shipping via air isn’t an option right now. We’re sorry to say that you’ll have to wait until end of April or even early May before the book arrives in stock. The situation with shipping remains fluid, though, so we can only ask for your patience and will update you when we know more.

As you’ve probably heard, Amazon is prioritising essential goods for the time being, which means that they’ve stopped ordering other products, such as books. This means that Amazon will not even get enough stock to fulfil all of their existing pre-orders. As soon as Amazon is ready to take them, we’ll ship more books to them, but please understand that this could take another while.

We think the book turned out great and we certainly hope that once you hold it in your hands you’ll consider it worth the wait. Working with Nintendo was a real honor, and we’d like to thank them again for making the development of this book go as smoothly as any project we’ve had, despite taking place under some truly unprecedented circumstances.

Spring into Spring 2020 with Pokémon GO

Spring has sprung in Pokemon GO

Spring has sprung for those of you in the northern hemisphere, and what better way to celebrate than with a springtime event! Buneary joins the celebration by wearing a flower crown, while egg- and spring-themed Pokémon are appearing more often in the wild! Pokémon Eggs just got eggs-tra special too, as Pichu and Togepi with flower crowns will be hatching from them.

We're continuing to prioritize Pokémon GO experiences that can be enjoyed in individual settings. You’ll receive 1/2 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators until further notice, so be sure to turn on Adventure Sync and make every step count.

Date + Time

From Thursday, April 9, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. to Thursday, April 16, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. local time


The following Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild: Exeggcute, Chansey, Mareep, Marill, and Torchic. If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Exeggcute!

A Togepi-themed bag and hoodie will be available in the in-game shop!

2× Hatch Candy
Lucky Eggs will last for one hour

And remember that as mentioned above, a 1/2 Hatch Distance bonus is ongoing until further notice—which means it will be applied during this event! Just make sure to place your Eggs into Incubators while the bonus is running.

Captivating Underwater Experience, In Other Waters, Available Now On Switch

Come on in, the water's fine

Fellow Traveller and Jump Over the Age are delighted to announce that In Other Waters, the game of discovering new life in an alien ocean, is now available for PC and Nintendo Switch. In Other Waters costs $14.99 USD, but to celebrate the launch, there is a 10% discount on orders that runs now through launch week until April 10.

In Other Waters is a unique narrative adventure that puts players in the role of an AI assistant revealing the mysteries of the turquoise depths of an alien ocean. Xenobiologist Ellery Vas is searching for her missing partner on the planet Gliese 677Cc. Equipped with a malfunctioning dive suit possessed by a strange AI unit, Ellery discovers extraterrestrial life and an ocean full of secrets.

In Other Waters, the 2019 IndieCade Europe Jury Prix award winner, is sci-fi without soldiers and violence focusing instead on wonder and exploration, fear and vulnerability, and the relationship between a long-dormant AI and its human pilot. The relationship between the AI and the operator unfolds over an impactful narrative uniquely interpreted by the player. The depths of Gliese 677Cc contain many secrets. For life to continue, it must change. What will you discover as you track, sample and learn about life inside this alien ocean?

Developed by Gareth Damian Martin, the one-man team behind Jump Over The Age. An accomplished games journalist whose work can be found at Eurogamer, Kotaku, US Gamer, and more, Gareth is also an artist, game designer, and writer.


Explore an Alien Ocean: Freely dive into an expansive section of seafloor, from shimmering reefs to inky depths. Unlock upgrades and make discoveries that allow you to open up new paths, uncovering strange creatures and environments as you do.

See the World Through an AI Lens: Navigate an elegant, intuitive UI via touch or mouse controls. Interpret signals, set headings, and map the ocean through experimentation and intuition.

Become a Xenobiologist: Discover and catalogue species through observation, scanning, taking samples, and interacting with alien life. Read Ellery’s notes, look at her sketches, and help her classify an entirely new ecosystem.

Plan Your Dives: Choose whether to study creatures, investigate secrets or dive new areas, then come back to your base to study samples in the lab, chat to Ellery or read her journals to understand more about this world.

Build a Lasting Relationship: Through limited communication learn more about the person whose suit you inhabit, and help guide her towards a terrible truth. What you experience together will bring you closer.
