Membrane is available on Switch for just 9 cents


Dollar deals have been big on Switch lately. Developers drop their game to a ridiculously low price, watch people swarm in, and ride the wave to the top of the eShop charts. Lose some cash initially, gain some exposure, and hopefully make more money in the long-run than you would if you left the game at its original price. Definitely a strategy that works, and now there's another dev giving it a shot.

Membrane is the latest title to get an insanely low price drop, but this time around, even $1 for the game is too much. Believe it or not, you can buy the game for just 9 CENTS! How crazy is that?! Even if you buy and hate the game, how mad would you be over just 9 cents? Luckily for you, we've only heard absolutely wonderful things about the game.

Grab Membrane here!
