Previously launched for the west back in September

LOS ANGELES, CA - October 1, 2020 - Akupara Games announces today that they will be launching Spinch on the Japanese Nintendo eShop on October 8, 2020. The debut title from award winning Canadian cartoonist Jesse Jacobs will be available to Japanese Switch owners for a launch discount lasting for a week, and is currently available now for PC on Steam, GoG, and Humble.

Enter into a world thick with bubbling psychedelia. Descend deep into a new ecology teeming with multiple pathways, luminous levels, and complex obstacles. Transcend the material realm and assume your true form as Spinch, a hyper-agile organism consumed by the quest to rescue its litter of missing offspring from an endless invasion of misshapen and malformed offbeats and oddities. Dash, dodge, jump, and even launch your own children as projectiles to take down six eccentric bosses in six vibrant worlds. With only a ticking clock and quick restarts - no lives or game overs - the game is welcoming to players of all experiences, but a formidable challenge to even the most capable of speedrunners.

Features:

- Retro-styled visual wonderland with a dazzling color explosion by award-winning Canadian cartoonist, Jesse Jacobs

- A fine-tuned platformer with tight controls to dash, dodge, and jump off surfaces to survive against neon spiders, massive rainbow worms, and bomb-dropping moondogs

- Plunge into the unique worlds ranging from neon plains, to experiment tanks, to frozen icelands, all the way to outer space!

- Face off against enigmatic bosses and shoot them down with your children as ammunition

- Inviting and replayable for everyone; a speedrunning challenge for the insane

- Soundtrack by famed Canadian artist, James Kirkpatrick, featuring compositions written on modified Gameboys and circuit-bent, hand-made instruments.

Check out the launch trailer for Spinch

The world of Spinch has been crafted and brought to life by talented award-winning Canadian cartoonist, Jesse Jacobs, known for his precise and detailed line work in combination with bold and simple color palettes. His works contain an affiliation with psychedelia, spirituality, alternate realities, and a blending of nature with technology. James Kirkpatrick, well known for his participation in the early Canadian graffiti movement and as avant-garde hip-hop artist, Thesis Sahib, created the audio landscape of retro soundbites and electronic sounds found within Spinch.

SPINCH Original Game Soundtrack Now Available

The sweet sounds of SPINCH

Materia Collective is excited to release the SPINCH (Original Game Soundtrack) by Thesis Sahib. This dance-inducing album features sampled Game Boys and other audio gadgets to create unique textures and a lush retro-flavored soundscape that pairs perfectly with this vibrant visual world. This soundtrack takes all the music and sounds from the game and turns them into a full-length cohesive album that is enjoyable both within and outside of the gaming experience. The SPINCH (Original Game Soundtrack) is available today on all platforms:

"My goal for this album was to present several longer playing 'song' versions of each world, pause screens, bonus worlds and many of the sound effects that I initially created for the game SPINCH and for these to all work together to create a full album," comments Thesis Sahib. "The combination of unique audio textures and sound sources not normally used to create a song (circuit bent toys, found sounds, Game Boy) and the fact that the songs can stand alone as their own piece yet reference the full game makes this album different."

In SPINCH, players transcend the material realm and assume the form of Spinch, a hyper-agile organism consumed by the quest to rescue a litter of its missing offspring, in this side-scrolling, psychedelic platformer from the mind of award-winning Canadian cartoonist, Jesse Jacobs. SPINCH is published by Akupara Games.
