Gunman Clive creator shows videos for new 3D action-platformer, future unclear

Gunman Clive creator Bertil Hörberg has been working on an interesting-looking project for quite some time, but its future status is unclear.
Hörberg shared a couple of videos yesterday showing his new 3D action game made in a custom engine. The second video is from last February, and there’s been “very little progress” since that point. Hörberg said he’s “been thinking of scrapping it several times,” though “whenever I try come up with something else I feel like I’d actually rather do this project”. While Hörberg feels that its scope is too large and “has a lot of unsolved problems,” it may be “this or nothing at all.”
The two videos are as follows:
Both Gunman Clive games are on Nintendo platforms, so Hörberg would likely target something such as Switch if this project ever comes to fruition. If nothing else, it has a very unique style.

Mini Metro dev “considering” the game for Switch
Posted on 10 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 5 Comments | 0 Likes
Dinosaur Polo Club created its “subway layout game” Mini Metro a couple of years ago. Now it would appear that it has a chance of making its way to Switch.
Regarding a Switch edition, Dinosaur Polo Club said it’s currently under consideration. Since the port would be “a big project,” the team has “to think it through” before fully committing.
@SuperNintendad We're considering it, but it’s would a big project that we need to think through. Definitely would be neat though! -NB

Mini Metro is somewhat of an obscure game. You can see what it’s like for yourself below.
Thanks to Chris B for the tip.

De Mambo will be on Switch first, Survival Mode introduced
Posted on 10 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 4 Comments | 0 Likes
De Mambo was something that we found out about for Switch before the developer actually made an announcement. That changed today, with developer The Dangerous Kitchen making things official.
Even though the Nintendo release was just announced, De Mambo will be on Switch first. Doing so provides the team with “far more exposure than other platforms”.
The Dangerous Kitchen wrote in a blog post:
Nintendo approached us at Bitsummit 4 last year and after many laborious discussions about how much money we wanted to pay them to allow us to be on the (at that time) NX, they decided to not accept our fanboyish money and instead allow us entry into the Kingdom of leave-luck-to-Heaven.
The Switch is the perfect home for De Mambo, something that Nintendo themselves saw, and so we couldn’t let this once in a lifetime opportunity slip away— who else has their first game available in the launch period of a new console!? But, there is one caveat to all this. We are focusing on the Switch version first, before the other versions.

The original Ittle Dew graced the Wii U eShop a few years ago. As we learned during the Nindies Showcase last month, the sequel is coming to Switch in the near future.
Ludosity shared a release window for the Switch eShop release on Twitter earlier today. There’s no specific date yet, but it should be available this summer. Ludosity also ruled out bringing the first Ittle Dew to Switch.
@BeargrimPlays Ittle Dew 1 is not being developed for new platforms any more. ID2 should be out this summer!
