Posted on June 7, 2017 by in News, Switch eShop

A new game has been discovered on the Switch eShop. It seems Bulbware’s Bulb Boy, a horror puzzle adventure, will launch on Switch months ahead of the other platforms.

French website JeGeekJePlay has reported it to launch on June 20 for a price of €7.99 / £7.19 according to a photo of the eShop itself. Furthermore, Nintendo Life has published that it will release this summer in all regions, so we suppose that previous date applies to North America as well.

Here’s the official Switch trailer, so you can see for yourselves how the game looks.

And here’s an overview from the eShop:

Multi-award winning 2D horror puzzle adventure about a boy with a glowing heat.

One gloomy night, Bulb Boy wakes suddenly from a frightening nightmare to discovery that evil has overshadowed the Bulbhouse. His family has disappeared and there are horrid monsters lurking in the shadows. Gather the courage and use his glass head to save everything he loves.

Bulb Boy is an intuitive 2D point & click horror adventure about a boy with a glowing head (alright, it’s a bulb…) inspired by Machinarium and Gobliins.
