A new update has just gone live for Graceful Explosion Machine. If you’ve purchased the game, version 1.1.0 can now be downloaded.

Developer Dreadbit has shared more details about the Switch version if Ironcast. The game will come with some improvements (including extra content).

Here’s what we know:

  • 4 ways to play: with Joycon/pro controller when docked with the TV, Handheld mode with Joycons, tabletop with Joycon/pro controller and lastly (but also my favourite!) Handheld with touch-screen.
  • We’ve bundled all previous DLC Commanders and Ironcast in with this version. It’s the most complete package to date, with 7 Commanders and 7 mechs.
  • You can now fire on the first turn.
  • You can now sell older or unwanted systems for extra scrap.
  • Complete re-balancing of the gameplay experience to make for a more consistent and thus more fair, campaign experience.
  • All Commendation (persistent) unlocks now have more punch to them, making for a more meaningful upgrade after you die in a campaign.
  • Complete re-factoring of all UI in the game, to ensure fonts and buttons are all usable and easy to read whether playing on the Switch’s handheld mode or a 120″ projector screen.

Ironcast will be available for Switch on August 10.

A pair of new Switch-related campaigns have opened on Kickstarter. You can put down pledges for both Hex Gambit and Demoniaca. For Demoniaca, Switch is a stretch goal at $100,000.

Here’s the rundown on Hex Gambit:

In a world called Agon, the sharpest strategic minds command squads of expendable automatons in an explosive arena sport called the Hex Gambit.

Hex Gambit is a unique turn-based strategy game coming to Steam and the Nintendo Switch console, from the makers of the cult classic Outwitters (view our entire catalog of games here). It’s designed to get to the fun part fast: Drag and drop minions onto your side of the map on Turn 1; start hitting stuff on Turn 2! Games typically last 10-30 minutes (depending how fast you think), with the action always intensifying in the late game for an epic conclusion.

Our vision is to create something deceptively simple, focusing on a limited number of character abilities that have lots of creative uses and combinations. That makes it easy for you and your friends to learn the basics and start exploring your own strategies. You won’t need a seminar to get started!

And Demoniaca:

In DEMONIACA you will accompany the main character along her bloody journey of vengeance. DEMONIACA is a dark, gothic pixel art action platformer that combines Castlevania’s concept with classic Fighting Game combat mechanics, like “the King of Fighters”. In fact it is the first existing prototype of Kofvania.

Hex Gambit is planned for April 2018 on Switch. Demoniaca is targeted for sometime in 2018.
