Armor Games Studios and Massive Monster have prepared a new developer diary for The Adventure Pals, an action-packed co-op platformer due out on Switch this spring. It’s narrated by artist Julian Wilton and offers a brief, humorous recap of the project including talk about the four design pillars for the game, how the team came together, transitioning from flash games to a multiplatform release on consoles, and how they came to work with Armor Games. Check out the video below.

Framed and Framed 2 are on the way as Framed Collection, Loveshack Entertainment and Surprise Attack Games have announced. A release is planned for this spring.

Both games offer “a fusion of unique game mechanics and clever narrative puzzles in a noir tale of stylish heists, fast getaways and nail-biting escapades”. The game involves “rearranging the panels of an animated comic book to alter the order of events and change the outcome from disaster to success.”

We have more information and a trailer for Framed Collection below.

We haven’t heard about the update since then, and it sounds like Zen Studios has pulled the plug on those original plans. Community representative Gabor Hajdu passed along the following note to one fan:
