Merge Games and Ion Lands have issued a first update for Cloudpunk. The title now has an inverted Y axis option, a new home screen icon, and more.

Below are the full patch notes:

Cloudpunk made it to Switch this week, but not without some controversy. Some have taken notice that screenshots shown on the eShop aren’t entirely representative of how it looks on Nintendo’s console. There’s also been talk of the frame rate struggling a bit.

Merge Games, the publisher of Cloudpunk, has now issued a lengthy statement about the game. The company says it’s working on a patch to improve stability and performance as well as to address a quest issue.

As for Switch, Merge apologized “to the community who feel misled by the lack of parity between Switch and other platforms,” explaining that “this version has been difficult to optimize due to the system’s technical limitations”. The good news is that Merge will continue to put in work to make the Switch version “as close as possible to the other platforms”.
