World of Goo and Little Inferno will both have local multiplayer on Switch
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 5 Comments
We previously heard that Tomorrow Corporation was planning local multiplayer for World of Goo on Switch and possibility its other two games. The team decided against having it in Human Resource Machine since “it would be too chaotic for a game that needs such concentration,” though it could possibly be added in the future. However, we can say that Little Inferno will in fact have multiplayer.
Tomorrow Corporation wrote in a new blog update:
“The brand new Switch Edition is the first and only version of Little Inferno to feature multiplayer. Now you can drag a friend through your personal existential crisis! It’s incredibly satisfying to rip things apart and burn it all down with a friend. Also perfect for couples.”
It sounds like, at least in the case of Little Inferno, that local multiplayer will be added in about a week via a title update. That’s because the original game in its single-player form was approved first, followed by multiplayer. We’ll keep you informed about the patch when we hear something new.
World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine hitting Switch this week in North America
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 6 Comments
Tomorrow Corporation originally intended to have World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine on the Switch eShop for the system’s launch. That didn’t happen in the end, but we didn’t have to wait too long for their release.
Tomorrow Corporation has now confirmed that World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine will all be out on Thursday. In North America, that is. No date yet for Europe, but there should be news soon. And since the eShop is technically region free as long as you have a Nintendo Account with the correct region, technically anyone can grab these games in a couple of days.

Tomorrow Corporation’s games not guaranteed for Switch launch next week
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 4 Comments
Tomorrow Corporation previously announced three eShop releases for Switch launch. World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine were all previously on track for March 3. However, there could be a bump in the road.
True to his lighthearted nature, Tomorrow Corporation’s Kyle Gabler told Polygon the following when asked if the company is still on board for Swich’s launch:
“We hope we can make it! We’re still just 3 people, trying to launch 3 games on March 3rd — and it’s going to be close. For reference, the Zelda team has approximately 2.9 billion people and a really fast horse, but we’re close behind. Save some champagne for us, Nintendo, we’re going to be bloody and tired and maybe not all 3 of us will make it alive, but we’re going to get there, and the games will be stunning!”
For Nintendo’s part, they’re only saying the following:
“In addition to Fast RMX, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, day-one digital titles on the eShop will include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch, Super Bomberman R and Just Dance 2017.”
By the way, those hoping that previous purchases of Tomorrow Corporation’s games from older Nintendo systems can’t be transferred in any way. “We cannot comment on the content of each game, but we have nothing to announce regarding past purchases carrying over,” Nintendo said.

We recently fired off some questions to Tomorrow Corporation’s Kyle Gabler in hopes of learning a bit more about World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine on Switch. What we didn’t expect were incredibly entertaining replies, making for one of our zaniest interviews yet.
We did ask Tomorrow Corporation about its initial slate of Switch titles. Additionally, Gabler teased future projects. Two are on the way, one of which is the biggest game yet from Tomorrow Corporation.

World of Goo will support local multiplayer on Switch
Posted on 3 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 2 Comments
Tomorrow Corporation has slowly been rolling out information about its three re-releases on Switch. World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine are all targeted for the system’s launch.
In a soon-to-be-published interview with Nintendo Everything, Tomorrow Corporation also confirmed that World of Goo will support local multiplayer. That’s thanks to the various play and control options that Switch affords. We were additionally told that the co-op feature is being investigated for the company’s other games.
When World of Goo originally came to Wii, up to four players were able to interact with the game using Wii Remotes. The controllers were used to point and move around different gooballs on the screen. It should play somewhat similarly on Switch, though we may have to wait a bit longer for the finer details.

When World of Goo comes to Switch next month, you’ll be able to play the game in a variety of ways. For one thing, the system’s touchscreen is supported. A motion pointer option is also included similar to the Wii version back in the day.
