The developer has built a reputation for creating challenging and rewarding puzzle games since 2013’s Sokobond, and four favourites – A Monster’s Expedition, Sokobond, Cosmic Express and A Good Snowman is Hard to Build – will now be made available on a single game cartridge in a physical release for the portable home console.
There is an iam8bit exclusive edition ($44.99) that includes the four games, reversible cover art, and a long-requested map of A Monster’s Expedition’s world, as well as a standard retail edition ($39.99) without these extras
The publisher has provided a brief overview for each of the four games in the collection as below:
- A Monster’s Expedition: A Monster’s Expedition is an adorable and relaxing open-world puzzle adventure for monsters who love to learn about humans. By pushing trees over to create pathways, you’ll explore hundreds of islands near and far to learn about the history of “humanity.” Immerse yourself in human culture with all-new exhibits from the “Human Englandland” dig site.
- Sokobond: Sokobond is an elegantly designed puzzle game about chemistry. It’s logical, minimalist, and crafted with love and science. Players move and manipulate atoms to build increasingly complex molecular bonds. Sokobond is a fascinating example of how puzzles can be intriguing and educational.
- Cosmic Express: Cosmic Express is a puzzle game about planning the train route for the world’s most awkward space colony. Passengers need to get to their preferred destinations, and it’s up to you to make it happen. It’s cute, harder than it looks, and guaranteed to give you hours of frustrating fun across hundreds of levels.
- A Good Snowman is Hard to Build: A Good Snowman is Hard to Build is a puzzle game about helping a monster roll snowballs around to build a snowman. Snowmen are built from stacks of snowballs arranged in decreasing size, which poses a challenge considering the size and arrangement of each room.
A Monster’s Expedition + Earlier Adventures will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in July 2022.
