Furniture & Mattress have revealed that their debut game Arranger: A Role-Puzzling Adventure will be released on Nintendo Switch in the coming months.

Following small-town misfit Jemma on her journey of self-discovery, you must venture beyond her stiflingly cosy confines to uncover an inspiring world that is ruled by fear and a strange, immovable static force.

With its gameplay taking place on an interconnected grid that spans the entire world, when Jemma moves the world moves with her. The hope is that this creates “both a playful sense of chaos and a regular stream of small, thoughtful puzzles that twist and play with the central mechanic.”

With help from 22nd Century Toys to port the game, it has been created by an experienced team that includes David Hellman (Braid), Nick Suttner (Carto), Nicolás Recabarren (Ethereal) and composer Tomás Batista (Per Aspera).

“We started talking about this project on March 10th, 2020, so obviously a lot has changed in the world since then,” reflects Furniture & Mattress co-founder Nick Suttner. “But we’ve done the best we can to stay positive in a challenging environment in which to make games, and to create something beautiful, breezy, and memorable that stays true to each of our sensibilities.

“While we’ve all been in games for a while, this was a milestone project for all of us – my first time working on a game from start to finish, Nico’s first time shipping a full-scope game across multiple platforms, and David’s first full game project since Braid. Thanks to anyone who gives it a shot, it means a lot to us!”

The developer has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • Unique, interconnected gameplay ‘grid’ that snappily unites movement, combat, and exploration.
  • A story-driven adventure about a small-town misfit on a journey of self-discovery.
  • A breezy RPG without XP or inventory to manage, where everything is handled in-world.
  • 8-10 hour campaign, with various assist options so that you only get as stuck as you want to be.
  • Debut game from an all-star development team, featuring the artist behind Braid.

Arranger: A Role-Puzzling Adventure will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2024.
