Sold Out and Stonewheat & Sons have confirmed a release date for their “chaotic postal puzzler” KeyWe on Nintendo Switch in August.
Starring Jeff and Debra, two postal-working kiwi birds, KeyWe challenges you to type telegrams, ship packaged and send urgent messages. With no hands to help them, that means that you must jump, flap, peck and butt-slam the levers, bells and buttons that you need to use making for a frantic mailroom.
“We’ve set our heart on making a warm, lighthearted game that friends and families can laugh at and enjoy together,” explains Stonewheat & Sons animator Joel Davis. “It’s been a blast creating the colourful Telepost and its unusual staff, and we can’t wait to welcome players to the world of Bungalow Basin on August 31.”
Sold Out senior product manager Katie Clark adds: “KeyWe is an outrageously adorable game to play with a friend. We’re incredibly proud of the whole team at Stonewheat & Sons and hope players will see something special in this game, the same way we do at Sold Out.”
Those that pre-order the game will receive the Early Bird Pack, which will unlock bonus in-game content that includes:
- Experimental Postal Pack Backwear: From the minds at Belby University, the Experimental Postal Pack is a multi-purpose marvel of modern engineering! When Jeff & Debra wear this groovy gizmo, they’ll unlock new objectives to test its mysterious properties, like hunting magnetic disturbances, collecting static charges, or escaping hungry singularities, while still performing their postal duties, of course!
- Zuni the Baby Octopus Backwear: As precious as she is pink, Zuni the Baby Octopus would love nothing more than to ride along on Jeff and Debra’s back as they perform their postal duties. She promises not to get ink on any of the envelopes.
- Cassowary Cowl Facewear: The Telepost cassowary delivery team are known for their speed, stamina, and stubbornness. They are not known for their observational skills. Disguise yourself as one with this wearable mask.
- Buck’s Big Bushy Beard Facewear: Jeff and Debra’s boss is Telepost station chief Buck Hamm, a jovial postman with years of experience and a very well-groomed beard. Fortunately, he also has a good sense of humor, so he’ll probably appreciate the kiwis imitating his trademark look with this beard, moustache, hat, headset and glasses set.
KeyWe will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 31st August 2021.
