NamaTakahashi has revealed that its charming 2D pixel-art puzzle-platformer ElecHead is coming to Nintendo Switch.

In a world that has been enveloped in darkness, deep inside a factory the small but courageous robot Elec sets out on a mission to bring light back to the world.

Whenever Elec touches walls, floors, platforms, switches and more, he makes electricity run through them – activating them. He can also detach and throw his head to trigger things from a distance, but you must be careful, as if he doesn’t retrieve his head in 10 seconds he will shut down.

“I’m excited to announce that ElecHead is coming soon to Nintendo Switch!” NamaTakahashi enthuses. “I made the prototype of this game when I was still a student, for a contest where the theme was ‘Flow,’ and I drew inspiration from some of my favourite games. After graduation, I wanted to turn it into a full game. The basic rules and mechanics are simple but intuitive, giving you that satisfying ‘Aha!’ moment over and over. I hope you’ll have a good time playing on Nintendo Switch!”

The developer has outlined the game’s key features as below:

  • Simple controls;
  • The player goes to the next level seamlessly, no time to rest;
  • There’s a limited amount of gimmicks, but it’s up to the player to find the different ways to use them to solve puzzles in the different levels;
  • Minimalist graphics with a retro-feel that lets the player focus on the game mechanics;
  • Playtime: 2-3 hours, even busy people can play (Hidden rooms or secrets to discover);
  • No in-game text or tutorial: can be played by anyone around the globe, intuitive gameplay.

ElecHead will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2022.
