Stardew Valley is currently celebrating its 4-year anniversary.

While we don't have a release date or details, we do know this patch will bump the game up to Version 1.5. Hopefully we get some insight into this patch in the near future.

Learning about the coding tricks in the original Sonic the Hedgehog

See Sonic like never before

We've all played the original Sonic the Hedgehog a million times before, but have you ever seen the game broken down piece-by-piece on a technical level?

WORLD OF HORROR dev says it's "too early to tell" if there will be physical Switch version

It wouldn't be a horrible decision

WORLD OF HORROR, the 1-bit text adventure game, is making its way to Switch in 2020. As of right now, the game will only get an eShop release. Could a physical version come about at some point? We asked Panstasz, the developer of the game, and he offered up this comment.

Not saying it's not! It's too early to tell though.

Seems like we need to get a bit closer to the Switch version launching before that discussion can happen. With the unique look of this game, I'd be pretty surprised if a boutique publisher or two didn't contact the dev for a retail release. Keep your fingers crossed!

Victory Heat Rally Kickstarter may include a Switch stretch goal

This definitely needs to come to Switch

Victory Heat Rally, a "neo super scaling" racer, is going to launch an official Kickstarter later this week. Hoping to see this game on Switch? While nothing is confirmed at this time, it does seem like there will be a chance.

The developer has been fielding questions on Twitter about the game, and when he was asked about a Switch release, he said nothing is guaranteed, but the Kickstarter's first stretch goal will likely be for a Switch version. When the Kickstarter launches, we'll be sure to pop in and check out the stretch goals. If Switch is included, we'll let you know!
