Game developers FIFTYTWO and their partners Jetdogs Oy officially announce the release of a new, yet already successful mobile game Kenshō for Nintendo Switch.
Although it was first released last year (2017), Kenshō received recognition as well as numerous nominations and awards. The name of the game refers to two terms from the Japanese philosophical concept, Zen: “Ken,” which means “seeing,” and “shō,” which means “nature.” It is shō, nature—its pricelessness, beauty and fragility—that is at the heart of the game, which takes place in a surreal room. Doors inside that room lead to different worlds and breathtaking environments, including lush jungles and stormy seas. The game of Kenshō tells its story through in-game cut-scenes and emoji-style conversations.
Kenshō comes to Switch this Spring.
Inspired by VHS Era B-Movies, Garage is a bloody top-down shooter. You play as Butch, an ex-drug dealer, who single-handedly slays hordes of mutants and the undead.
