Developers Terri Vellmann and Doseone and publisher Devolver Digital have announced that Sludge Life will launch on Nintendo Switch and Steam with a release date of June 2, 2021, and it will be 15% off if preordered. Till now, the game has been an Epic Games Store exclusive, where it is currently still free. (Maybe you should just go download it there.)
Devolver Digital succinctly describes the weirdness of Sludge Life as a “first-person / open-world / vandalism-centric stroll through a polluted island full of cranky idiots and a vibe so thick you can taste it. Play as upcoming tagger GHOST set on staking their claim amongst the graffiti elite.” If you didn’t understand any of that, maybe the Sludge Life Steam & Nintendo Switch trailer will clear things up — emphasis on maybe.
If you’re a PC gamer, you have to really hate Epic Games Store for some reason if you’re interested in this game and didn’t already download it for free there. However, if you’re strictly a console gamer and/or would much prefer to enjoy a quirky game like this mobile, then holding out for a Nintendo Switch option makes much more sense.
Alternatively, if Sludge Life doesn’t float your Switch boat, Devolver Digital might interest you in Boomerang X instead.
