TumbleSeed rolls onto Nintendo Switch next month

The official Twitter account for the rolling roguelike TumbleSeed has announced that the game will launch on the Nintendo Switch on May 2nd.


For those that are unaware of what TumbleSeed is all about, here’s an overview taken from the game’s official website;

TumbleSeed is a deceptively deep roguelike about balancing a seed up a dangerous and ever-changing mountain.

Roll up a procedurally generated mountain avoiding holes and defeating corrupted creatures in this dual-stick action balance game. Grow powerful with upgrades, meet new friends and master the art of rolling to reach the peak and save your home.

TumbleSeed features 5 unique worlds, over 30 powers to acquire and master over the course of each run, a daily challenge to compete with your friends or globally and many more surprises, secrets and adventures.

The abilities that you will have at your disposable to assist you on your mountain climb include the following;

  • ThornSeed


This is your default attack from the start, you always have it. It’s tough to use and is a bit of a risk, but in the right hands sometimes it’s all you need.

  • SpringSeed


Sometimes things get a little too hot and you have to escape. SpringSeed lets you fly above danger so you can settle somewhere safer. It also pairs well with dangerous offensive seeds like BombBud, Maneater, LaserTrap and more!

  • StormSeed


Holes are everywhere in TumbleSeed. StormSeed calls down a rain cloud and fills in holes with buckets of rain water. It’s another seed that pairs well with dangerous offensive seeds like MaceSeed, ThornThrowers and more!

It sounds like you will need to utilise these abilities, and the others made available to you, if you are going to be successful in this game – TumbleSeed may look colourful and cute but it will certainly pose a challenge to most gamers!
