Ball-juggling platformer HackyZack bounces onto Nintendo Switch next week
Launches 23 August, includes all-new 2-player mode created exclusively for Nintendo Switch
14 August, 2018 – Indie publisher Digerati, in partnership with Spaceboy Games and Kittehface Software, is delighted to announce that ball-juggling puzzle platformer HackyZack will be bouncing its way to Nintendo Switch on 23 August.
In addition to this news, players who like to have a ball together will be thrilled to hear that they’ll be able to tackle HackyZack with a friend, thanks to an all-new local 2-player mode created exclusively for the Nintendo Switch version.
HackyZack is available to pre-order now with a 10% discount from the Nintendo eShop.
Created by Zack Bell and Alle Hitti (who both previously worked on colorful platformer INK), HackyZack has been described by Engadget as “a speedrunner’s dream”.
The game was featured as part of 2018’s Awesome Games Done Quick speedrunning charity marathon and was completed by speedrunner Hornlitz in a phenomenally impressive 8 minutes and 36 seconds. (Note: unless you are a sorcerer of games, this time is in no way indicative of how long it takes to complete HackyZack.)
