Independent developer Sumo Digital, the studio behind AAA blockbusters Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed and LittleBigPlanet 3, recently announced that Snake Pass, its slithery physics platformer, is out now on PlayStation®4, Xbox One™, Nintendo Switch™ and PC. Priced at $19.99/€19.99/£15.99, Snake Pass is a retro-inspired platformer, where players slither, curl and climb their way through increasingly challenging worlds filled with intricate obstacles and fiendishly mind-bending challenges.
“Almost one year on from its debut at EGX Rezzed, Snake Pass is available now on consoles and PC,” said Seb Liese, creator of Snake Pass. “I really hope that Noodle and Doodle’s puzzle platforming adventure resonates with players – it’s a whole new way of looking at a 3D platformer, with a super fun and unique control scheme.”
“As our first internally incubated property, I’m very proud of what this team has achieved. Developing our own characters and self-publishing Snake Pass, has been a hugely rewarding experience for the studio,” said Paul Porter, COO of Sumo Digital. “We have worked hard to launch on all platforms, to make sure that as many gamers as possible can try out our labour of love simultaneously.”
Snake Pass is available now on Nintendo Switch via the eShop, Xbox One via the Xbox Games Store, PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store and PC via Steam or the Windows Store. Snake Pass supports HDR on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One S, for players with an HDR compatible TV.
When a mysterious intruder threatens the tranquility of their home, it’s up to Noodle the Snake and Doodle the Hummingbird to embark on a daring journey to save the day. Controlling this dynamic duo, you must ‘think like a snake’ and slither, curl and climb your way through 15 levels across 4 increasingly challenging themed worlds. Snake Pass is a unique take on the platforming genre that is intuitive and fun to learn, but will gradually test your snake charming skills to the limit!
