Welcome to Nifty Nindies, our new bitesize feature for Miketendo64 where we catch up with an indie developer/publisher/publicist to briefly go over an upcoming Nindie title that Switch owners can look forwards to.


To continue the new series, here’s The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild’s responses to our 5 Nifty Nindies questions:


  • What is it?
  • Who is behind it? The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild.
  • What is it about? Tumblestone is the first original action-puzzle game of the past fifteen years – completely reinventing the genre into a deep and cerebral puzzle solving experience. Diverging from the staid match-3 formula of Bejeweled, Tumblestone strips out all the random gem flipping junk, and elevates the genre with unique puzzles and intense multiplayer gameplay in the spirit of Tetris Attack and Dr. Mario. This isn’t a game for people who want to lull themselves to sleep, no, Tumblestone is for gamers who love old-school puzzle games! Brought to life with beautiful hand-drawn artwork, Tumblestone offers several deep and exciting game modes for both single-player and competitive multiplayer. Help the Sausage King make friends and discover what happened to the Tumblecrown in the 40-hour story campaign featuring twelve worlds, each with a unique twist on the core mechanic. Test your mettle in multiplayer with up to four players, or indulge in multiple arcade modes, including fast-paced Heartbeat mode, brainy Infinipuzzle mode, and relaxing Marathon mode.
  • When can we hope to see it in the eShop? October 5, 2017, in North America and Europe.
  • How much will it cost? $14.99 USD (*Prices for other Countries & Regions will vary.)



For more information regarding Tumblestone, we highly recommended checking out the game’s trailer, which you can see for yourself right here:
