Merge Games and Rebelephant have announced that their game Mainlining is out now on Nintendo Switch.

Mainlining can be purchased on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $14.99 / €14.99 / £11.99. For anyone who buys from now until July 4th  will receive a 15% discount.

All Systems Online! Mainlining – Out Now on Nintendo Switch!

Good afternoon Agent,

We’re delighted to announce that Mainlining, the Point-and Click Hacking Adventure game is OUT NOW on Nintendo Switch! Use your detective skills to build your case and take down these cyber-criminals.

Mainlining is an exhilarating foray into the world of cybercrime! The game mixes dark and dry humour with a gripping narrative, that will have you hooked from the very first case. Following the government’s introduction of the BLU Pill Act and the Secret Intelligence Service’s reintroduction of MI7, all online personal data is accessible by the powers that be. Mainlining questions techno-ethics and asks whether it is acceptable for an organisation to have the power to look at personal data – what if somebody else had access to that information?


As an MI7 operative, your primary objective is to facilitate the arrest of the perpetrator and to ensure that the courts have sufficient evidence to hand out the longest custodial sentences possible. However, you’ll also have to make judgements on whether the case you’re working on is complete. Move in too quickly and you may miss leads linking your case to much higher profile cyber-criminals. Act too slowly and your suspect may detect you and escape.

In excess of five hundred criminals are known to operate within your jurisdiction – where will you begin?

*New for Nintendo Switch*
