Flux’s day began like any intergalactic trucker’s: hurtlin’ through the stars with space-coffee in hand, ready to bring packages of joy to various worlds. Then some jerk named Hewgodooko teleported in, wrecked her ship in search of useful tech, and caused Flux and her robot assistant Juicebox to crash-land (wink wink) on Woanope.
Crafting, taming creatures, and building a home becomes a meditative, chilled-out experience thanks to Crashlands’ infinite auto-sorted inventory. Erecting walls is as simple as finger-painting. Want some fancy walls and floors there? Done. A stable for new alien friends? Easy. Butterscotch Shenanigans even included muzak for maximum relaxation.
Flux’s trip to Woanope is an adventure across three huge biomes containing a 40+ hour Story Mode, NPCs, tons of sidequests, and big nasty bosses – all in a whimsical hand-drawn style. There is even Creative and Hardcore Mode for those who like to change-up their experience. It’s also cross-play with saves from the PC and mobile versions via Butterscotch Shenanigan’s Rumpus system. Oh, and it was developed by a trio of brothers in response to a cancer diagnosis. What’s not to love?
“Crashlands was therapeutic for me and my brothers to make while I was kicking cancer’s butt,” said Sam Coster, co-founder, Butterscotch Shenanigans “It’s a wonderfully wacky portal into our minds, and with the upcoming debut of co-op on Switch, we hope it brings your friends and family as much joy as it does our own.”
Crashlands comes to Nintendo Switch Nov. 8 for $14.99 / €14.99 on the Nintendo eShop. Pre-orders begin today at 10 AM PT. The game is currently available now in English and Simplified Chinese on iOS and Android for $6.99 and on Steam for $14.99 / €14.99.
