Sumer is a straight-to-digital board game from Studio Wumpus. One of the game's designers/programmers, Sig Gunnarsson, was kind enough to agree to be our first developer interview last Summer. That interview, which you can read here, focused on Triple Agent!, a digital social deduction game that was releasing at the time. We briefly mentioned Sumer as a Steam game at the time. This week Studio Wumpus released Sumer on the Nintendo Switch. We haven't been in the habit of covering Switch games here, but to our (very non-exhaustive) knowledge, Sumer is the first of its kind to make its way to Switch. Certainly none of the other non-ports we have covered are out on Switch, at the very least.
Sumer promises a mix of worker-placement mechanics with more traditional videogame-like interaction. One of us here at Pixelated Cardboard happens to have a Switch, and the game is downloaded, but we haven't had the chance to play it. We will be sure to pass along some thoughts after we get the chance to sit down with the game.
For now, check out the official press release below with all the links you need along with a trailer and screenshots.
