SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Quintus and the Absent Truth’, Plus Today’s Other Releases and the Latest Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for July 6th, 2022. It’s a bit of a quiet one today, friends. We’ve got a couple of new releases to look at, and they both seem okay but not too much more than that. We also have a few new sales to check out, but nothing to go running up and down the street shouting at the top of your voice about. The biggest part of today’s article is the list of expiring sales as the Big Ol’ Super Sale comes to a close. Well, nothing to it but through it. Let’s go!

New Releases

Quintus and the Absent Truth ($9.99)

This is quite unique. It’s a first-person horror adventure with an unusual visual style where you play as both a person and a mouse. You have to decide what the situation calls for and switch between them as needed to solve the puzzles you’ll come across. The man is trying to find his daughter, but what truth will he end up arriving at instead? Note that this game has more than a handful of jump scares, so be sure you’re okay with those before you buy this.

Cursed Island ($4.99)

A combination of Terraria-ish side-scrolling play and top-down survival action, Cursed Island seems like it might be really good, but just ends up being adequate. It’s only five bucks, so if it somehow tugs at your imagination it won’t cost you very much to pick it up.

Sales

(North American eShop, US Prices)

That’s not much of a list of new sales at all, really. The kinds of games I haven’t been including lately with my new strict curation. But needs must, so here they are. Now, as to that outbox. Yes, it’s big. It’s very, very big. It will take some time to go through it all, but I recommend you invest that time because we may not see a sale quite this big again for a very long while. Happy hunting!

Games like Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series, Zero Tolerance Collection, Overrogue, and more will be released, and we’ll have summaries of all of them. I’m also hoping for a slightly better list of new sales, but that’s impossible to predict at this point. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday, and as always, thanks for reading!
