As a collector of physical Switch cartridges, my principles forbid me buy a digital download for more than $10, so every week I find five great budget Switch games in the Nintendo eShop discounted to $10 or less. (in no particular order.)
This week’s top five:
You’re agents assigned to investigate a dead body found in the town of Thimbleweed Park. This town is so strange, it may as well be Twin Peaks; the dead body is probably the smallest mystery in the game. If you like point-and-click investigation games that play out like an episode of The X-Files, this game is an easy choice.
What Remains Of Edith Finch
You play as Edith Finch, the last of your family, returning to your childhood home to remember your past and find out what happened to all your relatives by solving puzzles.
Guacamelee 2 is a sequel to the groundbreaking combat-platformer I’ve recommended before. Lots of challenging levels, and even a few 2-player co-op puzzles.
If you want something a little more passive than Edith Finch, Gone Home is a combat-free & puzzle-free story about returning home after a year abroad to find your whole family is missing. You have to explore the house and investigate objects to discover where your family has gone.
You play as a crime-scene cleaner for the mob in this 2D stealth-action game. Clean up crime scenes before the police can gather any evidence.
Dead By Daylight
Dead By Daylight is a 1-v-4 multiplayer game where you play as a killer or one of the four survivors. As a survivor, you must run and hide from the killer or rescue other captured survivors; and as the killer, you have to hunt them down and capture them before they escape!
