Nintendo of Europe has presented a "Indie Highlights" presentation today, outlining new titles coming to the Switch.

  • First out of the gate is Night Call, by Raw Fury. In the adventure game, you play a Parisian cab driver who helps to solve crime in the city. The noir style game launches in early 2019.
  • Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, which has been teased for a year and a half, finally has a release date (and a vocal theme song). The throwback platformer launches on 6 November.
  • The Voxel Agents debuted The Gardens Between, a 3D puzzle game. It will launch on 20 September and can be preloaded now.
  • tinyBuild's Streets of Rogue, revealed last year, will finally come to Switch in Winter 2018.
  • Bad North, the viking-themed strategy rouge-lite from Raw Fury, is available today. Joining the party today are also Double Eleven's Prison Architect and Cosmoscope's shooter Morphie's Law. Prison Architect includes two PC expansions, with a new DLC which features playing as a prisoner coming later this summer.
  • Broforce will actually end the Summer of Devolver on 6 September, with The Messenger launching next week (30 August).
  • 11-Bit Studios showed off three titles: Moonlighter, This War of Mine, as well as a new title called Children of Morta. Moonlighter will launch in fall, This War of Mine in November and Children of Morta in early 2019.
  • Everspace: Stellar Edition is a space shooter that takes place in a first person perspective, with ship customization. Launching in December, the Switch edition will include the PC expansion.
  • Baba Is You from Hempuli is a puzzle game that works by changing the last word of a phrase in the format "x is y". It launches in December.
  • Megacrit Games's Slay the Spire, to be published by Humble Bundle, is a card-based 2D RPG. Touch screen support is available in handheld mode, as well as Joy-Con support. It is slated to launch in early 2019.
  • The previously announced Windjammers was shown for launch on 23 October, alongside Windjammers 2 in 2019. The sequel was shown with a cutscene in the Japanese animated tradition.

I'm interested in that game, but am worried the community is going to be dead.  And is this a Nintendo Switch exclusive?

All the run-based darlings are coming to Switch! Or most of them at least.

This is a lot of indie games. I don't know what to pick!
