One of the highlights of last year’s Apple Arcade launch was Where Cards Fall, a slice-of-life puzzle game where you would create houses of cards to guide your character through an artfully geometric landscape. It was an Apple Arcade exclusive at the time, and was certainly one of the more compelling reasons to subscribe to the service. Now, however, it will finally be arriving for the Nintendo Switch, Steam and the Epic Games Store early next year.
Guess what? Where Cards Fall is coming soon to PC and Switch! The game will be available on @Steam, @EpicGames, and Nintendo Switch @NintendoAmerica early 2021. Wishlist it now on Epic Games and Steam (links below). pic.twitter.com/GrS6o5tv86— Where Cards Fall (@wherecardsfall) October 19, 2020
Where Cards Fall is meant to be a mobile game, but its story and mechanics are far deeper than is typical of the genre. In our hands-on last year, our own Jessica Conditt said that the game is rich and highly interactive, as you’re building a living world without any discrete levels or loading screens. Building the cards might be simple, but figuring out the puzzles gets more difficult over time. The upside is that there’s no death in this game, so you get to focus in on the puzzles and the story without having to worry about dying.
According to the game’s developer, you can wishlist it now on Epic Games and Steam, and just keep an eye out for it on Nintendo’s eShop.
