We’ll be working on a review for Embracelet, so I got in touch with Machineboy to talk a bit about the game and its development. Come check it out!
PS4Blog: Hi Mattis! How are you doing today?
Howdy! I am doing well, I launched my game a week ago, and it’s been fun and rewarding reading reviews and getting great feedback from players!
PS4B: Last time around when we talked about Milkmaid of the Milky Way, we also touched upon the development of Embracelet, and it’s now finally out on Nintendo Switch! For those that might be new to the game, how would you describe it?
Embracelet is a heartwarming coming-of-age story with light puzzles and exploration about a boy who inherits s magical bracelet with mysterious powers. It’s a cozy, emotional experience that you’ll want to play to the end.
PS4B: Have there been any changes to the game’s overall structure over the last year that helped to shape it into the version we now get to play?
There haven’t been huge changes as most of the story elements were set from the start. But I think it looks, plays, and performs better than it did a year ago. And of course, writing the music and adding sound effects have had a big impact on how it feels to play it now!
PS4B: With Milkmaid of the Milky Way and Embracelet out on Nintendo’s console, have you considered the possibility of having both games on a physical Nintendo Switch cartridge as a Machineboy Collection of sorts?
That would have been awesome! I already have a Complete Machineboy Collection bundle on Steam with both games and soundtracks, but a physical version would definitely be sweet.
PS4B: And now it’s time for us to go. Is there something else you’d like to add?
Be sure to check out Embracelet and all the other cool and different indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch. And if you like games from small studios, spread the word, as it means a lot to us smaller developers!
