Spinch Is Your Brain On Drugs

Another game revealed today during the Day of the Devs segment on Summer Games Fest, Spinch is a side-scrolling platformer from Queen Bee Games.

Some of the things that caught my eye include the fact that Spinch is a Canadian-made video game. It also looks like something your brain would create on some mighty fine psychedelics. I’m sold on the premise and after watching the trailer.

Enter into a world thick with bubbling psychedelia. Descend deep into a new ecology teeming with multiple pathways, luminous levels, and complex obstacles. Transcend the material realm and assume your true form as Spinch, a hyper-agile organism consumed by the quest to rescue its litter of missing offspring from an endless invasion of misshapen and malformed offbeats and oddities. Dash, dodge, jump, and even launch your own children as projectiles to take down six eccentric bosses in six vibrant worlds. With only a ticking clock and quick restarts – no lives or game overs – the game is welcoming to players of all experiences, but a formidable challenge to even the most capable of speedrunners.

Spinch will launch on Nintendo Switch and PC. There’s a demo available on Steam for you to try.
