[Switch] Death Squared $1.99 (Was $14.99) @ Nintendo eShop

2240

Cheapest price so far on this awesome game from this popular Australian studio :)


Prove your teamwork skills in Death Squared as you solve puzzles together or die trying! Each player needs to guide a robot to a colour-coded goal, but the path is beset with deadly traps and hazards. Teams of players will need close observation and communication to keep each other alive and discover a solution together.

Complete the main campaign with one or two players, then take a group into four-player Party Mode for the ultimate teamwork trial! For those that can't get enough, head to the 'Vault' to find extra experiments recommended only for the brave.

Features:

  • a micro-journey of: surprise > discovery > mastery > success
  • Full voice acting by Rice Pirate
  • 80x puzzling levels in the Story levels
  • 40x 4 Player Party levels
  • 30x Vault Levels (too hard for the main game)

As always, enjoy :)

    Pick it up for $5.54 few months back. Awesome fun in co-op. A no brainer at $1.99. Supporting an aussie dev too.

    I bought this when it was around $5 and thought it was worth every cent. At $1.99 its truly a bargain.

    $2 for a well recieved co-op Switch game made in Australia? Shut up and take my money.

    Any single player value at all? I have a switch lite, and no friends.

      Yeah, you can play it by yourself as a puzzle game. There is a single player mode where you control two cubes by yourself (a bit like Brothers).

      Edit: To confirm single player mode.

    Thanks OP! Love a good coop game, at $2 I can't resist. Used my gold points and only paid $0.39 too, big win!

    Thanks, just bought! About to finish overcooked with wife. This could be a good next game, looks like a lot of fun!

    Never heard of it. Cost me 49c with coins. Thanks OP!

    Is this fun co-op with happy positive reinforcement and a strong sense of achievement or bad co-op like Overcooked where you bring up old arguments with your partner about that time on holiday and how you just don't listen to me Matthew I want a divorce

      There is a lot of killing each other accidentally (or intentionally!), but It's far less of a pressure-cooker environment than Overcooked, so I think your marriage would be safe with this one! :)

      It's more of a puzzle co-op than a stressful timer countdown co-op game.

        thanks for the nice comments. yes this is a much more puzzle based game. and each level is small. it can be frustrating but not a huge loss of time when you fail. also good for kids / older players too.

    Been meaning to pick this up for a while but missed the last deal. My wife and I had some good fun with the demo, no brainer at this price.

  • +1 vote

    Niiice. I have enough Gold Points in my account to get this for just 90c.

    •  

      Anyone know if the developers take a hit when paying with Gold Points?

      There's not a lot of margin in $1.99 games so I'd rather save my points if it's coming out of their pocket as well…

  •  

    They've announced the release date for their new game 'moving out'. Looks like a heap of fun.

    Thanks used 199 gold points so paid nothing.

    Confirmed can play party mode on a switch lite. Left and right joy sticks controls cubes 1 and 2. Hold ZL or ZR + L/R joy stick to control cubes 3 and 4.

  •  

    This was just announced for Xbox Game Pass & PC if you have those, otherwise this is a steal.

    "In order to continue, please access Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch console linked to this Nintendo Account."

    Going to be buying a Switch soon, is there any workaround to get this deal?

    Is there a gifting system where I could get a friend to buy and hold it then gift it to me in a few weeks? Or anything like that?

    • +1 vote

      Not really, unless your friend doesn't have the game, and doesn't want it. (If they don't have the game, you could link your account to their Switch and then purchase it online through the website. But if they already own the game, you won't be able to purchase it, even through the website.)

      •  

        so a switch can have multiple accounts linked at once, and also be de-linked and have the link transferred to another switch?

        • +1 vote

          Yes, you can.

          The only issue, as I mentioned, is that the eShop will check all accounts linked to that Switch (as primary) when checking if a game is owned - so you can't purchase a game that is already owned by an account on that Switch.

          If your friend doesn't own the game (and doesn't want it), then you'll be fine! :)

              @xrailgun: No worries!

              Worst comes to worst, the game will definitely go on sale again, so it's not a big deal if you miss it this time.

              But if you can arrange it, then great, because then you will be able to play it immediately when you get your Switch! Enjoy! :)

            Unlink account via console (website has limited unlinks) purchase games log back into the eShop on the console and it auto relinks.

              @sss333: Ah, wont that delete their user data? (I thought you could no longer unlink an account from the Switch, and could only delete the user entirely…if not not, my bad!)

              Either way, is it really worth the hassle for your friend unlinking their own account just so you can buy a game that will go on sale several times a year anyway?

    Purchased. Better yet I've still got $60 of credit in my account when the Nintendo shop cards were discounted just before christmas.

  •  

    Picked this up at $6 bucks great deal

  •  

    I bought it purely from the trailer when it was around $6 and it was a great deal then. Keep it up !

  •  

    Love that the dev is on here commenting. That's enough to sway me to try it out :)

  •  

    We played the demo and loved it so decided to buy. Unfortunately the progress doesn’t seem to carry over to the full version of the game. Is there any way to skip the first 10 levels? @MrTruffle

  •  

    Damn, missed the steam sale from 2 weeks ago. @Dev will a sale come back anytime soon?
    Thanks!
