Officially titled “Happy Birthdays”, Yasuhiro Wada has teamed with NIS to bring some sandbox world-building to the Switch.
Well, it’s a weird title. I don’t think there’s any way around that. It just is. But Happy Birthdays also looks like it might be plenty interesting.
The game lets players craft “cube shaped” worlds. And within those worlds are some “diverse and unique lifeforms”. For example – dinosaurs. But you can’t just spring dinos (or anything else) up from the ground. And to that end Happy Birthdays tasks players with actually creating an ecosystem.
With careful experimentation, players can shape the geography and alter the temperature of each world to create the conditions for life and witness the birth of an entire ecosystem!
Yeah, it might look all cute, but this seems to be a pretty deep game. And it’s actually not the first in the line. Happy Birthdays is a sequel to Birthdays the Beginning (which has an even weirder title), a game already on the PS4 and Steam for the PC.
Happy Birthdays has undergone a serious course of revisions though, to improve it over it’s predecessor. That includes in-game stuff and UI improvements, according to the press release.
All in all, it sounds like an interesting time. And if it sounds like your cup of tea, you can grab a copy on the Nintendo Switch as of June the 5th.
