Nintendo Download: April Fresh

The first full week of April brings a heavy dose of smaller scale releases to the Switch, including indie title What They Don’t Sea.

“Smaller” might be an understatement

April hasn’t typically been known as an anchor month for big new game releases, and this new Nintendo Download is perfectly evident of that. Included in this first week of April is a chunky list of small, indie titles, that includes pretty much exclusively games you won’t have heard of.

The one possible exception to that is What They Don’t Sea An undersea game of exploration and O2 management, What They Don’t Sea casts players as a diver who’s been assigned a mission to collect algae samples from the deep, dark. Along the way, said diver will have to deal with controlling his oxygen supply, as well as some friendly and not-friendly sea life.

Here’s the full list of what’s new:
