Yeah, Furi is coming to Switch soon, early 2018. We have put a lot of effort in it, but we are very happy with the result!!

The game looks and plays great! The Switch version will include all the content that has been released for Furi across all platforms so far, as well as all even more optimization, bug fixes and other tweaks we have done over the last months. It’s a great package for Switch players.

Apart from the pleasure of having a whole bunch of new players discovering the game, we are also particularly happy as there was not one day when we didn’t receive a mail or a tweet from a fan asking for Furi on Switch. We heard them in particular talking about the pain of having to interrupt a fight because life was calling. Well now with the Switch, you can continue your boss fight on the go!

At The Game Bakers, we love the Switch and we play on it a lot, but we are particularly proud to bring a game like Furi on it. There are not many fast-paced arcade & action games on Switch so far!

The game will be priced $20/20€.
We will confirm shortly the release date.

The trailer is here:

The full press release is below.


November 30, 2017 – Indie developers The Game Bakers brings their ultra-fast-paced, combat-action hit Furi to Nintendo Switch.

Furi is all about the tension of one-on-one fights against imposing opponents over a mysterious quest for freedom. Praised for its unique mix of sword fighting and twin-stick shooting, Furi has been called “supremely stylish and intensely engaging” (Games Radar) and “tight and empowering” (Games™), and has garnered 92% in positive user reviews on Steam.

Watch the Switch announcement trailer for Furi here:

With its stylish aesthetic and unique character design – by Takashi Okazaki, Afro Samurai’s creator – and its killer soundtrack featuring popular electro musicians Carpenter Brut, Danger and more, the game is a love letter to Japanese action games such as No More Heroes, Metal Gear Solid and Godhand.

“Furi is a game that’s constantly taunting you,” comments Emeric Thoa the game Creative Director. “There is something deeply personal about a boss fight: it’s just you against one opponent. And being interrupted is even more frustrating than losing. But with the Switch, you can take the game and all of its boss fights with you wherever you go. »

This feature-complete Nintendo Switch edition will be available early 2018, including all the content and improvements released so far for Furi.

The Game Bakers is an independent game studio founded by Audrey Leprince and Emeric Thoa. To sum it up, they make their games like they cook their food: with a lot of love. They strive to bring gamers experiences that will be remembered long after the game is finished. Aside from Furi, their track record since going indie includes the SQUIDS tactical action series, available on mobile and Nintendo platforms, and the mobile brawler Combo Crew.

Questions-Réponses sur l’industrie du jeu vidéo et les métiers

[English below]

Tous les ans à cette période, je reçois des dizaines de candidatures d’élèves de 3ème qui veulent faire leur stage chez Game Bakers. Depuis quelques années j’ai aussi des demandes d’entretiens par des étudiants en IUT d’informatique, qui désirent poser des questions à un professionnel afin de dresser le portrait d’un métier lié à l’informatique.

Evidemment, je ne peux pas recevoir tous les élèves de 3ème, ni faire dix entretiens d’une heure auprès des étudiants. Mais j’aimerais proposer quelque chose cette année : un questions-réponses en live, sur Twitch, pendant lequel je répondrai aux questions des spectateurs connectés sur le chat ou à des questions que l’on m’aura préalablement envoyées par email, sur Twitter ou sur les commentaires de ce post.

Ce stream s’adresse à tous ceux qui sont intéressés par l’industrie du jeu vidéo, les métiers du jeu vidéo, les études pour intégrer cette industrie, les compétences requises pour trouver un emploi et s’y plaire. Une attention particulière sera portée aux questions des plus jeunes et des filles – à qui l’on veut parfois faire croire que l’informatique et les jeux vidéo sont des trucs de mecs.

Pour participer :

  • Envoyez vos questions par email à emeric (at) thegamebakers (.com)

  • Envoyez vos questions en laissant un commentaire ici même.
  • Connectez-vous sur Twitch à cette adresse, samedi 25 novembre 2017 à 14h (début du twitch vers 14h15) :

A samedi !

[For the english speakers]

I’m doing a Q&A about the game industry, the jobs, the schools, on twitch on saturday 25th. The goal is to answer questions from students and especially young ones (14/15 y.o.). It’s going to be in french only, but if many non-french speakers are interested I could do that again in english.
