The rat­ing was low­er on Nin­ten­do Switch main­ly due to per­for­mance issues and long load­ing times

 

 

- UPDATES AND NEW CHAPTER RELEASE

Sui­cide Guy has been in con­stant devel­op­ment with new Updates, bug fix­es and new con­tent

And since the game sold well, we’ve decid­ed to release a new chap­ter of the game called Sleepin’ Deeply on Steam (Soon on Con­sole):

Which sold over 2.000 copies in the first month.

 

 

- CONCLUSIONS AND FUTURE UPDATES

In the end the game release and feed­back from the pub­lic were great and it helped us to con­tin­ue the devel­op­ment of the game.
We’re actu­al­ly work­ing on the Xbox One release and the new chap­ter con­sole release.

Since the game went well we’re actu­al­ly think­ing of new lev­els and chap­ters that we would like to release in the future, so expect new con­tent com­ing soon!
