Sumo Digital confirmed that Snake Pass for Switch will enjoy a 40 percent discount until 4 July 2017. The sale is due to the occurrence of the summer solstice. The game's Steam version will also get its own temporary midsummer price cut..
The summer solstice this year happened on Wednesday, 21 June. Prepare for some more facts you were not expecting when you clicked on this article. The summer solstice occurs when a planet's rotational axis, or its geographic pole on either its northern or its southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits.
This, of course, has nothing to do with snakes. But there you go, Snake Pass went on sale nonetheless. Sumo Digital confirmed this. The Switch game will see a 40 percent decrease in its price starting today, 27 June, and ending on Tuesday, 4 July.
Moreover, a short teaser for the upcoming Snake Pass DLC was also released. The DLC will probably be available sometime this year.
Snake Pass is described as "a unique physics-based, puzzle platform adventure". You control Noodle the snake (haha I see what you did there) who has a hummingbird companion - Doodle (probably not named for his sketching abilities).
The pair has to "re-unite the missing Keystones with the magical gates that give Haven Tor its mythical power."
Snake Pass features:
- Unravel the mystery of the nefarious gatecrasher
- Restore Haven Tor to its former glory
- Slither into every nook and cranny in search of cunning collectibles
- A brand-new soundtrack from fan favourite composer David Wise
