The Keep out now on Switch

Keep on slashin'

After months of hard development and preparations, Prague based studio Cinemax is ready to announce the release of their dungeon crawler The Keep for Nintendo Switch.

The Keep is a modern take on old-school dungeon crawlers like Dungeon Master, Etrian Odyssey, Eye of Beholder or Wizardry. The basic concept of The Keep is simple: explore the dungeons in the first-person perspective, fight monsters with magic and weapons, solve puzzles, evolve your character.

It was first launched successfully for 3DS in 2014, then for PC (Steam) in 2017 and now it's coming to Nintendo Switch - with a lot of improvements in graphics and gameplay.

Why did the Switch version's development take so long? Because it's not just a port. The 3DS version utilised stylus extensively for magic and fights and PC version the mouse. To keep the game balanced and fun, we needed to come up with the completely new control scheme for Switch version using D-pad and analogue sticks. After many months of trying, we succeed. Switch version of the game also benefits from new content where you can level up your hero to be better prepared for challenges in later parts of the game.
