Cozy day-to-day story game Fall of Porcupine heads to Nintendo Switch this year, with a free demo available right now on the eshop.

Fall of Porcupine Switch release: a small bird standing outside some hospital doors

If you’re a fan of story games with a wholesome message and a nicely drawn art style, then look no further than Fall of Porcupine. Critical Rabbit announced it during a Wholesome Games direct in 2022, we’ve kept the game on our radars and can now confirm it has a release date.

The Fall of Porcupine release date is this summer on June 15 on Nintendo Switch. The demo is a prologue to the main story called The Last Days of Summer and is available for free on the eShop.

The game comes from publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Critical Rabbit and is a sweet 2D adventure with some emotional undertones. You play as Finley, a bird who is the newest addition to Porcupine and works as a healthcare professional.

Explore the ups and downs of daily life working in a hospital as you deal with deep conversations, grief, happiness, and death. There are also secrets to discover in the town of Porcupine as you get to know the locals and settle into your new life.

Fall of Porcupine is reminiscent of A Night in the Woods and we’re sure the story is about to leave just as much impression on us. Creators promise that anyone can pick up the game and play, whether you’re a seasoned side-scroll expert or brand new to games.
