Back in 2017, Nintendo felt the gap between their users as they had to sit in one place to play their favorite games. So, to reduce this gap and improve customer relationships, the franchise launched its first-ever handheld console, the Nintendo Switch.

It was a game-changing device in the gaming industry as fans could game despite being in any corner of the world. This heavily benefitted the franchise as it churned massive revenue from its sales.

Apart from that, the franchise also started focusing on adding more and more Switch titles, giving fans the exclusivity of their purchase. And now, they’ve added another title to their library, gifting fans an Apple arcade marvel.

While the game was first limited only to Apple users, the developers felt the need to expand soon. Studio Drydock, the Australian developer, decided to launch them on PC and Nintendo Switch, entering the big leagues.

This massive thought change came right after the company got its award for best Apple Design in terms of Inclusivity on Apple Arcade. And now you may wonder what is it that makes the game so special, right?

Well, the game is one of the first that attempts to introduce LGBTQ-friendly characters, allowing each player to casually choose from the library. It is one of those titles where you just can take a break from your busy schedule and relax in the soothing atmosphere of the mystical land.
