Unleash the Bouncy Power of Mjölnir in Tiny Thor, Available August 3rd on Nintendo Switch and Discounted on Steam Until August 7th
Watch out! There’s an Army of Adversaries Poised to Do Anything and Everything to Stop Thor from Growing Up
Karlsruhe, Germany (July 18, 2023) – Today, Gameforge—a leading Western publisher of MMORPGs—announced that 16-bit pixel platformer Tiny Thor will be available on Nintendo Switch on August 3rd. The PC version will get an update on July 31st that will introduce bug fixes as well as an accessibility mode to make easier gameplay optional for beginners. Additionally, the game will offer its first 20% Steam Sale running July 31st until August 7th to celebrate the upcoming Nintendo Switch launch.
Developed by Asylum Square and published by Gameforge under its IndieForge publishing label, Tiny Thor marries old-school indie charm with tight controls and modern gameplay.
Recently released on PC to critical acclaim, Tiny Thor features 16-bit graphics and gameplay centered around using a mini-Mjölnir as players lead our pint-sized Norse protagonist through 36 challenging levels filled with all kinds of obstacles. Use the mighty hammer and its unlockable power-ups to travel the realms of Asgard, defeating an army of adversaries dead set on stopping Thor in his tracks.
Increasing the nostalgia further, Tiny Thor features art from veteran pixel artist Henk Nieborg (Spyro: A Hero’s Tail, Contra 4, Shantae series) and an original soundtrack from Chris Hülsbeck (Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, Turrican).
“We’re very happy that the mightiest, but tiniest, god of thunder is making his way onto the Nintendo Switch,” said Jochen Heizmann, Asylum Square co-founder. “Not only does it open up Tiny Thor to a whole new audience, but the ability to take his adventure on the go means that you can embody the diminutive demigod and continue his quest from anywhere.”
“Our excitement for the Switch release has us bouncing like mini-Mjölnir,” joked Flavio Canciani, lead producer of Tiny Thor. “We’ve seen the hugely positive response to the PC release and are so happy that PC players are enjoying Thor’s quest. Now it’s time to bring the wondrous journey to Switch, where we sincerely hope that console players will enjoy Thor’s adventure too.”
Key Features of Tiny Thor:
- It’s Hammer Time!: Use the ricocheting mini-Mjölnir and its special abilities to complete puzzles and defeat enemies
- Small, But Mighty: Triumph in epic boss battles against Norse mythology icons such as the Kraken and Loki
- Old School, New Game: Art from veteran pixel artist Henk Nieborg and an original soundtrack from Chris Hülsbeck enhances the game’s retro credentials
