Chicory: A Colorful Tale was a surprisingly sweet indie title that was released this year. Finally, this fan-favorite title is being ported to the Nintendo Switch starting today, which was one of the most requested updates that the developers received.
Chicory was released in the summer of 2021 with good reviews and a lot of fanfare. This cute little indie title is about some heavy-hitting subjects including self-doubt and depression with an adorable exterior, and it really hit home with a lot of cozy game enthusiasts. That being said, it was only released for PC, PS4, and PS5 at the beginning, even though the Nintendo Switch port was highly desired by the community. That all changed today with a Kickstarter update from the developers.
In an update this morning, Chicory developer Greg Lobanov sent out a letter to those who backed the title on Kickstarter in the summer of 2019 announcing that there was a surprise port to the Nintendo Switch. While this port has secretly been in the works for months, the developers were unable to talk about the port until today when it was released. Lobanov wrote that the port was a “very difficult secret to keep” since so many wanted this indie title to hit the Switch as soon as possible.
The letter went on to say that the developers are offering a discount for a Switch copy to those who backed the project originally. While gamers who order with the discounted code will have to wait a while for their copy to arrive, it’s a wonderful little extra bit of love from the developers to those who supported this game from the beginning. Now those who paid for Chicory once already on PlayStation or PC will now be able to own it on the platform where it will be even more at home.
Chicory: A Colorful Tale is the story of a dog who works as a janitor for the current Wielder of the Brush that fills the world with its color. But one day, all the color disappears from the whole world, and the janitor is left to take over the role of Wielder of the Brush and not only return color to the whole world but also save the last Wielder who has gone missing. Chicory is about a whole lot more than coloring, however, and players get to meet a ton of unique NPCs, learn lessons, and help friends get through hard times with the power of painting.
Chicory: A Colorful Tale is available for PC, PS4, PS5, and Switch.
