Weird mass-stealing multiplayer shooter Morphies Law is out today on Switch in a surprise release after a lengthy radio silence since unveiling the game's unique body part-morphing mechanic.
When does Morphies Law release?
Morphies Law will release through Nintendo's eShop today (August 20) at 19:00 CEST / 1800 BST / 1300 EST / 1000 PST, with a PC release scheduled for later this year via Steam.
The eight-player competitive team shooter, which was revealed during Nintendo's Nindie showcase last year, has been in quiet development since, even missing out on a spot in March's Nindie update causing many to wonder where the size-shifting game had shrunk off to.
If you saw the #NindiesShowcase and are wondering where @MorphiesLaw was, just know that we're currently putting all our efforts into finishing the game and decided to fully focus on the development. We will keep you updated! #Nindies— Morphies Law (@MorphiesLaw) March 20, 2018
The game's surprise release may have many fans excited for the unique game, which features a self-balancing difficulty modifier depending on player skill.
Hitting an enemy will transfer mass from their body part to your own, making you a larger target and them a smaller one. Since you're now a gigantic titan and they're a tiny speck, it's far easier for you to be hit than them.
The full game releases with four maps, which provide advantages to different body types (larger legs mean you can jump higher, smaller bodies mean you can fit inside tunnels), and three game modes built around the mass-transfer mechanic.
