The rating was lower on Nintendo Switch mainly due to performance issues and long loading times

 

 

– UPDATES AND NEW CHAPTER RELEASE

Suicide Guy has been in constant development with new Updates, bug fixes and new content

And since the game sold well, we’ve decided to release a new chapter of the game called Sleepin’ Deeply on Steam (Soon on Console):

Which sold over 2.000 copies in the first month.

 

 

– CONCLUSIONS AND FUTURE UPDATES

In the end the game release and feedback from the public were great and it helped us to continue the development of the game.
We’re actually working on the Xbox One release and the new chapter console release.

Since the game went well we’re actually thinking of new levels and chapters that we would like to release in the future, so expect new content coming soon!
