Today, on the International Hug Day, iHUGU – another game from Koo2Play studio, is out on Nintendo Switch. This time, the creators who are known for unusual productions such as Clock Simulator, present the game based on… hugging.
iHUGU is a memory type of game where the main goal is to remember as many unique characters as possible that are falling into the player’s arms. The catch is that each character can be hugged only once. What can be so difficult in remembering characters that will be repeating after some time, anyway? Well, in addition to people known from movies, games, public life or history (including Napoleon, Little Red Riding Hood, Dalai Lama, Trump or John McClane from the movie “Die Hard”), the crazy ideas on new characters will be given to the player by an automatic wizard. The combination of all possibilities is more than 20,000 unique mixes, the effect of which are absurdities such as the Dalai Lama’s connection with Rambo.
Especially for the users of the Nintendo Switch console, a new multiplayer mode was created from scratch and introduced to the game. As in the old days, when playing together was about sharing experience on one sofa, it allows two users to play together, each using their own Joy-Con. The crucial factor is the memory of each player – the first one who hugs a character that has been hugged before, loses.
However, this is not all that the game has to offer – there is also a place for several mini-games, a lottery and other additional attractions!
The game can now be purchased via Nintendo eShop for $3,99.
