Niche next steps (Mobile? Consoles?)

Dear pack

As you know the Sandbox Settings Update has recently been released on the main branch, yay :D
Now you may be wondering what comes next for Niche, so we wanted to give you a little update!

There won't be any big new updates for the PC game in the coming months.
However we have 2 cool things to share with you ^^

1) We are currently working on a prototype to bring a brand new game set in the Niche universe to mobile!
These are very early mockup screenshots. The game focuses less on survival and more on breeding.
Please note however that we will only finish and release this game if we think we can make something very cool out of it and its still too early to tell.

Larissa is the game designer and artist for the Niche mobile game.
Here you see her (left) playing the paperprototype with me :D

2) We're currently trying to port the game to Switch! For that we need a frozen version,
which means we can't really update the game for now (except for bug fixes).
Please note that here again nothing is 100% sure yet!

It might be a bit early to share all this with you, since the outcome of both projects is still uncertain. 
However we wanted to tell you what we're currently working on :)

Will it be free or you need to buy it?

Because here in Aus we have extremely high prices for apple money cards. (Is it even on apple?)

@Impy10
The plushie we are currently trying to make is Adam as a baby.
We don't know about the monetizing yet. And yes the goal would be to release it on Apple and Android.

Can you also make Eve? (Once you make Adam, of course.)

We don't even know if we can make Adam yet :)
And if we do we'll have to order like 500 plushies at least (that is what plushie producers usually ask for)
So first we'd need to see if there are even enough people interested, maybe via a small Kickstarter ^^

There is look interesting, but I hope PC version still will be support and give new update or... Somethings paid DLC? I think this not bad idea. The game has potential and it's a shame to abandon it.

They had said that they plan for the app to be free, with micro-transactions. I'm not sure about the stores.

Niche on Switch would be an absolute dream for me! I'm disabled (ME/CFS and POTS) and often don't have the energy to even use my laptop, so the Switch has been a huge boon in terms of accessibility. I hope the port is coming along well, I know these things take a lot of work! Do you have any progress reports you can share? I'd love to know how it's going.

The port is coming along well! We're currently working on improving the performance. No release date set yet, but we hope for summer or autumn.
