Sumer is a unique blend of modern board game design and exciting real-time action, set against the beautiful backdrop of a mysterious ancient civilization.

To claim the throne, four nobles of the ziggurat must compete for Inanna’s favor. She is not easily pleased, but what god is? To prove your worth you must perform sacrifices according to Inanna’s sacred rituals. Place your workers in workshops to gain resources and goats. Offer up the resources to Inanna and use the goats to trade for new workshops and abilities. Only the swiftest and cleverest noble will become the ruler of Sumer.

A Worker Placement Video Game!

Sumer takes the board game mechanic of worker placement to a new level. Each day, you and your competitors will awaken at dawn to begin your worship. Run and jump around the ziggurat to place your workers so they'll collect resources. You only have 2 workers, so you better figure out your strategy, move fast, and claim workshops before your friends beat you to it!

Real-time Dynamic Auctions!

Whoever is willing to sacrifice the most goats gets Inanna's blessing! The auction is simple — just move left or right to change your bid in real time. Each auction is a mind game of bluffing and bravado, and you never know an item’s real price until time is up! Trick your opponents into overpaying for their bids while you snag good bargains for your own!

Key Features

1-4 players - Play local with up to 4 players. Master playing solo or try to beat up to three of your friends.

Devious AI - A variety of personalities and skill levels makes the game a challenge for any player.

Comfortable game length - With a game experience of 20 to 30 minutes, Sumer plays in a fraction of the time of a comparable strategy board game.

Infinitely replayable - Randomized setup and a huge variety of different auction items make each playthrough a unique strategic experience.

Nuanced strategies - There is no single key to winning. Being quick on your feet and making smart long-term investments are both crucial to victory.

Sumerian culture - We’ve worked with professional historians to bring you the ancient civilization that invented writing, beer, and board games.

Customizable gameplay - Play the way you want by turning on variants like Big Head mode and Hidden Auction Items.
Your controls - The game can be played with controllers, mouse and keyboard, all at the same time!

The Switch is quite the indie haven, and sales have been fantastic across multiple games. Red Bull sat down with a group of indies to talk about their Switch support, and what they like about the platform. You can see some snippets from the interview below.

Shaun Roopra, The Dangerous Kitchen's artist, writer and games designer

"It’s simply a good console with killer games, but it’s also new and interesting. We’ve all seen a box that plugs into the TV countless times so it’s great to see something different. I once played Zelda in bed by placing the Switch console vertically on a table and lay in bed sideways with a Joy-Con in each hand. It wasn’t the most comfortable way to play but the fact that I could even attempt this wacky manoeuvre – what other console gives you the opportunity to experiment?"

Image & Form's Brjann Sigurgeirsson

"It's both handheld and stationary, and it supports both controller and touch input. The titles have been quite strong – you can't really say no to epic stuff like Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and, of course, our own game, SteamWorld Dig 2! Also, the Switch is very tasty: it's easy to set up, sleek and clean yet versatile and modular. Unboxing a Switch is like getting a Barbie doll with all the right accessories, the house, the car AND Ken. It's really desirable, a real fashion statement. What is perhaps most remarkable is that it's the first of its kind, that it took someone until 2017 to develop a hybrid like this. But Nintendo have always been very innovative. The only company I could have imagined with a product like the Switch is Apple, but they’re completely invested in touch input and would've muddled their own waters by starting to offer controllers."

Andrew Newey, the developer of Golf Story

"I think people like the idea of being able to take big games around with them. It seems really efficient to take your console game with you if you go somewhere. I feel like I'm getting extra value by getting a Switch game, even though I don't really use the handheld mode much."

THE UPDATE AQUATIC

Minecraft's oceans are going to get their biggest update ever! The Update Aquatic pours a ton of new features into the game, including coral, kelp, more types of fish, dolphins, explorable shipwrecks, new water physics and more! A newly revamped ocean will require a new weapon for you to defend yourself, so the Update Aquatic will also introduce the trident. Not only can this weapon be thrown at enemies and used in close-combat, it can also be enchanted for ace tactical advantages. The Loyalty enchantment will make it come back to you even after you've thrown it, while enchantments like Impaler and Slipstream Dash will... well, we'll let you use your imagination! The Update Aquatic will come to Minecraft in a future update.

MOB B IS COMING TO MINECRAFT!
We have a winner! Congratulations to Mob B you'll be added to Minecraft! Thank you to everyone who voted. It's fantastic that our players got to be involved in what goes in the game!

And another huge thank you for being part of MINECON Earth! We couldn't put on shows like this if it weren't for the support from our countless players all over the world. You truly helped us make a livestream and show that's accessible for everyone.

The Switch community will still be getting the new version of Minecraft with cross-platform multiplayer, but not until 2018. Nintendo has been a great partner and we’re really excited to fully bring Switch players into the fold, however, we need to make sure we deliver the best experience possible. So the new version of Minecraft will now be coming to Nintendo Switch next year. Xbox One, PC, mobile and Nintendo Switch, all playing multiplayer Minecraft together in 2018 - I'm getting emotional just thinking about it...
Thanks to Magitroopa for the heads up!

The following snippet comes from a Wirtschaftsforum interview with Dr. Bernd Fakesch, general manager of Nintendo D-A-CH (Germany – Austria – Switzerland), as translated by NintendoEverything.

Wirtschaftsforum: Dr. Fakesch, Nintendo is one of the pioneers of the video game console and, after several ups and owns, revolutionized the gaming market with the Wii. Now your newest product, the Nintendo Switch, has conquered the market. Can you explain the magic of Nintendo?

Dr. Bernd Fakesch: I think this magic is a combination of experience and the company’s philosophy. Nintendo has been making toys for nearly 130 years and has been on the forefront of the gaming industry since its beginning as well. Long before the Nintendo Switch and the Wii, we were setting industry standards with the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Game Boy and the games that were released for these systems – and we managed to capture the hearts of consumers. Thanks to years of experience, being able to create fun gaming moments is practically in the DNA of our hardware and software developers.

This is enhanced by our company philosophy, which puts a special focus on the player. Our developers always start with a certain gameplay concept. They evaluate what a new game or a new console needs to be capable of to ensure that it’s as fun as it can possibly be in order to make the player smile. Only then do we think about the technical details that are necessary to realize this, and which of our characters would be a good fit. This often produces unconventional and surprising results.

This is also how the Nintendo Switch was developed, the first home console that can be played on the go thanks to its integrated display, even when you’re not near a TV. The best example for the kind of unconventional thinking that’s common at Nintendo might be Super Mario though. He’s kind of an anti-hero, a blue-collar worker who’s capable, but is essentially the antithesis of the conventional superhero – but he’s nonetheless had great success for over 30 years, whether it’s with racing, sports or saving princesses. There are a whole bunch of other unique characters and franchises like The Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Yoshi and Splatoon which embody this idea of fun – and this certain kind of Nintendo magic.

It includes a beautiful professional recording studio (of course), as well as a client lounge area, 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a living room, a dining room, an updated kitchen and a 2 car garage.

Looks like Nintendo snuck out a minor update for ARMS after the big 4.0.0 patch. The game is now at version 4.0.1, but we have no idea what the update tweaks. Probably a minor hiccup or two that needed to be addressed. If patch notes come out, we'll make sure to update this post.
