Playable Sitcom 3 out of 10 Comes to Nintendo Switch on 3 March
Binge Season One of Game Dev Satire with Special Features
BOSTON — 11 Feb., 2020 — 3 out of 10, the episodic playable sitcom from Terrible Posture Games about life at the world’s worst game development studio, goes multi-platform with a pivot to Nintendo Switch on Wednesday, 3 March.
Over 4.5 million players tuned in for 3 out of 10’s debut season last fall on the Epic Games Store, where new episodes released every week for five weeks. Now, on consoles, experience the entire five-episode season in one package. Dive deeper with a bevy of brand-new special features including the surprise-filled Open Explore Mode, actor profiles, the official soundtrack, a concept art gallery, Big Head Mode, and director commentary.
Game animator Midge Potter shows up for a job interview at Shovelworks Studios, a beleaguered bunch of game dev ne’er-do-wells who have yet to earn a review score higher than 3 out of 10.
Before she can ask, “What’s your work-from-home policy,” Midge finds herself fending off shark-obsessed protestors, shuttling sacrificial interns back to the campus halls from whence they came, and stocking up on foam bullets for an office-wide battle royale. Small wonder the Shovelworks team can’t seem to finish their game. How are you supposed to get any work done with sentient mannequins and a flamethrower-obsessed character artist wreaking daily havoc?
Equal parts video game and animated show, 3 out of 10 tackles the ridiculous business of making games with irreverent reverence. Follow a cast of zany, larger-than-life developers while each episode pays homage to gaming history with clever mini-games. Brave a game dev university, the secret tunnels to Canada, and more with cover-based shooting, side-scrolling brawls, first-person sneaking, brain-teasing puzzles, pinball, and loads of other game styles both fresh and nostalgic.
“Bringing 3 out of 10 to Nintendo Switch was a chance to give new and returning players alike a fresh look at what it’s really like to be a game developer,” said Joe Mirabello, creative director for Terrible Posture Games. “And if that’s not enough of a window into this industry, check out our directors’ commentary for thoughts about making a game about making a game!”
3 out of 10 will launch for Nintendo Switch on Wednesday, 3 March for $9.99. For more well-intentioned lampooning, hang out with Terrible Posture Games on Twitter, Facebook, Discord, and the official website.
