Queen Bee Games and publisher Akupara Games have teamed up with artist Jesse Jacobs to create a new psychedelic platformer. Spinch is a kaleidoscopic odyssey through a weird world full of enemies and bosses to fight, varied environments to traverse, and infinite replayability.

Spinch was announced during today's Summer Game Festival. You are the titular Spinch, a "hyper-agile organism" on a quest to rescue its missing offspring from those who wish to do the brood harm. Of course, that means you can naturally launch said offspring at enemies as projectiles. Spinch won't have a lives system or a game over screen, so it's designed to be welcoming to platforming newbies and veterans alike. You can check out the announcement trailer for Spinch right here:

According to its creators, Spinch is a "dazzling color explosion" which also manifests as a "fine-tuned platformer" with tight controls. You'll jump, dodge, and sprint your way through six different worlds, each of which has its own eccentric boss to defeat. Rather uniquely, the soundtrack was composed by musician James Kirkpatrick on "modified Gameboys" and hand-made electronic instruments. It seems that Queen Bee and Akupara are sparing no expense when it comes to lavishing weird attention on Spinch.

If this looks like your kind of game, you'll be able to check out Spinch when it launches on September 3rd. It'll be available on PC and Nintendo Switch and will set you back $14.99. We haven't heard anything about a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version yet, so stay tuned for more info on this one.
