Bonkers New Indie Game Lets You Mash Up Different Genres

Illustration for article titled Bonkers New Indie Game Lets You Mash Up Different Genres

Supermash is a game about mashing up video game genres, and it’s coming to the Switch in May 2020. I’m psyched y’all.


I know I’ve had daydreams about gameplay mechanic crossovers I’d love to see. Just a second ago, Kotaku managing editor Maddy Myers and I were talking about how dope it would be if Metroid got rhythm game spin off, like Zelda did with Cadence Of Hyrule. I don’t know if Supermash, a new game coming to Switch next year, will let me make Rhythm of Ridley, but I can only hope. Here’s a trailer.


It feels extremely unfair that I’ll have to wait until May to play this, but c’est la vie. During today’s Nintendo Indie Showcase, one of the developers from Supermash’s studio, Digital Continue, also showed a code for his favorite genre mash up. You’re not making waiting for release any easier dude.

Update - 2:13pm: Well, I guess I won’t have to wait very long, as it’s already out on the Epic Store.

This would be a good game to have a free “Player” companion app that allows people to play your creations. Especially since, unlike, say, Game Dev Tycoon, you’re actually creating games instead of text boxes.
