Indian game development studio Threye Interactive have announced that its 2D puzzle platformer Switch – Or Die Trying is now available on Xbox One.
In Switch – Or Die Trying the player journeys as the alphabet ‘I’ across an adventure to redeem broken friendships. The game uses classical platforming mechanics complemented with a unique ‘switching’ twist that adds versatility and challenge to its addictive gameplay.

An interesting fact is that the game was originally titled simply ‘Switch’ and amongst other near-death experiences that an indie title goes through, this game additionally faced a massive challenge close to its original launch – Nintendo announcing their gaming console also called ‘Switch’. The developers took this in their stride and expanded the name to Switch – Or Die Trying which very aptly describes the challenging and nail-biting experience.
The game art derives from alphabets and typographically inspired themes, offering 75 levels divided into 5 distinct worlds, with deceptively cute graphics and a simple-to-learn but difficult-to-master gaming experience. Levels are short, fast and fun offering replayability with speed runs, collectibles and some seriously intellectually stimulating puzzles.
Switch – Or Die Trying was Greenlit on Steam and released on PC in 2017. It also won an award as runner up for the best game of the year in the studio’s home country. Now as part of ID@XBOX, the game is available on Xbox One priced at £5.59.
