Denver, CO – March 31st 2022 - Independent games publisher Versus Evil and developer Nighthouse Games today announced that their 2D platform action game Sockventure will launch on Nintendo Switch on April 14th.


Sockventure brings super fast, eye catching gameplay with its stunningly colorful graphics and frenetic 2D platform action over 200 handcrafted levels across 7 chapters. Developed by Nighthouse Games players take on the role of Supersock, a superhero tasked with finding all the missing socks inside a cursed washing machine.


Precision-based gameplay and split second timing are essential to navigate the intricately designed levels filled with deadly hazards such as fire, lasers, circular saws and other dangerous threats.


Sockhero can acquire new skills during his deadly sock retrieval mission, wall jumping, double jumping, dashing and stomping help him navigate the myriad of colorful levels and devious hazards in the search for lost socks. Sockhero can also collect coins scattered throughout the levels which unlock dark chapters, presenting a whole new platforming challenge without auto-run.


Sockventure brings a fantastic mix of difficulty, depth, vibrant level design and rapid fun gameplay to the platforming genre, not to mention that the game is another fantastic candidate for the speed run community to tackle.” said Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil. “The Nintendo Switch is famously home to many great platformer games and we know that fans of this genre are getting one of the best platformers in 2022.”


Sockventure was previously launched on PC and is available on Steam, GOG and The Epic Game Store.
