Where Cards Fall Making the Leap From Apple Arcade to PC and Switch in 2021

Where Cards Fall Making the Leap From Apple Arcade to PC and Switch in 2021

The Blaseball team's house-of-cards adventure is coming to new platforms.

A different kind of house of cards is coming to some new platforms. Developers The Game Band and Snowman announced today that Where Cards Fall is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC, via both Steam and Epic Games Store, in 2021.

Set in a surreal, dreamlike world, Where Cards Fall is about building houses of cards to relive memories. Originally an Apple Arcade launch game, the puzzler is making its way to Nintendo's handheld too, as well as PC setups.

Where Cards Fall was on our recent list of 20 games from BIPOC creators you should be keeping your eye on, so it's good to see the shuffling narrative expand out beyond just Apple. No firm date has been set yet, though today's release says it will be coming in "early 2021."

If you recognize the name The Game Band, that might be because you're also participating in the cultural event of Blaseball. The studio created Blaseball as a side project, but the blend of fantasy baseball simulation and collaborative fiction gained some pretty significant steam when it went live.

The Game Band just concluded a two-week storyline that's easily one of its most bonkers narratives yet. The short version: a giant squid brought our friends back from the afterlife to destroy god, who was a peanut, and save a number of trapped players.

Honestly, with all that going on, I'm surprised The Game Band has found the time to put together a Switch and PC port on the side. Given how enthralling Blaseball has been during this stay-at-home time, though, I'm certainly eager to give the team's other work a shot.

Where Cards Fall will arrive on PC and Nintendo Switch in 2021.
