Sold Out and Stonewheat & Sons have sealed and shipped cute postal puzzler KeyWe on Nintendo Switch and PC.
Available now for PC, via Steam, and on the Nintendo eShop, KeyWe is out to stamp its mix of postal chaos and cute pulls on gamers hearts. After wrapping up the ‘Best Family Game’ award at Gamescom 2020 awards, KeyWe is now available for anybody eager to send some urgent messages. The carrier charge will set you back around £19.99, 23.51 UK first class stamps, or local equivalent.
If you are a little confused about what all the fuss is and why I’m making mailroom jokes, then KeyWe is a chaotic co-op game starring Jeff and Debra, two small kiwi birds working in a fun and frantic mailroom. Players picking up their pads or Joycons will help these two jump, flap, peck and butt-slam their way across a range of bells, levers, buttons, and mechanical contraptions in order to keep the mail moving. You’ll type telegrams, ship messages, and do whatever it takes to get every package to its final destination. As odd as this sounds, there’s plenty of packages to sort and the whole thing looks entirely adorable. This one or two-player adventure might not quite be It takes Two but there is plenty to do when running a post office. Alongside the obvious dilemmas, the mini mail birds will also face hazards caused by wintery weather, autumnal thunderstorms and even odder problems. During each shift whirling sandstorms and blizzards, carnivorous plants and even paranormal activity attempt to disrupt the mail service. Assuming you manage to make it all in time, then Jeff and Dbera will score some silly new accessories as a reward for their efforts.
To check out a little more about KeyWe, have a gander at the trailer above or head over to the official website now, and I don’t actually think Sold Out are taking stamps as payment quite yet.
