Puzzler meets brawler to take players on a whirlwind adventure… in space!

OTTAWA, ON, September 30, 2019 – Nintendo Switch players can now join the team at StarBlox Incorporated – where sorting cargo is a contact sport!

A unique mash up of a puzzler and a brawler, Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation - developed the game for Nintendo Switch in partnership with Seed Interactive. Crafted for scientific accuracy by Ingenium’s expert science advisors and curatorial staff, StarBlox Inc. features stunning planetary backdrops which have been meticulously designed to ensure that players are fully immersed in a realistic world.

As players deliver cargo to the far corners of the solar system, each of the planets, moons and asteroids presents new challenges – from black holes to gravity to waves of lava. This interactive game tests quickness and ability to efficiently to beat the competition. But watch out – the shipping world is fierce! An opponent can sabotage work by stealing blocks, delivering punches or even throwing someone in the incinerator!

Game features include:

  • Two local competitive multiplayer modes for up to four people
  • Single player “Career mode”
  • Seventy-two unlockable photobook entries about the planets, moons and asteroids in the game, with images provided by NASA

StarBlox Inc. is now available for pre-purchase in North America, and will launch in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch later this fall.
