We are officially well in to April, and with few Nintendo releases this month it’s up to the indie developers and third parties to deliver the goods. We do have Nintendo LABO 4.0: VR Kit to review this week, but what else does this week have in store?

Back to Bed (April 11th)
Publisher 2Awesome Studio and developer Bedtime Digital Games are brining the puzzle game Back to Bed to Switch this week, the game originally launched on pc in 2014 and gave players mind bending 3D puzzles that you think would serve perfectly in an art gallery.
In Back to Bed, players guide the sleepwalker Bob from his sleep-inducing office to the safety of his bed by controlling his subconscious guardian Subob, whose job it is to both guide and protect the sleepwalking Bob.
The pair will travel through a surreal and painting like world where the boundaries between Bob’s dream and reality have vanished, but where there are still real world dangers that threaten the sleepwalker. Ever vigilant Subob must now guide Bob around dangers and back to bed.
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! (April 11th)
When you think of cooking games, most would think Overcooked from Team 17 is one of the best out there. Well move on our because Vertigo Games Inc is here with there best selling cooking series Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! to prove that there are other master chefs out there in the game sector!
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! is the massive sequel to the surprise best selling original, one of the few games that gives players complete control on how they want to build their restaurant.
The game starts like any other morning at SherriSoda Tower as you take the elevator up to open Cook, Serve, Delicious!, a platinum star restaurant that was surging in popularity thanks to your amazing chef and management skills. Just then, a swarm of police surround SherriSoda Tower. It seems the SherriSoda head executives were secretly stealing funds from the company at the same time they were incurring a staggering amount of debt, draining the accounts of the tower and several of the businesses inside of it, including CSD. Just like that, the tower was closed and put up for federal auction, including everything inside of it. It was all over… the Cook, Serve, Delicious! restaurant was no more.
Angry but determined to rebuild, you’ve scrounged up all of your personal life’s savings and bought commercial space inside the Teragon Supertower, the largest skyscraper in the city. It’s here that you will start a brand new Cook, Serve, Delicious! restaurant, build it back to its former glory, and rebuild your legacy as the best chef in the world.
Other notable releases this week are ‘Way of the Passive Fist’, from Houshold Games Inc where you parry and dodge enemy attacks, only to counter the opponent heavily with a devastating blow! And off course the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy that is a must-play if you like a good detective story based game!
