There’s a massive sale on at the Nintendo eShop right now, offering up to 90% discount on select Nintendo Switch games.
The Nintendo Switch Go Digital sale promises big discounts on digital-only games from the Nintendo eShop. There’s nary a putrid-tasting cartridge in sight, but still great savings to be found.
Top of the list is 30% off the award-winning Night in the Woods, from developer Infinite Fall and publisher Finji. It’s a touching and personal story of growing up and going back home, which we said is a “touching and poignant game” that captured a “bitter-sweet sense of youth receding into the distance and a lifetime of adult responsibilities barrelling over the horizon”. We liked it a lot, is the key takeaway here.
If Night in the Woods is your thing, you might also like Oxenfree, a very different coming of age story with one of the best dialogue systems in gaming. Oxenfree gets a massive 75% discount in the Nintendo Switch Go Digital sale.
If you prefer your adventures less chatty, more scary, then you can’t go wrong with Playdead’s Inside and Limbo. Limbo receives a 30% discount, while Inside is 35% off.
Another Thumbsticks favourite is Abzu, the underwater exploration adventure that carries with it a lofty environmental message. (But also offers a perfect opportunity to chill out and escape the world. And with 35% off? That’s a real bonus.)
Also featured in the sale is Wandersong, the game about a travelling bard that has such good Steam reviews, Valve’s algorithms don’t believe it’s a real game. You can believe it’s 30% off in the Nintendo Switch Go Digital sale, though.

We’re going to need a bigger SD card.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
