(Excerpt from Kickstarter project page)
We love board games that bring people around a single table. Playing face to face, in earnest, respectfully battling against each others’ wits, and letting our imaginations run wild. We believe it’s one of the best forms of entertainment. However, the unpredictable future affected by COVID-19 has shaken the culture of this great pastime to its very foundations. Wouldn’t it be great if we could play board games online even if we couldn’t meet in person. Making it as easy as if we were sitting at the same table…
That’s why Oink Games has decided to develop software that allows you to play board games online on your Nintendo Switch, called “Oink Games +”! We’re taking on a big challenge to digitize the fun of board games, just as they are.
Oink Games will continue to create games that make peoples’ daily lives richer and more enjoyable , whether it’s digital or analog media.
