Third-person shooter Morphies Law from Cosmoscope GmbH has been struggling to retain a player base, the developers admitted upfront in a candid blog post, but they are “determined to fix the situation.” The Splatoon-like Nintendo Switch indie game, which has players take control of size-shifting robots in a Mexican Día de Muertos environment, released last August to a mixed reception.
The developer acknowledges that players are unable to find full games, which is a major concern for an online multiplayer-focused title. In an attempt to assuage any worries that the game’s following that Morphies Law will shutter, Cosmoscope GmbH instead said the exact opposite, promising new content. The promise, however, was quite vague.
Due to a bunch of reasons – some of which we could influence, others not – our launch wasn’t good and sadly it’s hard to find full games these days. This sucks for a multiplayer game and we are determined to fix this situation. For this to happen though, we need to make a big splash.
We can’t tell you yet what this big splash will be, but we can tell you this: You will get A LOT more Morphies Law – for free! We just ask you to be patient for a little while.
The whole team is hard at work improving things and implementing new ideas and content, some of which we think will make a big difference, and once it’s ready we believe it will convince people to go back to stealing mass and morphing massively, and not just on the Switch!
Whether Santa will deliver the package we don’t know yet, but we can tell you that it won’t be the Easter Bunny.
Soon we’ll start sharing some more details about what we are working on, and we’ll be updating this page with that information. Worry not, we’ll let you know on social media whenever there’s an update!
Thank you all for your support until now, it’s been fantastic and we will make sure that you aren’t disappointed with what’s to come.
Nevertheless, the promise is better than nothing, some might say. One can assume that the new content could include new maps, game types, and cosmetics, which is usually a draw to online games that attempt to nurture a community.
As we wait on further news about the faltering multiplayer game, check out our own review of Morphies Law here. A PC version is due to release later this year.
