I’ve grown to be a serious fan of the rogue sub genre the past few years. And though all aren’t made equal, there’s a ton of great rogue adventures out there. Which is why today’s announcement has me interested. It’s a rogue game called Space Robinson, and it’s coming to Nintendo Switch. Naturally the name Robinson in the title made me think of Lost in Space, but this looks to be a mashup of several popular space stories. Hell, there’s even a spacefaring raccoon here, for you comic book fans.

Though not much is known about Space Robinson yet, other than the release on Switch today, you can read some more details in the official press release below. Here’s hoping this one joins the ranks of the great rogue games out there, and doesn’t get jettisoned into the atmosphere.
