Swing Across Stunning Worlds in Grapple Dog, Launching Next Month

Super Rare Originals and Medallion Games are proud to announce that Grapple Dog is coming to Nintendo Switch and Steam early next month.

Grapple Dog is a game we have had our eyes on for a long time. The game has almost been singlehandingly developed by solo developer, Joseph Gribbin, and he has done a absolutely phenomenal job. We were fortunate enough to play the demo back in October at Steam Next Fest, and honestly, we couldn’t get enough of it. You can check out our demo preview here.

This will also be the first launch for Super Rare Originals. However, that is not to be taken lightly. The five games they have already announced for their publishing label look absolutely amazing and they should all be on your wishlist.

What is Grapple Dog?

Grapple Dog is a fast-paced 2D pixel art platformer where you must use your grappling hook to swing across the levels. You play as Pablo, the Grapple Dog, and cross stunning worlds to stop robotic overlord, Nul, from destroying the world.
