Unnecessarily rude and unprofessional, yes it might get annoying people asking for the same things over and over but customers buy the games that pay your bills. If anything, fans begging for things is free market research.

And people are buying their game on the platforms the devs have released towards.

The game has been released on PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, Macintosh operating systems. If you're Switch only (gods knows why) then you're out of luck. 



                                       

Why? Seriously, why? Why turn down a chance to sell to more people who are clearly interested, myself included?

Like I said. I don't get the rage about it. The game doesn't look like something people should get upset over. There's enough to play on the Switch. If they want it badly, get it on PC or something. Wasted outrage.

Its a bit weird, but maybe they had some trouble with Nintendo about the game. The game is on PS4, XB1 and PC if you have any of those though.

Going Switch only is pretty silly, considering all the other platforms have access to even more titles than the Switch currently has. I'm PC first and Nintendo second, so if I want to double dip, I will, but only for the Switch. if the game is on PC but not on the Switch, I'll just grab it on PC.

 

Most people these days already have a primary platform, with a second system on the side, if that's anything to go by.

I play all my platforms equally, PS4-Switch-PC (no Xbox). While I rather gravitate to playing my indie games on the Switch (for portability sake), I don't mind certain ones not coming. I just play them on my PC. I have a massive indie collection through Humble Bundle :D

thats a bit weird and a little unprofessional. the Switch has been a haven for indie games since it launched, you would think they would want to port the game to it, but theyre acting like they arent even trying to support the console. and that just means less sales and less publicity.

Although Gears for Breakfast haven't given their reasons (as far as I'm aware) people have pointed out that it's likely got a lot to do with the game running on Unreal Engine 3, which does not support the Switch. A port would be a significant investment and it might turn out terrible. There could well be other reasons too, but they did state some months ago that a Switch port would be unlikely for this reason.



Well at least they is more respectful when it comes to shutting down port beggers unlike Kamiya.
