Porcelain Fortress has just achieved the impossible by being the first Icelandic company to publish a game for a Nintendo game console. We have just launched No Time to Relax for the Nintendo Switch. We also published a big update to accompany the launch for Windows and Mac OS as the game supports cross-play between PCs and Switch.
Porcelain Fortress was founded in April of 2017 and the team was one of 10 teams chosen to participate in Startup Reykjavík over that summer. After the accelerator was over we were welcomed at the offices of Innovation House in Seltjarnarnes and have had our office there since.
No Time to Relax is the companies first game, launched in August of last year for Windows and Mac OS. The team is now doing the groundwork for the companies next game: The Citadel. There players need to build and maintain a colossal tower in a fantasy setting.
No Time to Relax can be found here on Steam for PCs:
The game launches on the 20th of February for Switch in Europe, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
On the 24th of February it launches in North- and South-America.
