physical release of Creature In The Well
With an unlikely mash-up of pinball and scifi adventure, you're the last robot engineer on Earth
Released in September 2019, Flight School's Creature in the Well has been referred to as a Pin Brawler. Whatever you call it, this unique game is getting a physical release via iam8bit for both Nintendo Switch and PS4. I haven't played this game, but it's gameplay is pretty cool and I love the pinball elements. Check it out!

From the Nintendo website:
Creature in the Well is a top-down, pinball-inspired, hack-and-slash dungeon crawler. As the last remaining BOT-C unit, venture deep into a desert mountain to restore power to an ancient facility, haunted by a desperate Creature. Uncover and upgrade powerful gear in order to free the city of Mirage from a deadly sandstorm.

- Pinball with swords: Charge up energy orbs, then bounce and ricochet them to reactivate dormant machinery and stop the sandstorm.
- Defeat the Creature: Escape the many challenges set by the Creature and confront it in intricate, skillful battles.
- Dungeon-crawler: Delve deeper into the mountain as you unlock eight hand-crafted dungeons, each filled with unique gameplay themes, unlockables, and secrets to uncover.
- Over 20 unique items: Customize your playstyle with upgradeable weapons and clothing that change how you play the game.
