Contest: Win Niche, a genetics survival game, for Nintendo Switch


Baby I’m a survivor

In today’s contest you can win Niche for Nintendo Switch!

If you’ve ever wanted to explore animal husbandry in a video game based on real life genetics, then you’re in luck! Niche is a different little title combining turn-based strategy, evolution, and survival, and you can win a free copy for Switch!

This one’s got a pretty cool little story behind it. Lead designer Philomena couldn’t decide between biology and game design…so she went with both! She combined her love of biology and the animal kingdom into a video game where she could express her two passions in one project. Niche puts players in control of the survival of multiple species by means of evolution, giving their animals different genetic traits to help them survive throughout several generations in the face of danger.


  • Living, dynamic world to test your survival skills
  • Breeding system based on real genetics
  • Over 100 genes to shape your species
  • Procedurally generated worlds and animals
  • Five biomes featuring different predators, prey and flora to explore
  • Game mechanics inspired on population genetics
