The game will be initially available on the Nintendo eShop, Steam, Humble Store and The price of the game will be $15 USD.

In every level, the rules that dictate how everything works are present as physical objects; by manipulating these rules, the player is able to drastically alter the game logic and find surprising interactions. For example, the player character might change from the titular Baba into a sentient piece of rock, or make dangerous hazards float in air to pass safely underneath!


Baba Is You won the Excellence in Design and the Best Student Game awards in Independent Games Festival 2018, as well as the IndieCade Europe Choice Award at IndieCade 2018. The game is being ported by MP2 Games.
