Every Paid Purchase Counts.
And do leave a Review.

This Demo was made during Greenlight and has a few caveats:
-Contains limited levels (full game has 75 levels, demo only 12)
-Does not full reflect the final polish
-May contain bugs that have been addressed in the full version of the game

As a throwback, here's a few youtubers reviewing the Demo:
special info*- the game was originally titled 'Switch' (as seen in this demo). We had to expand the name in the final version to differentiate ourselves from the console.

Thank you.

“Borrowing a lot of core mechanics from similar hit titles such as Super Meat Boy (to great effect), Switch - or die trying is a brilliant purchase for any fan of the genre”
8/10 – Enthusiastic

“I had a fun time avoiding the obstacles and making my way through most of the stages. There were a few that made me want to throw my controller across the room”
Defunct Games

“Switch – Or Die Trying is likely to remain hidden among the vast treasure trove of good games on Steam, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t seek it out and play it!”
3.5/5 – Hey Poor Player

Steam Greenlight

We're a really small team from India, many thanks to everyone who supported us during Greenlight and beyond, has been a wonderful experience.

About This Game

This game is hard, really hard! You’ve been warned.

In Switch - Or Die Trying you play the character ‘I’ who has lost all of his friends — his friends being the other 25 letter of the English alphabet — and must help win them back by completing 75 highly challenging levels.

key Features:

  • Switching mechanic; change forms between small ‘i’ and big ‘I’ this affects the worlds around you and also give you an extra jump (not to be confused with double jump)
  • “Aww, so cute” main characters
  • Dynamic world elements which respond to your current state.
  • Split second decision making, you will have to keep your twitch reflexes sharp
  • Minimalist 2D ambient art style
  • Unique level progression, all levels of a world are at your disposal, complete just 10 levels to unlock a new world
  • 5 distinctive worlds, each having their own theme, dynamics, enemies and challenges that complement the player controls learnt right from the start
  • Speedruns, insanely difficult speedruns to test your nerves/rage/reflexes (Remember, you can always skip and come back to these later)
  • Puzzles, occasionally apart from reflexes, your puzzle solving skills will be put to the test
